Thomas Rhett Says Adopted Daughter Willa Feels At Home

Willa Rhett was born in Africa.

(Undated)  --  Thomas Rhett says his adopted daughter, Willa, feels at home in Tennessee despite being born thousands of miles away. 

The country music hit-maker tells "People" magazine Willa's birthplace in Uganda is as country as it gets, filled with corn, bean and chicken farms. 

He says Willa is right at home on their 125-acre farm outside of Nashville where both of his daughters spend most of their time. 

Willa was adopted from Masindi last year, shortly before Thomas' wife, Lauren, gave birth to their other daughter, Ada.
