Thomas Rhett Leads CMT Audience In Prayer

During last night’s CMT Artist of the Year celebration, Thomas Rhett did something that has long been needed on national television. He led the audience in prayer. Rhett’s moment came after Kane Brown accepted his honor, breaking into tears as he dedicated the award to his drummer, Kenny Dixon, who passed away in a car accident on Saturday, October 12.

Dixon was with Brown since before his record deal, and stuck by him through the days of doubt as the friends worked toward the decorated career Brown has experienced in the last several years. Filled with emotion and exhibiting some of the most mind-blowing strength imaginable, Brown stood on the stage, glanced up and let his friend know he and the band miss him. The audience looked on with eyes of sympathy and support for a colleague in the country music community.

Rhett then took the opportunity to share his love for Brown and ask the entire audience if he could take a moment to pray. With bowed heads, some of country music’s most recognizable stars joined him in the historically beautiful moment.

God bless you, Thomas Rhett, for such a wonderful and unexpected moment. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Kane Brown, his band, and Kenny Dixon’s family and friends.
