EDITORS’ NOTES

Singer-songwriter Thomas Rhett’s third album, Life Changes, is a nostalgic, sunny slice of Nashville country with sharp pop instincts and a few charmingly rough edges. With spit-shined modern production, “Craving You,” his duet with Maren Morris, almost resembles a dance track. And that studio gloss makes others like “Unforgettable” and “Smooth Like the Summer” more than just flirty bops. But there’s still plenty of room for the good ol’ boy to be a good ol’ boy: The wistful “Sixteen” references his F-150 pickup, and “Drink a Little Beer” (on which Rhett is assisted by his father, Rhett Akins) speaks for itself.

The Sturgill and Isbell Fan Clubs Are Out!

Typical "traditionalists" out here ripping on one of musics most creative songwriters in Thomas Rhett. If it wasnt good music, country fans wouldn't continue paying their hard earned money for it--causing it to outsell all of your precious little old school acts. Truth is, if those acts had it in them to be mega stars, they would be. They just latch on to the silly "that ain't country" cliche because it's all they have left. More great music from TR...now excuse me while I crank my playlist of Stapleton, Kip Moore, Thomas Rhett, Sam Hunt and other GREAT music...regardless of sub-genre. Get your undies untangled and move on with your life and all of your bitter anger towards great artists. 😎

About Thomas Rhett

Georgia-born singer/songwriter Thomas Rhett, the son of award-winning country crooner Rhett Akins, didn't seriously start considering following in his father's footsteps until his senior year in high school. Raised on a steady diet of Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones, Rhett inked a publishing deal with EMI just two years into his college career, and landed a song ("I Ain't Ready to Quit") on fellow country-rocker Jason Aldean's 2010 release, My Kind of Party. Like Aldean, Brantley Gilbert, and Justin Moore, Rhett splits the difference between slick contemporary country and rowdy good-time rock & roll, an equation he put to the test on his 2011 debut single, "Something to Do with My Hands." A self-titled EP appeared early in 2013, and later that year his debut full-length, It Goes Like This, arrived. The album reached number six on the Billboard 200 and the Top 30 in Canada on the strength of the Top Ten Country hit singles "It Goes Like This," "Get Me Some of That," and "Make Me Wanna," all of which topped Billboard's Country Airplay chart.

Led by the single "Crash and Burn," which reached number one on Billboard's Country Airplay chart and number two on the Hot Country chart, Rhett's sophomore album, Tangled Up, appeared in September 2015. A second number one smash, "Die a Happy Man," and third single, "T-Shirt," helped turn Tangled Up into a big hit that stayed on the charts into 2016. That year, a deluxe edition of the album appeared, featuring the single "Star of the Show," which went into the Top Ten as well. In 2017, Rhett returned with his third studio-album, Life Changes, which included the single, "Craving You," featuring Maren Morris. ~ James Christopher Monger
