THOMAS RHETT has reached the pinnacle as a performer. From appearing on Saturday Night Live to holding court as reigning ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year following up with Male Artist of the Year at the awards this month. After keeping up with the velocity of a whirlwind career, Thomas Rhett’s journey continues with the release of part one of his fifth studio double album: COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A.
“Country Again: Side A is everything I wanted to say when I was 19 years old, but hadn’t lived enough to know how to say any of those things yet,” Thomas Rhett shared. “It’s about the crazy journey that took me out into the world over the last ten years and ultimately brought me back home, more centered and content than ever, with a deep understanding for what’s important in life. I’ve had a blast sharing some of these songs in their acoustic form during quarantine and am blown away by the reaction the fans have already shown.”
With SIDE B planned for release later this year, COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A is entirely co-written by Thomas Rhett and is the result of a return to his initial inspirations as a young songwriter with a new perspective that comes from the challenges of 2020 and life in-between. It’s a musical and thematic return to his roots for Thomas Rhett, an embrace of the sounds, stories, and methods that drew the superstar singer-songwriter to Country music, yet required ten years of life experiences to have the perspective to write them. From the introspective title to track to personal moments like “To The Guys That Date My Girls,” a heart-stopping ode to his daughters and the rawness of grappling with the death of a close friend on “Heaven Right Now,” Thomas Rhett reaches new creative heights blending his penchant for authentic songwriting and current state of mind.
