On Tuesday and Thursday’s I walk to my first class of the day at 9:15. As I walk to class from the library, I play Thomas Rhett’s song, “I Feel Good.”
This sorta-new hot, 25-year-old country singer and songwriter, Thomas Rhett Atkins Jr. (just Thomas Rhett) sings, ” I Feel Good.” Rhett is the son of well-known country singer-songwriter, Rhett Atkins. Rhett was always surrounded by country musicians and music, since his father is a country singer. He attended Lipscomb University in Nashville but dropped out when he was 20 years-old to pursue his music. When he was playing at a restaurant, 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 2010, Rhett co-wrote Jason Aldean’s song, “I Ain’t Ready to Quit” for his album, My Kinda Party. 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,
