NASHVILLE, TN (March 4, 2022) – Long recognized for his “songwriting brawn” (American Songwriter) and a prolific career writing about what he knows, superstar THOMAS RHETT stretches his truthful storytelling even further today with the release of “Death Row.” Featuring Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson, the song was penned after the three visited a men’s prison in Tennessee with their guitars. Armed with a pressure cooker of emotions, Thomas Rhett wrote the sobering track of redemption alongside Ashley Gorley and Zack Crowell. Fans can now listen to the new track off WHERE WE STARTED (out April 1 via The Valory Music Co.) here and pre-order the album here.
“Tyler, Russell and I went and played some songs for a men’s prison here in Tennessee,” Thomas Rhett shared. “We left with a lot of complex feelings, so I started writing as a way to process the heaviness. Our goal was for people to understand our experience by way of music – it’s basically a page directly from our journal that day.”
