Rhett experiences "Crash And Burn"

Friday, June 5, 2015 – Thomas Rhett time hops in the video for his new single "Crash And Burn," out today exclusively on People.com.

CMT's Hot 20 Countdown will air the broadcast debut tomorrow, starting at 8 a.m. central. Fans will also be able to view the new video across all of CMT's platforms including CMT.com, the CMT Artists app, CMT Pure and it will be available at all other digital partners on Monday.

Directed by TK McKamy, "Crash And Burn" video captures the paradox of the song's desolate lyrics and groove. Rhett takes to the streets of downtown Nashville with a vintage boombox and classic convertible, after his love life makes a downward spiral.

"It was cool to shoot this video at some of my old stomping grounds from college," said Thomas Rhett. "I think any guy can relate to the scenes in this video...we've all been in this guy's shoes trying to do whatever it takes to win back a girl."

"Crash And Burn" is the lead single from Rhett's upcoming sophomore release on The Valory Music Co. His debut album , "It Goes Like This," enjoyed three consecutive number one hits, making him Billboard's first male country artist to do so from a debut album in over two decades. The most recent chart topper was the Gold certified "Make Me Wanna." Rhett went Platinum with "Get Me Some Of That" and had 2 top 15 hits, "Beer With Jesus" and "Something To Do With My Hands."

Tangled Up CD review - Tangled Up
Thomas Rhett picks up where he left off on his 2013 debut, "It Goes Like This," which netted three chart toppers. Rhett would be hard to categorize as country, although in the big tent philosophy of what passes these days, country serves more as a marketing niche. He's more soul, funk and hip hop than country.
