Rhett banks on "Angels"
Friday, January 20, 2023
– Thomas Rhett today released "Angels Don't Always Have Wings" as his next single.
Previously titled "Angels," the track first appeared on Rhett's most recent album "Where We Started" (The Valory Music Co.) and was written by Rhett, Julian Bunetta, Jaten Dimsdale and Josh Thompson.
"This is my favorite song from the album. I wrote it from a personal perspective, but I think it will resonate with a lot of people," said Rhett. "It's about how none of us are perfect, and how lucky we are to have those people in our lives who show up and love us despite our flaws. I often look at my wife and think she's truly an angel, for the love and grace she shows me every single day."

The ACM Award for Entertainer of the Year still carries a lot of weight, and Rhett nabbed it in 2019.
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. ...
