Center Point Road album due May 31st
With 12 No. Ones to his name and a reputation as one of country’s most boldly unpredictable stars, multi-platinum selling performer Thomas Rhett returns with the kinetic romance of his brand new single, “Look What God Gave Her.” “On a rare trajectory” (Variety), Thomas Rhett is set to debut “Look What God Gave Her” and more hotly-anticipated new music this weekend on NBC’s Saturday Night Live (March 2nd at 10:30 pm CT), making him the first country artist of the show’s current season. Leading into the performance, fans can pre-order his highly anticipated upcoming fourth studio album Center Point Road, before its May 31st release on The Valory Music Co.
“I think I played this song 2,000 times in a month after we first wrote it,” states Rhett. “It makes me want to dance. It makes me want to move. And to me, the song really is a celebration of how awesome my wife is. I know I’ve done that in the past, but I’ve never really done it in an uptempo way.”
Serving as the first taste of what’s to come, Thomas Rhett describes the irresistibly uptempo jam as “the perfect song to take fans into summer” – and also the perfect track to introduce his next project. Featuring a daring electro-country sound, stunning harmony stacks and a smooth talking vocal hook, Thomas Rhett co-wrote the infectious standout alongside his hit-making father, Rhett Akins as well as Julian Bunetta, John Ryan and J Cash.
“I was really glad we were able to nail this one,” Rhett adds. “My wife is so beautiful, but at the same time she’s inwardly beautiful, she’s funny, she’s kind, she’s the best mom I know…and she’s hilarious. It’s really just about thanking God for the human being He made, and singing it in a fun way.”
Rhett co-produced “Look What God Gave Her” with Bunetta and Dann Huff, both of whom are longtime collaborators with producer credits on his previous two albums – platinum-certified Life Changes and Tangled Up. More details about Thomas Rhett’s fourth studio album, named after the street in his Tennessee hometown that shaped and influenced much of his life experiences, will be revealed soon, with country radio’s most-played artist of 2018 hinting that it will find him “getting back to his roots.”
Described by Forbes as a “talented performer, songwriter and all-around star,” Thomas Rhett will wrap up his successful Life Changes Tour this spring with a coast-to-coast series of shows in Canada. Then on May 17th in Spokane, WA, the celebrated entertainer will kick off his headlining Very Hot Summer Tour, visiting 40 stops across the nation with Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson and Rhett Akins opening select dates.
