Illness forces Thomas Rhett to scrap dates

New dad Thomas Rhett has scrapped three upcoming shows after falling ill.

Dates in Minnesota, South Dakota and Nebraska, set for this week (26-28Oct17) have been rescheduled to allow the country star to take a little time to get well.

Busy Rhett welcomed two kids into his family in 2017 - an adopted toddler from Uganda and a biological baby girl - and he has been out on the road for much of the year, promoting his new album appropriately titled Life Changes.

Details of his illness have not been revealed.
