Thomas says, “Any time I get a guitar out, like, I can’t keep it in tune because they just want to turn the knobs and play the strings. And Willa Gray has a little baby piano that she plays a lot out of key. And they both sing a ton, and, like, they remember the words to my songs at such a young age.”
That last part might not be great if they walk around singing Thomas’ latest song, “Beer Can’t Fix,” with Jon Pardi, at the top of their lungs in public. Listen for the song on Bloomington-Normal’s #1 Country B104.
Even if neither of his daughters decide they want to live their life in the spotlight or on a stage, Thomas is convinced they will end up with a career related to that.
He says, “I think when you’re around it as much as they’re around music, like I think they’re gonna grow up to do something. They may not be a musician, but I think they would love to be in and around the entertainment business in some fashion.”
For now, Thomas and his family are anxiously awaiting the birth of his third daughter, who is technically due on February 3rd, but his wife, Lauren, would be thrilled if she decided to come early.
