Tuesday, October 18, 2022 – Thomas Rhett and Katy Perry today released the music video for their duet "Where We Started."
Directed by Patrick Tracy, the video is for the title track off Thomas Rhett's sixth studio album.
"Working with Katy has been a really collaborative process," said Rhett. "From tracking the song in the studio, to performing on it American Idol, to this video, her input has made this whole experience really special for me."
Perry said, "I loved being able to create a dreamy world for 'Where We Started,' going back to the Nashville singer-songwriter roots of where I started."
The current single "Half of Me," featuring Riley Green, currently is riding high on the country charts.
Perry has long enjoyed a career on the pop side. She is currently performing her Las Vegas residency, PLAY.

Still, Rhett's sound has its doubters – a lot of the air-quote country hits were grafted to other dance, pop and soul styles. ...
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. ...
