Our latest installment of Big Country Covers features Thomas Rhett live in concert. Watch the crowd join in and go wild for his rendition of Bruno Mars' 'Uptown Funk'.

We're seeing a lot of Country stars who cover top 40 songs in concert - we have a whole series here at Big Country 96.9. It's smart because Country fans are also fans of pop. If it's done well - and Rhett does it well - it can move any crowd (as you see in this video).

Thomas has a strong Country background - his dad is the famous Rhett Akins - 'That Ain't My Truck' & "Don't Get Me Started' are two of his big hits.

There doesn't seem to be any connection with Bruno Mars and Thomas Rhett other than 'Uptown Funk' (Thomas also does a cover of 'When I Was Your Man' - we will feature that song in an upcoming installment of Big Country Covers).
