Original track appears on Where We Started

On the heels of notching his 20th chart-topping hit in less than 10 years, country superstar Thomas Rhett releases “Angels Don’t Always Have Wings” as his next single, out now. Previously titled “Angels,” the track first appeared on Rhett’s most recent album Where We Started, released last year via The Valory Music Co., and was written by Rhett, Julian Bunetta, Jaten Dimsdale and Josh Thompson. Featuring Thomas Rhett’s signature rich vocals and a heartfelt melody, the song celebrates unconditional, patient love.

“This is my favorite song from the album. I wrote it from a personal perspective, but I think it will resonate with a lot of people,” Rhett shares. “It’s about how none of us are perfect, and how lucky we are to have those people in our lives who show up and love us despite our flaws. I often look at my wife and think she’s truly an angel, for the love and grace she shows me every single day.”

Rhett is currently gearing up for the Canadian extension of his Bring The Bar To You Tour with Jordan Davis and Kameron Marlowe, kicking off on February 9th in Vancouver.
