Thomas Rhett delivers the heart-racing official music video for “Slow Down Summer” via The Valory Music Co. on YouTube and CMT. The video made its broadcast premiere on CMT, CMT Music and ViacomCBS Times Square Billboards and is available to watch digitally.
Directed by P. Tracy, the music video bursts with technicolor as it follows the pulsating journey of a young couple. Thomas Rhett dials up a powerful piano-driven performance alongside gripping flashbacks as the inevitable change in seasons morphs into a crushing reality — ultimately sealing the couple’s fate.
“Slow Down Summer” serves as the first taste of Rhett’s sixth studio album Where We Started to be released early 2022 and has quickly ascended into the Top 30 at country radio. The music follows Country Again: Side A — a creative milestone, highlighting the star’s personal roots and unique song craft. The album earned Rhett’s 18th career No. 1 with back-to-back chart-toppers, while the title track is recognized with a Best Country Song nomination at The 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
