NEW ALBUM: THOMAS RHETT | WHERE WE STARTED
Hot on the heels of last year’s stripped-back, organic-sounding "Country Again" project Thomas Rhett has released his new album, "Where We Started." Produced by Dann Huff and co-producers Jesse Frasure and Matt Dragstrem, "Where We Started" features 15 songs, all co-written by Thomas Rhett except for one, the opening track “The Hill,” penned by Lori McKenna, Jordan Reynolds, and Emily Weisband. “This album for me is one that I’ve had on repeat,” said Rhett in the trailer for Where We Started. “Some of my favourite songs I’ve ever got to be a part of are on this album.”The new album will position Rhett front and centre in the Country world as an artist of actual worth with its meaningful lyrics and catchy, infectious melodies. It’s his sixth album, and it really demonstrates an artist at the height of his creative peak. Although after Thomas Rhett released "Country Again: A" in the Spring of 2021, he had plans to take the next natural step by releasing "Country Again: Side B," however, things don’t always go as planned. Rhett found himself at a crossroads in late 2021, with between 150 and 200 songs under his belt for his next album. He had just co-written a special track called “Where We Started” and quickly realized his plans for "Country Again: Side B" would have to be sidelined. Rhett got with his team when he realized he was ultimately writing for an entirely separate album. They decided to release "Where We Started" and hold off on "Country Again: Side B." Ahead of the release of "Where We Started," Rhett shared a few new tracks, “Angels” and “Church Boots,” further amplifying the excitement for the record.
