    Country Music Star Thomas Rhett Prays Powerful Prayer During CMT Award Acceptance Speech: ‘We Love You, Jesus’

    This past week, country music star Thomas Rhett put prayer over self-praise when he accepted CMT’s Artist of the Year award at the CMT Music Awards. 

    After being called on stage at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville to accept his award, Rhett quickly turned the topic to the sudden death of fellow artist Kenny Dixon, Kane Brown’s drummer. 

    Dixon passed away tragically over the weekend after getting into a devastating single car-crash that took his life. 

    “I just want to lift up Kane and his family,” Rhett said, choking up. “And I want to lift up his drummer, and their family. And I don’t know if this is very conventional, but can I just pray really fast? Is that OK with everybody?”

    “Father God,” Rhett began his prayer. “We love You so much, while also [struggling with] 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 a peace that only You know how to bring somebody.” 

    “And thank you for this night. God bless country music. We love you, Jesus, and in Your name, we pray, amen.” 

    Later in the show, when country music legend Reba McEntire was presented with CMT’s Artist of a Lifetime award, she praised Rhett for praying on national television.  

    “That’s what we need in our life: a little more God,” McEntire said, tearing up. “We’ve gotta give this world back to God. We’ve gotta give Him the focus and the attention that He needs.”

    Not only did Rhett receive cheers from the crowd following his prayer at the CMT Awards, but he also received positive feedback on Twitter following his speech. 

    “Best thing that has happened on television in a very long time. Such a moving moment,” one Twitter user, Teresa Stout said. 

    Another user, Carolgene Galpin, wrote, “Thanks @ThomasRhett we need more men like you who will use their platform to give Him glory and pray for others! Well done.” 

    One user even pointed out, “I love to see this & I am not religious at all. Wanting to share compassion & love, to hope for someone to find peace in a time of pain by showing what he does when he needs those things is honestly such a beautiful thing.”

    “We need more of this. Love each other,” she added
