Thomas Rhett: Midland & Mars

Last month, Thomas Rhett got the chance to meet one of his musical heroes, and he has a member of the band Midland to thank for it.  Thomas told Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton:

“This is more a story about a person in Midland, rather than Midland, although I love Midland so much. Cameron Duddy is the bass player in Midland. He’s produced a couple of videos for Bruno Mars, and is really good buddies with Bruno. So my wife & I took a couple of buddies to see Bruno in Memphis about a month ago. I texted Cameron and said ‘Are you going to Memphis?’ He said, ‘Yes,’ I said, ‘Cool, we’ll see you there.’  The day of the show, Cameron says, ‘I can’t go, but I’m gonna hook you up. I’m gonna get you to meet Bruno.’  This is like meeting Michael Jackson or Prince to me, he’s like my hero. So we get there, and we’re standing in Bruno’s tour manager’s office, and he’s like, ‘Bruno doesn’t do meet & greets on tour. So he may come here or he may not.’  I was like, ‘That’s OK, whatever, just glad to be here.’  And Bruno walks in the room, big smile on his face, holding a big bottle of tequila, and he goes, ‘Hey man, just wanna say congrats on your babies and your #1 record.’  It was like Mick Jagger said that to me.  I can’t describe it, but it was all Cameron who made that happen. So this is basically a massive thank you for helping me meet one of my heroes.”
