Rhett feeling it for "Sixteen"
Monday, September 17, 2018
– Thomas Rhett is releasing "Sixteen" as his new single.
Penned by Rhett, Sean Douglas and Joe Spargur, the song follows four RIAA PLATINUM-certified number one hits including "Craving You," "Marry Me," "Unforgettable" and "Life Changes" from his PLATINUM-certified album "Life Changes."
"When you're a kid, you can't wait to grow up and reach that next milestone," Rhett said. "But as you get older, you look back and think about how much fun you had at 16, 18 or 21. This song is a reminder to live in the moment and just soak up where you're at in life."
Rhett returned to the road last weekend on his Life Changes Tour with sold-out shows in Bangor, Maine and Uncasville, Ct.

The best song is also a love song - to a truck - titled "That Old Truck." It's the kind of song that only makes sense within country music circles. ...
Thomas Rhett references mangoritas, Coldplay and verified Instagram accounts on his third album, and for some, that may be a deal-breaker. His ultra-contemporary style and pop culture smarts may be anathema for fans of traditional country. However, writing Rhett off by stamping a cowboy boot and hollering "That ain't country!" writes off some truly standout songs - created by combining the best elements of country and pop music. Take the sophisticated songwriting of country and the ...
