Rhett vid goes live today
Thursday, October 2, 2014
– Thomas Rhett is debuting the music video for his new single "Make Me Wanna" exclusively on People.com today.
"Making this video put me a little outside my comfort zone," said Rhett. "I wanted it to have a little swagger in a loose, fun way and reflect that sort of Bee Gees feel the song has. I've never claimed to be a dancer, but me and my band love to goof off on stage, especially to this song. I wanted the video to reflect that and let everyone know it's okay to shake your hips a little bit."
The video was directed by TK McKamy and recently shot in Nashville. "Make Me Wanna" is the new single off Rhett's debut album "It Goes Like This," (The Valory Music Co.), which has spawned two consecutive Platinum-certified number one hits. He will hit the road with Justin Moore beginning Oct. 23 in Columbia, Mo.

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 ...
