Exclusive: Thomas Rhett Talks Bringing His Kids Onstage and Teaching Willa Gray to Be a Fashionista

"I'm ruining her already!" Thomas Rhett admits with a laugh.

The 27-year-old country crossover star is talking about his 22-month-old daughter, Willa Gray, who is already showing signs of being a fashionista in the making.

"Every time she wakes up, the first thing she says is, 'Closet, shoes' and she goes in there and picks out what she wants to wear for the day. It's pretty hilarious," Rhett tells Et. "I am in trouble, I know. It's bad."

Since adopting Willa Gray from Uganda earlier this year, Rhett has been sharing his own love of fashion -- specifically, sneakers -- with her. Meanwhile, he's partnered with Daniel Patrick, Madeworn, New Era and his personal stylist, Kemal Harris, on a collection of limited edition, high-end merchandise, proving it's not all about cowboy boots and belt buckles in the world of country music.

Exclusive: Thomas Rhett Gushes Over the 'Sweetest Thing' Daughter Willa Gray Does When He's on the Radio

Thomas Rhett isn't like a regular dad -- he's a cool dad. 

The 27-year-old country star and wife Lauren welcomed two baby girls amid a banner year for his career. Rhett's been busy on his headlining Home Team tour since March and just last week became the first country act this year to top the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. 

"I was really surprised," Rhett tells Et. "I think as an artist, anytime you put a record out, you're just like, 'I hope people like it.' And so when you see your record go No. 1 and stay there for an entire week, that was just a huge feat for me and the team. I'm just so happy for the writers and the people that played on the record because we put a lot of hard work into this record." 

When it comes to picking favorites, Rhett says that wife Lauren is a fan of "Sweetheart," while 1-year-old

Latin American sales agency Habanero Film Sales is taking a wide-ranging slate of films to Cannes of which six are Cannes Marché premieres and three are part of the Guadalajara Goes to Cannes showcase: “Ausencia,” “Mi Mundial” and “Mis Demonios.” Docu “Nadie” by Miguel Coyula (“Memorias del Desarrollo”) participates in Cannes’ Doc Corner.

“More often than not, our titles are sourced from filmmakers who have studied at Cuba’s prestigious International Film & TV School of San Antonio de los Banos, among the most recent ones: ‘Luis,’ ‘El hombre que cuida,’ ‘Salsipuedes,’ ‘Santa y Andres,’ ‘Sharing Stella,’ and ‘Casa Blanca,’” said co-founder Patricia Martin, who added: “It is a kind of multinational, heterogeneous and iconoclastic professional fraternity.

Thomas Rhett on Giving Back and Why He’s ‘Terrified’ of Having a Little Girl

2017 is shaping up to be a pretty solid year for country music singer Thomas Rhett.

In February, he and his wife Lauren announced they were expecting a baby and adopting a child from Africa. And earlier this month, he walked away from the Acm Awards with three new trophies — including male vocalist of the year.

But even with all his new accolades and life changes, Rhett, 27, has never lost focus on his and Lauren’s commitment to charity. They have been very outspoken supporters of the 147 Million Orphans organization, hosting events to raise money for the cause and educating their

Thomas Rhett and Wife Lauren Expecting a Baby – and Adopting a Child from Africa

In December, Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren were on a week-long safari in Tanzania — a rare break from touring for the singer — when Lauren started feeling sick.

When the country star offhandedly suggested his wife take a pregnancy test, Lauren scoffed. “I was 100 percent sure I was not pregnant,” she tells People exclusively.

Months earlier, the couple had quietly started the process of adopting a baby from Africa — and stopped trying to have a baby on their own, she says.

“When we began the adoption process, we said, ‘Let’s wait, let’s give this adopted child his or

DeSean Jackson’s Bet Series Ready to Dive into NFLer’s Personal Life

Two years after his older brother Byron debuted the documentary “DeSean Jackson: The Making of a Father’s Dream,” Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will continue to document his life off the field with the six-episode Bet docu-series “DeSean Jackson: Home Team.”

Lafca Names "Amour" The Best of the Year. (Plus Boston & Nyfco)

Warning this post will contain no photos of Zero Dark Thirty in protest. It's a film I thoroughly enjoyed but critical sweeps do great injustice to the art of cinema each year. No film or performance has ever been so great as to be the only achievement worth rewarding in its calendar year. The modern age of hive-mindedness also does great injustice to awards season which needs drama as fuel. This is not to say that one shouldn't vote one's mind if a certain sweeper is also your personal favorite but if everyone's personal favorites are always the same we automatically a) need fewer groups trumpeting the collective opinion or b) we need more critics who have idiosyncratic taste to keep the art of the discussion of cinema at its liveliest.

Euro 2012: Poland vs Greece Group A – Match Preview

So it begins, another whirlwind of shattered expectations, dull predictability and tears from everyone involved, but enough about my prowess in the bedroom and lets get down to the curtain raiser of Euro 2012.

Europe’s biggest International football tournament kicks off later today an of course features co-hosts Poland, who take an impressive form book into the opening tie against Greece, whose shock victory in 2004 is what seems to elevate them in every ones estimations about this tournament.

Poland have won their last 3 games whilst conceding no goals in the process, whilst Greece have been struggling with only one win in five.

Therefore it looks likely that Poland will, in their home country at their home tournament, take the spoils of this opening fixture in possibly the least glamorous of the Euro 2012 groups.

However it would be foolish in a cup competition to write a team off, especially considering Greece
