In Addition to Maren Morris Duet, Thomas Rhett Says Upcoming Album Features Collaborations With Selena Gomez and His Dad, Rhett Akins

On March 31, Thomas Rhett released the lead single, “Craving You,” from his upcoming third studio album. The new single, which was co-written by TR, Julian Bunetta and Dave Barnes, features vocals from Maren Morris. But that’s not the only collaboration on the upcoming album.

Yesterday (March 31) during a Q/A session at an Outnumber Hunger event, TR told emcee Alecia Davis that his new album also features collaborations with acress/singer Selena Gomez and his father, Rhett Akins.

“I’ve never written more than I’ve written in the last year, and so we had lots of songs to pick from,” said Thomas Rhett. “So the tough part is going to be narrowing them down for the album. My dad is featured on a song, which is pretty cool. I’m trying to be solely responsible for reviving his artistry career [laughing] . . . we have this girl named Selena Gomez sing on a song on the record and she’s pretty cool. I promise you, if I could collaborate on every song, I would. I love doing songs with different people and doing songs with friends. It’s a very all-over-the-place record, that’s for sure. There’s songs on there about kinda finding out I’m going to be a dad of two, there’s love songs on there. There’s songs that are too crazy for anybody to ever play, but I think that’s what I’m good at.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
