Platinum-selling rising star Thomas Rhett has announced that his sophomore album Tangled Up is slated for a September 25th release on Valory Music Co. Lead single “Crash And Burn,” already a top digital download and smoking up the country radio charts, sets the pace for his second album and sets Thomas Rhett apart from the rest of the pack. Billboard notes “if it’s possible to be retro, contemporary and edgy in the context of a lone country single, Thomas Rhett does that with ‘Crash And Burn.’”
“This album is something we’ve been working on for two years and musically, it really pulls from all the things I have been inspired by during that time,” says Thomas Rhett. “The title Tangled Up comes from a lyric in one of the new songs, and I think it’s a cool way to point to all the different influences that I have as an artist and a songwriter – from soul and r&b to old school country to rock and everything in between. They are all in this record!”
To help celebrate his fans and bring them into the album process, Rhett is asking fans to help choose the disc’s cover art. Four designs have been posted on ThomasRhett.com and the winning cover will be revealed in the coming weeks.
The CMA and ACM nominee established himself as one of Country music’s elite new artists with his debut album It Goes Like This (The Valory Music Co.), which spawned three consecutive #1 hits, making him Billboard’s first male country artist to do so from a debut album in over two decades. The most recent #1 Gold-certified “Make Me Wanna,” showcases Thomas Rhett’s trademark swagger and was named Billboard’s “Best Country Songs of 2014.” “At the forefront of young Country singers” (Tampa Bay Times), Thomas Rhett initially garnered attention as a gifted songwriter with credits including hits by Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean and Lee Brice and his “high-energy all the way” (El Paso Times) live show continues to catch attention of critics out on the road. He is currently direct support for Florida Georgia Line’s Anything Goes Tour 2015 this year.
