Thomas Rhett was honored as one of the CMT Artists of the Year Award last night in Nashville along with Kane Brown who dedicated the award to his drummer Kenny Dixon who was killed in a car crash recently.

Rhett got his honor after an emotional Brown took the stage and Rhett was also shaken by the tragic death of Dixon.

He said when he got his award, “I just want to lift up Kane and his family. And I want to lift up his drummer, and their family. And I don’t know if this is very conventional, but can I just pray? Really fast. Is that OK with everybody?”

Rhett then bowed his head and said, “Father God, we love You so much. While also something that we can’t comprehend. And so right now I pray that You would be with Kane and his family, and his drummer Kenny and his family, and bring them peace that only You know how to bring somebody.”
