Thomas Rhett Leaves 2020 Behind, But Takes Some Lessons From It Into 2021

Thomas Rhett Leaves 2020 Behind, But Takes Some Lessons From It Into 2021

We did it!

We made it 2021!

While there are plenty of people very happy the new year is here, and we can leave 2020 in the dust, some have value lessons that they’ll be carrying from last year to the next.

Thomas Rhett says, “You know, 2020 has definitely been hard in many ways, especially for a lot of different families who have either lost work or people that have been on the front lines working in hospitals, or teachers trying to teach three year olds how to learn their letters and their numbers.”

But for Thomas and his family, much like others, it wasn’t all doom and gloom, “For us, I think 2020 has had several silver linings, and for me, I think I was going at such a rapid pace that 2020 definitely forced me to slow down.”

Being in quarantine, people used 2020 to reconnect with loved ones, and for music artists like Thomas, this was for the first year in a long time where their schedule wasn’t wall to wall hecticness, something that Thomas will try to carry forward, “I hope I can take that mindset back into 2021.”

Thomas, along with many, many fans and other music artists, hope 2021 is the year that we can all get back to going to concerts and have a live in-person shared musical experience again.

Until then, you can still enjoy Thomas’ latest hit, here’s “What’s Your Country Song.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
