Rhett tries to "Remember You Young"
Friday, April 19, 2019
– Thomas Rhett released another song - "Remember You Young" - today off his forthcoming release, "Center Point Road."
The song is a reflection of childhood friends, marriage and children. Rhett once again teamed up with collaborators Jesse Frasure and Ashley Gorley ("Unforgettable, "Marry Me, "Life Changes").
Rhett previously released the hit single "What God Gave Her," "Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time" featuring Little Big Town and "That Old Truck."
"We wrote this song about the people in life that we love, and always remembering them in their youth no matter how much time passes and we all change," Rhett said. "There's something sentimental about remembering your very best friends who have real jobs and families now tearing it up in college, or picturing me and my wife with no cares at the Tin Roof back in Knoxville. I love that the last verse is a bit of twist with it all coming full circle. It actually makes me emotional...it's easily one of my favorite tracks on the album.
The upcoming album is the follow-up to "Life Changes," which received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Album. On May 17, Rhett kicks off his Very Hot Summer Tour in Spokane, Wash.

Thomas Rhett represents a dilemma for traditional country music fans. Namely, that he doesn't create much country music that appeals to traditional tastes. Although "Center Point Road" doesn't entirely reverse that trend, even during its most overtly pop moments, this new collection of songs is still a pretty good one.
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 ...
