Thomas Rhett‘s new album, Tangled Up, will be released this Friday, September 25th, and fans and artists alike are eagerly awaiting the moment the album appears on iTunes. While the music we have heard off the new album thus far (“Crash and Burn,” “Vacation,” and “Die a Happy Man”) has proven the record will do anything but crash and burn, T-Rhett was still a little nervous about the release.
Thomas recently explained to CMT:
I’ve called every advisor and idol that I know. I was actually talking to Luke [Bryan] on the phone the other day, and Luke was like, “Man, did you have a good time in the studio recording it? … Did you have a good time playing them live? … Do most people love it?”
And when Thomas replied “yes” to each of Luke’s questions, his mentor replied with “well, then, what are you worried about!?” From that point on, Thomas let the nerves dissipate and he allowed the feelings of excitement take over.
I was just most pumped that I had such a blast making an album. We just went in there and did really whatever we wanted to do. As much as we talked about … my generation living in a somewhat of a playlist kind of a lifestyle, it’s also very melodic. I think when anyone has a melody that’s not complicated, people really thrive on that. Some of the other songs on the record that no one’s heard yet, they’re just very melodic. They’re easy to sing along to. They’re fun to sing along to. I make music is to put a smile on somebody’s face, so if I can do that with my music, then I think we’re winning.
Come Friday, Thomas will, indeed, be winning when Tangled Up is released and fans can finally have the type of musical fun he is striving to provide. To sneak peek some of the tracks off the album before its release, visit CMT.com.
