Nelly Covers Thomas Rhett’s “Die a Happy Man”


You know how sometimes you are stuck in a mental pickle about whether you like something or not? That’s how I felt this morning when I heard Nelly‘s country grammar’ified version of Thomas Rhett‘s most recent Number 1 hit, “Die a Happy Man“. Envision an R&B back beat on a beautiful ballad, coupled with some of Nelly’s signature “uh’s”, and that’s what you have with this cover.

Did I make that sound awful? Because I assure you it’s not awful. It also isn’t the same love song you requested to the top of the charts, and it may not be for everyone.

So, why would Nelly even touch this country song, or a country song at all for that matter?

Rumors circulated awhile back that Nelly was going to make the official move into country music (following collaborations with Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line), but the fruits of that labor are yet to be seen. However, with his new cover of T. Rhett’s tune, it is now making people wonder if Nelly is about to make Nashville all sorts of hot in herre.

Stay tuned here on NashvilleGab for the audio of Nelly’s version of “Die a Happy Man”. We are currently trying to get our eager little hands on this track!
