The Sophomore Album Delivers A Rule-Bending Signature Thomas Rhett Sound
Nashville, TN – August 3, 2015 - Multi-PLATINUM selling Thomas
Rhett spent his childhood listening to the sounds of the FM radio. He
would regularly flip from one station to another, cranking up a mix of
country, pop, R&B, rap, rock, and oldies. It was a tangle of music.
Decades later, he's tipping his hat to those days with TANGLED UP (The Valory Music Co.) out Sept. 25, an album that mixes the sound of his influences with equal doses of groove, melody and twang.
"I didn't grow up listening to just one style of music," shares
Thomas Rhett. "So, I don't know how to write just one style of music.
Whether these songs have more of a pop influence or more of a hip-hop
influence or a completely country influence, they all — in some crazy
way — cohesively sound like a me song."
Produced by a combination of music’s most respected and fresh
talent, the 13-track album is filled with party anthems, dance tunes,
drinking songs, love ballads, and everything in between, all tied
together by a dynamic singer who's unafraid to blur the lines between
genres. The record was written across the country before and after
shows, while Thomas Rhett’s body was still flushed with adrenaline.
"At our shows, there aren't any rules,” Thomas Rhett continues.
"There's no such thing as standing still and just singing a song. I love
jumping into the crowd. I love to dance. The whole show is very
uptempo, high energy, and completely unpredictable.”
Maybe that’s why TANGLED UP feels like such an upbeat, energetic record. Its "retro, contemporary and edgy” (Billboard)
first single "Crash And Burn” has already climbed into the Top 10 and
earned GOLD certification long before the album's release.
