Thomas Rhett’s “Craving You” might still be hovering near the top of Billboard’s Country chart, but the Nashville native isn’t looking back. Friday, Rhett released his next single, “Unforgettable.” Both songs will appear on Rhett’s third studio album, which is scheduled for release on Sept 8th.
“Unforgettable” examines each day of a new relationship through the perspective of the relationship as time goes on. It’s representative of all of the changes in Rhett’s own life, which the singer discussed within an interview with Rolling Stone Country in March.
“I would say [Life Changes] completely sums up the journey of my life right now,” Rhett said. “You think you have it all figured out and all of a sudden you wake up and you’re having a baby. So many things are changing as far as going from a [show] opener to a headliner – there are a lot of firsts for us this year – and there’s a couple of songs on the album that sum it up, but I would say that one line represents life as a whole for me right now.”
“Unforgettable” was written by Rhett, with Jesse Frasure (co-writer of Jon Pardi’s “Dirt on My Boots”), Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally (both of whom co-wrote Sam Hunt’s current Number One, “Body Like a Back Road”). Rhett’s second album Tangled Up was certified Platinum in September 2016, led by the triple-Platinum single “Die a happy Man.”
Rhett continues his summer tour through the end of July along with guests Walker Hayes, Old Dominion and Dan & Shay. He returns mid-August with dates on both the East and West Coasts before wrapping up with five UK tour dates in November.
