Thomas Rhett Details New Album ‘Center Point Road,’ Featuring Duets With Jon Pardi & Kelsea Ballerini

Thomas Rhett has a new album on the way and, although we know Thomas can write and record a damn good country song, we’re going to have to wait and see just exactly what he cooks up. Inspired by his hometown, Center Point Road appears to be quite the mish-mash of musical styles and influences.

“For me, Center Point Road really symbolizes what it was like to grow up in Hendersonville,” says Rhett. “First dates, first football games, first heartbreak, first kisses, success and failures. I really feel like that road shaped who I am today, and it felt fitting because the record, for the most part, is pretty nostalgic. Songs like ‘Almost,’ ‘That Old Truck’ and especially ‘Center Point Road,’ really describe who I was as a kid and teenager, and who I’ve become as an adult.”

While the first two singles leave something to be desired for the average country music fan, this new album will embrace what they’re calling “bold unpredictability,” AKA Thomas Rhett’s signature sound. It’s “hot-blooded R&B meets brassy, shag-carpeted funk, danceable disco and breezy beachside soul, joining classic balladry, new school honky-tonk and above all, twangy authenticity.”

Huh?

Center Point Road is set to drop on May 31st, with pre-order beginning tomorrow, March 29th.
