Inside Track on Music Row | February 2021


Thirsty?  On January 11, Thomas Rhett and his cousin, pecan magnate Jeff Worn, launched their new ultra-premium tequila brand, Dos Primos. Spanish for “Two Cousins,” Dos Primos is a blanco tequila made from hand-harvested 100% Blue Agave sourced from estates in Los Altos and the valley area of Jalisco, Mexico.  Rhett, the reigning ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year, explained, “Our decision to create a new tequila brand grew out of just loving being with family. Jeff and I wanted to create a tequila that was expertly crafted and could be enjoyed year-round – regardless of the season or activity – with the people we care about most. Dos Primos is all about who we are and what’s important to us.” More at
