Thomas Rhett, Katy Perry reflect on ‘Where We Started’

New single & video available now

Thomas Rhett and Katy Perry release the music video for their duet “Where We Started.” Directed by Patrick Tracy, the video for the title track from Rhett’s sixth studio album finds each artist contently reflecting on their own journeys.

“Working with Katy has been a really collaborative process,” Rhett shares. “From tracking the song in the studio, to performing on it American Idol, to this video – her input has made this whole experience really special for me.”

“I loved being able to create a dreamy world for ‘Where We Started,’ going back to the Nashville singer-songwriter roots of where I started,” Perry adds.

Ten years after signing his record deal with Big Machine Label Group’s The Valory Music Co., arena-packing superstar Thomas Rhett has 19 multi-Platinum and Gold-certified No. 1 hits, 12 billion streams and the longest current active streak of consecutive No. 1s in the format on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart. The superstar’s critically-acclaimed sixth studio album is available now, with single “Half of Me,” featuring Riley Green, currently Top 5 bound at country radio. Inspired by family, friends and his love of the outdoors, Rhett is also the cofounder of Dos Primos Tequila and is collaborating with Chaco on an exclusive sandal line. He just wrapped his headlining Bring The Bar To You Tour.

Katy Perry has racked up a cumulative 65 billion streams alongside worldwide sales of over 57 million adjusted albums and 138 million tracks. Her summer 2019 single, “Never Really Over,” off her album Smile was the biggest streaming launch of the superstar’s musical career. Views of her videos “Roar” and “Dark Horse” have each surpassed three billion views – making her the first and only female artist to reach this milestone. She is one of only five artists in history to have topped 100 million certified units with their digital singles – and the first-ever Capitol Records artist to join the RIAA 100 Million Certified Songs club. Perry is currently performing her Las Vegas residency, Play and can be heard narrating Elizabeth the First, a 10-episode podcast series about Elizabeth Taylor as the original influencer.
