My first class on Tuesday and Thursday is first thing in the morning at 9:15 in the. As I walk to class from my dorm across campus I played Thomas Rhett’s song, “I Feel Good.” This new, hot, and up-coming 25-year-old country singer and songwriter, Thomas Rhett Atkins Junior. Most people don’t know this but Rhett is the son of one of the most well-known country singer and songwriter’s, Rhett Atkins. He attended Lipscomb University in Nashville but left college when he was 20 years-old in-order to pursue his music career. One night when he was playing, Big Machine Records (a music label in Nashville who is known for working with Taylor Swift) asked him to sign with the label to write songs for them.
In 2012, Rhett released his first single “Something to Do With My Hands” and in 2013 he released “Beer with Jesus.” Rhett began co-writing more songs with Aldean, Lee Brice, and Florida Georgia Line. Rhett’s singles hit the charts and then he released his album, It Goes Like This, on October 29. Rhett’s album, Tangled Up was released in 2015 and his song “Die A Happy Man” became very popular.
Rhett said in his interview, this song is about him going back to sixth grade and riding in his mom’s Ford Explorer and also having a perfect day. Rhett said he pictures someone just giving high-fives, a woman handing him a bagel since she likes you, and just a day where nothing is going wrong and not caring about anything.
Let’s have a good day everyone,
