NASHVILLE, TN (May 17, 2021) – MULTI-PLATINUM selling entertainer Thomas Rhett is relishing his return to the stage alongside the recently-released first part of his fifth studio double album COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A (The Valory Music Co.), just wrapping two back-to-back sold out weekends at Billy Bob’s in Texas. With palpable emotion and blistering energy throughout the iconic venue, the 8X ACM Award winner hosted a string of capacity fans already singing back every word to brand new music as Billboard predicted, “will play well to the sprawling audiences he now garners.”
Co-written entirely by Thomas Rhett, COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A is chock-full of “intimate retrospectives” (American Songwriter), with widespread critical acclaim mirroring fan enthusiasm.
“Rhett is the most reliable maker of No. 1 songs in country music right now…he’ll be providing radio probably several years’ worth of chart-topper material” – Variety
“It brims with the sort of self-revealing songs that have turned him into a superstar” – PEOPLE
“Songs like ‘Want It Again,’ ‘Where We Grew Up’ and ‘More Time Fishin’ reminiscing on Rhett’s upbringing while possessing the type of hooks that will play well to the sprawling audiences he now garners” – Billboard
“Listeners hear Rhett’s thematic return to roots throughout ‘Side A.’” – Tennessean
“Rhett is also singing and writing from a more grounded, mature place as a family man with a wife and three children. There’s contentment and wisdom in the dreamy, Tears for Fears sounds of “Growing Up” – Rolling Stone
With COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE B planned for release later this year, Thomas Rhett recently announced his headlining THE CENTER POINT ROAD TOUR, kicking-off on August 13 with back-to-back nights in Orange Beach, AL.
