"This one right here just about sums it up. Thanks so much babe for being my rock and for loving me so good. You are my favorite person on the planet," Rhett wrote before joking, "Now I'm gonna quit posting for a month. Peace!!!"

Rhett also gave his wife a shoutout during Saturday's show, telling her, "I think we've made it." Akins was in the audience along with the couple's daughters, who received their own serenade from the crowd during their dad's hit "Life Changes," which mentions the girls. Rhett also performed a new song he wrote just around one month ago titled "To the Guys That Date My Girls," which includes the line, "When you pull her close/ Make sure to leave some room for Jesus/ If you ever cross that line I swear/ Boy you’re gonna need him."

Willa Gray and Ada James will become big sisters when Rhett and Akins welcome their third daughter, with Rhett revealing during the concert that the upcoming arrival is expected in February.

The couple announced Akins' pregnancy in July, with Rhett sharing a family photo and a snap from the gender reveal, which took place with a puff of pink smoke.


"Excited to share that I will now be paying for 3 weddings," he joked in his caption. "I feel so blessed to say that our third child is on the way and it’s a girl!! I love you so much @laur_akins. WG and AJ, y’all are gonna be the best big sisters! Bring on the crazy."
