Rhett goes on "Vacation"
Friday, August 28, 2015
– Thomas Rhett is sharing new music off his upcoming "Tangled Up" (The Valory Music Co.) by premiering a new video every Friday.
Rhett's second release comes out Sept. 25 with the Vacation video out today.
Starting today, Vevo will premiere a new video every Friday. The track is the same one fans will simultaneously receive as an instant iTunes download for pre-ordering the album.
Filmed last month during a personal vacation in Hawaii, the warm-weather "Vacation" video highlights sunny adventures and home videos with his wife Lauren and friends.
"With a little under a month until 'Tanged Up' comes out, I am pumped to start sharing some more music off this record," said Rhett. "I wanted to start with a track that just feels good and is fun, so here we go with 'Vacation.' Clearly, with lyrics like 'Billabong bikini' and 'solo cup amplifier,' the song is about having a good time, whether you actually are on vacation - like we are in the video - or just kicking back in a kiddie pool in your back yard."

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 ...
