Thomas Rhett Drops Brand New Single and Name-Drops Many Country Classics [LISTEN]
Country music superstar Thomas Rhett has released a brand new single called "What's Your Country Song" and it serves as the first release from new music we're expecting at some point in the future from Rhett.
"What's Your County Song" was written by Thomas Rhett, his dad Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Parker Welling, and is an anthem for country music fans of all ages.
The song name-drops many country classics, and even manages to tip the hat to a recent hit or two from this decade.
"Did you grow up on a tractor?
Did your daddy let you drive?
Are you whiskey bent and hell bound
Even though your mama tried?
Did you cruise down a backroad
With your dixieland delight?
Are you on the chattahoochee
On a barefoot blue jean night?"
The coolest part of the song might be when Thomas name-drops his dad's 90s country classic, "That Ain't My Truck."
"Do your exes live in Texas?
Are you so lonesome you could cry?
Are you heartbroke 'cause you know
That ain't your truck in her drive?
Are your friends all in low places
Underneath the neon moon?
Are you already country
Back when country wasn't cool?"
