Country music recording artist Thomas Rhett thanked the Lord Jesus Christ on stage Wednesday night after he tied with Carrie Underwood for the Entertainer of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) in Nashville.
The two shared the top honor, making history at the ACMs. A tie for Entertainer of the Year had never happened before at the annual Country music awards show.
“And the winner of the ACM Entertainer of the Year is… We have a tie,” host Keith Urban said. “This has got to, got to be a first… I don’t know if I am going to get… I have never heard of it.”
After Urban announced the co-winners to the television audience, Rhett, accepting his award, said: “Oh my goodness gracious. Keith, what is happening right now? Thank you to the Lord Jesus Christ, my Lord, and Savior,” he continued.
The Georgia native also thanked his wife, his young daughters, and others, along with his band, crew, and the fans.
Underwood added, “2020 man! Thank you, God, so much. All glory to God. Thank you to the ACM for putting me in such incredible company. I am more than happy to share this with Thomas Rhett.”
Underwood is now the only woman to ever earn three Entertainer of the Year awards. She won back to back awards in 2009 and 2010.
Rhett, 30, has released four studio albums, including It Goes Like This (2013), Tangled Up (2015), Life Changes (2017), and Center Point Road (2019). His last two albums were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Album in 2017 and 2019.
His four albums have produced nineteen singles on the Billboard Hot Country and Country Airplay charts, with 15 reaching the No. 1 position. Rhett has also written songs for Jason Aldean, Lee Brice, Florida Georgia Line, LoCash, and Michael Ray.
While accepting the CMT Artist of the Year award last October, Rhett thanked everyone and then prayed on the stage of Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center for fellow performer Kane Brown on the loss of his friend Kenny Dixon, who died after a car accident.
After accepting his award, he asked, “I don’t know if this is very conventional, but can I just pray, really fast? Is that okay with everybody?” Thomas then began, “Father God, we love you so much. Loss is something that we can’t comprehend, and so right now I pray that you would be with Kane and his family and his drummer Kenny and his family, and bring them peace that only you know how to bring somebody. Thank you for this night. God bless country music. We love you, Jesus. And in your name, we pray. Amen,” News reported last year.
That gesture touched Reba McEntire who commented on Rhett’s prayer as she later appeared to accept the Artist of a Lifetime award.
“Thomas Rhett, God bless you for praying in front,” she said. “You’re special, you’re special. That took guts, but as you said, you said, ‘That might not be aired on this,’ but He knows it better be aired. It better make the cut because that’s what we need in our life, a little more God. We’ve got to give this world back to God.”
Christian movie ‘Courageous’ to be rereleased in 2021 with new surprise ending
Award-winning filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick announced they will be rereleasing their blockbuster film “Courageous” with new scenes and a new ending.
The fourth film from Sherwood Pictures is scheduled to be rereleased next year in theaters. The brothers said viewers “will get to see what happens to many of the characters ten years later! It’s a new ending with a few surprises!”
“Courageous” was originally released in 2011 and grossed a total of $35.2 million, over 17 times its $2 million budget.
The Christian film follows Sheriff’s deputy Adam Mitchell (Alex Kendrick) who “endures a terrible personal tragedy that causes him to question what is really important to him. Taking comfort in his religion, Adam vows to become a better parent to his teenage son (Rusty Martin), and convinces his friends on the force to sign a pledge that they will all strive to become better Christians and better parents,” the film synopsis reads.
The successful Christian filmmakers are also gearing up to release a new film in the new year, following the success of “Overcomer,” which was released in 2019. Alex Kendrick attended the 28th annual Movieguide Awards earlier this year where he revealed the plans.
“We are shooting a movie this summer,” the actor told The Christian Post in an interview at the popular award show that honors faith and family content.
“We’re very excited about that and it’s a true story and it’s going to grab your heart. We love it!” he exclaimed.
The popular Christian actor said he and his brother, Stephen, who’s also his producing partner, “love the subject matter and what’s going to happen” as a result of it.
“We think it’s a very timely movie,” he noted.
Kendrick said he expects the film to be released in 2021.
The brothers are used to making original content such as their No. 1 box office hit “War Room,” but their next film was actually brought to them by a friend.
“We normally do write our own movies but this one was so powerful when we read it and we saw how it was very timely for today’s culture,” Kendrick told.
