Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins to host ABC’s CMA Country Christmas on Nov 30th
ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Thomas Rhett has unveiled the official music video for his new single “What’s Your Country Song” via The Valory Music Co. on YouTube. Directed by longtime collaborator TK McKamy, the video is a universal celebration of roots, encapsulating the spirit of the song’s lyrics as Rhett “tips his hat to heroes and friends” (ABC.com). Written by Thomas Rhett alongside Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Parker Welling, “What’s Your Country Song” is the follow-up to 16 career No. 1’s and is available at country radio now.
“The lyrics of this song stir up so many vivid memories for me; I think everyone has that one song that takes them back to a specific moment in time,” Thomas Rhett shares. “I wanted the music video to visually capture that same thing and instantly transport anyone watching back to that familiar feeling or place in their mind.”
Earlier this week, Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America to reveal they are making their hosting debut together during the 11th Annual CMA Country Christmas. Thomas Rhett is also performing during the annual music celebration set for Monday, November 30th on ABC at 9 pm ET/PT.
Thomas Rhett’s most recent release, his GRAMMY-nominated fourth studio album Center Point Road continued to propel his meteoric career as “few singers have played a larger role in defining the sound of country music over the past half-dozen years” (Rolling Stone), debuting atop the Billboard 200 and spawning three No. 1 hits including its platinum lead single, “Look What God Gave Her,” which was first introduced on SNL. Rhett has scored nearly 10 billion total career streams and received two CMA Triple Play awards for penning three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period, adding to his collection of trophies from the Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, Billboard Music Awards, CMT Music Awards and more.
