UNCASVILLE, CT (June 12, 2023) – On Friday, June 9th, Mohegan Sun honored multi-platinum Country artist Thomas Rhett as the 39th Walk of Fame inductee, ahead of his back-to-back sold-out shows at Mohegan Sun Arena. Tom Cantone, President of Sports and Entertainment at Mohegan, presented the chart-topping artist with the Walk of Fame star.
“We’re proud to make Thomas Rhett the latest member of Mohegan Sun’s Walk of Fame. Thomas Rhett started in our Wolf Den over 10 years ago, and has sold out six consecutive shows since,” Cantone said before introducing Rhett amongst an eruption of cheers and applause.
Thomas Rhett accepted the award in front of a large crowd of his most dedicated fans.
“This is a huge honor for me,” Thomas Rhett told the crowd after accepting the award. “Mohegan Sun Arena has been a second home to me since I was about 21 years old. I appreciate all my fans in the Northeast, especially those at Mohegan Sun Arena who have supported my music since the beginning.”
Thomas Rhett performed in front of two consecutive sold-out crowds on Friday and Saturday evening as part of his Home Team Tour 23, with Cole Swindell and Nate Smith as show openers. These were Rhett’s fifth and sixth sold-out shows at Mohegan Sun Arena since first playing in 2010.
