While quarantined at home, Thomas Rhett has spent some of his time working on new music and sharing it with fans. Over the weekend, Rhett debuted a new song titled "What's Your Country Song?" on Instagram.
"Everybody's been playing new songs during this quarantine, so I figured I'd play you a brand new one," he told fans in the video.
Strumming his acoustic guitar, Rhett began to sing the new song which asks listeners to share what songs shaped them throughout their life. The track references classics such as Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried," Alan Jackson's "Drive" and "Chattahoochee," and George Strait's "All My Exes Live in Texas." The sons also includes a nod to more modern hits like Jake Owen's "Barefoot Blue Jean Night."
"Everybody got a small town anthem/Everybody got a story to tell/When you're rollin down a two-lane highway/And you turn your radio on/Tell me which one hits you baby/What's your country song," Rhett sings from his home office.
Take a listen to the new song in the video below.
Rhett is quarantining at home with his wife Lauren Akins and their three daughters, Willa Gray, Ada James and Lennon Love. While the country star seems to be enjoying the extra time with his family at home, he's also making the most of it musically.
Last month, Rhett released an uplifting new song, "Be A Light" featuring Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott and Chris Tomlin. The song, written by Rhett alongside Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem, offers a message of hope and encouragement in these difficult times.
Proceeds from "Be A Light" sales go to benefit the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. This fund goes towards members of the music industry who are currently suffering from the coronavirus and those out of work due to the pandemic.
