Thomas Rhett Has Bigger Plans Than Music

Thomas Rhett has built a pretty spectacular career for himself, but his eyes are on bigger and more important things.

Thomas, who recently released a third studio album called Life Changes, intends to use his success for the greater good. "Using my platform for things other than just singing, I think is why I'm here in the first place," the "Unforgettable" singer says through his record label. "I mean obviously, we've got to get out there on stage and do what we do, and write songs and entertain people. But I do think there is a way bigger calling and reason that I am in the place that I am, and same with my wife."

I seriously love ALL the glasses in my signature #DIFFxAkins collection, but I REALLY love the way the blue lenses turned out???? It's definitely a bolder color combo than the others, but they're easy to wear and match almost anything. These (and all the colors????????) are selling super quick on diffeyewear.com so get your pair today ???? AND don't forget-this collection is supporting @147Million in sourcing food and medicine for orphaned children in Uganda, so you're helping to do some good in our world by purchasing???? thank y'all so much!! @diffeyewear #DIFFPartner

One way the pair is doing this can be seen in their partnership with DIFF Eyewear. Thomas' wife Lauren has designed a line of sunglasses for the company, which in turn is donating $100,000 to 147 Million Orphans, one of the couple's favorite charities. "I'm so proud and so inspired by my wife and the kind, selfless person she is," Thomas noted recently on Instsgram. Shop the product line here.
