Father and son Georgia natives Thomas Rhett and Rhett Akins teamed for a concert at Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. to help raise more than $40,000 for Great Strides Valdosta in honor of their cousin Sophie, who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis.

“Cystic Fibrosis is a terrible disease, and when it happens to one of your family members it puts it that much more at the forefront of your mind and makes you want to do anything you can to help out,” said Thomas Rhett.
