Rhett Akins

With his Top Five single "That Ain't My Truck," Rhett Akins became a sensation, however briefly, in the summer of 1995. Like many new country singers, he wasn't able to follow the record up with an equally successful second record, but he managed to cultivate a following of dedicated fans.

Aikins grew up in Valdosta, GA, learning to play guitar and forming his first band with his two younger brothers by the time he was 11. In 1992, he moved to Nashville, where he began singing on demos, as well as securing a publishing deal of his own. Eventually, Decca Records secured a demo of one of Akins' songs and the label offered him a contract.

A Thousand Memories, Akins' debut album, was released in 1994. After his first two singles -- "What They're Talkin' About" and "I Brake for Brunettes" -- cracked the Top 40, "That Ain't My Truck" became his breakthrough hit, rocketing to number three in the summer of 1995. "That Ain't My Truck" became his signature song and helped the album become a hit. For most of 1995, he toured as Reba McEntire's opening act, performing a few dates as a headliner as well.

In the summer of 1996, Akins released his second album, Somebody New. Although the record sold well initially, it quickly fell out of the Top 40. He returned in January 1998 with his third album, What Livin's All About. He signed with Audiom Records for 2002's Friday Night in Dixie and later with BNA Records for 2006's People Like Me. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I love this artist soo very much
I love the songs he writes! He had written many songs for many country artists. His son seems to be following his footsteps.
absolutely in love with this man and this song
Is it just me or on the cover art of A Thousand Memories he looks like Tom Cruise???
reading the bios on country vs. other genres hacks me off...they always have a negative slant, even if it's ever so slight. I am a writer, so I catch it. Back off country, you b**tards!

"That ain't My Truck" great song - great lyrics we have all been there sometime in our life in a relationship gone down the road. Keep the songs comin Rhett.
@ Minnesota Vikings Fan!!! Trace's last name is spelled Adkins and there's also Chet Atkins
ddecker62
I don't get it. Why do so many artist have the last name Atkins? Theres Rhet Atkins, Trace Atkins, and Rodney Atkins... Hmm Maybe if I change my last name to Atkins I might just become a famous country singer!
Love Rhett!!

Definately under-rated! ! That's Nashville for you.
One of the most under played and underrated singers

Rhett is one of the most talented country artists ever. His heartfelt lyrics hit home, and his sexy voice is always a pleasure to listen to. I don't know why he doesn't get the airplay he SHOULD- but he has plenty of loyal fans who LOVE him. His is one of the best acts to see live- so if you get the chance- don't miss it. He is also a very down to earth guy and a sweetheart besides. :)
