To bookend this Father’s Day week, this Friday’s song is Things Dads Do, a duet by Thomas Rhett and his dad, Rhett Akins. It is an emotional ballad that reminds you of both the joys and deep responsibility that comes with fatherhood. I have been listening to Rhett a lot lately. The “story” in this one is not as strong as some other Rhett ballads, but it hit home for me. The last graph of the song sums it all up.
Rhett actually did a version of Things Dads Do on Instagram last year. You can watch that here. The first video below is the debut performance that Rhett did on the Grand Ole Opry’s live broadcast on Saturday, June 12th, 2021. The second is the released audio of the duet.
Hope you enjoy Things Dads Do!
