Video: Thomas Rhett reveals NEW video for “Leave Right Now” Remix Featuring Martin Jensen

Thomas Rhett has released his brand new music video for Leave Right Now in collaboration with Danish DJ Martin Jensen.

The 28-year-old released the single as part of his 2017 album release Life Changes.

Speaking about working with Jensen he said: “I really love how Martin Jensen added to this track.

“He took it to a place that really made it special, so I wanted the video to reflect that energy and anticipation you feel in the song.”

Thomas Rhett A Sucker for a Good, Sad Song

CMT.comBut Then What’s With the Happy Ending?

“Marry Me” is sad enough as a song. But then the video? I can barely get one minute in — when Thomas Rhett reveals that she wants to get married, but just not to him — before the tears kick in.

So when I talked to Thomas Rhett about the video after he rehearsed his performance of the song at the ACM Awards, he told me that that reaction — a gut punch, he called it — was kind of his intention.

“I really just wanted to tell the story of what my life would’ve been like had I not had the confidence to walk up to Lauren and tell her I’ve basically been in love with her since church camp in 7th grade,” he said.

He wrote the song with Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally, and he told me they wrote it as a fantasy of the worst kind. “It’s just about me going to her wedding when she’s marrying somebody else. A pretty morbid thought,” he said, “but I’m a sucker for a good sad song.”

Some of his favorite songwriters of all time, he said, write about what they know, but also about what they pulled from their memories. “And if you can kind of go back — for me that would’ve been all through high school — I got dumped by Lauren a couple times and dated some other girls. So I know the feeling of heart break well. And so when I can write a song like that, I can go back into that part of my brain and deliver it as that person: the saddest person in the world.”

At the very end of the video, he leaves the wedding before the vows are exchanged, and he goes to drown his unrequited sorrows at a diner. And just as he starts to sip his café au whiskey, the bride shows up in the window. Her shrug is half “what have I done?” and half “where the hell were you?”

So her ambiguous appearance left me with a lot of unanswered questions, which Rhett was quick to answer.

“Oh she definitely left her fiance for good. Because if she’d left her wedding just to go say, ‘What’s up’ to him, obviously that marriage probably ain’t gonna work out,” he said. “I think they get back together in the end.”

Thomas Rhett Named Country Artist of the Year at 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Soundslikenashville.com — Thomas Rhett is no doubt becoming one of country music’s biggest superstars and his status among the elite was confirmed when he was named Country Artist of the Year for the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Beating out Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Sam Hunt, the “Marry Me” singer couldn’t believe he’d been named the winner.

“Wow, Country Artist of the Year. That is… that is insane. Thank you guys so much for voting for that and voting me in there because there was so many great country artists out there that also just deserve this completely. So I’m blown away that you have given this to me,” he said in a video acceptance speech.

After thanking the iHeartRadio team and his Valory label family, Rhett went on to thank some other special supporters in his life.

“Thank you so much to the fans, who come out to the shows and support us day in, day out,” he continued. “To my wife, who helps me pick these songs that go on the records and tells me when I’m doing something dumb in a show and I can fix it on the next one. Thank you to the Lord for allowing me to do this crazy career and this life. It’s been a real honor. Thank you guys so much. This is really cool.”

Rhett is also vying for Country Song of the Year with his smash, “Unforgettable.”

Fans tuning in to the awards show broadcast may not get a performance from the 2018 Country Artist of the Year, but they will get to see Ed Sheeran, Cardi B, Maroon 5, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth, Eminem, G-Eazy, Kehlani, and N.E.R.D. take the stage.

Interview: Thomas Talks with Taylor Magazine

Interview: Thomas Talks with Taylor Magazine

One of the biggest names in country music at the moment, Thomas Rhett is everything: husband, father, country music award-winner and headliner at massive stadiums and arenas around the world. He landed his first No.1 single in 2013 and ever since then, he’s been responsible for the most upbeat, exciting and heartstring-pulling songs for fans to listen to, and fall in love with. Over the years since he first came onto the country music scene, he’s had over eight chart-topping singles, and most recently he’s released his new album, Life Changes.

His newest album captures a whirlwind period of his life, with many new and exciting things happening for him and his family. The album was recorded while Thomas and his wife, Lauren, were in the middle of adopting their daughter Willa Gray from Uganda, and also awaiting the birth of their second child, Ada James. Thomas Rhett’s songwriting skills and soulful vocals showcase a true artist who’s willing to shine a light on his own personal milestones and mistakes through life. We’re big fans of Thomas Rhett’s music and wanted to learn more about his song-writing process, how he handles being on the road and what his proudest career moment is.

Taylor Magazine: To begin with, tell us a little bit about how you got started with music.

Thomas Rhett: Well, I grew up with a dad that sang country music so music has always been a passion and first love of mine since a young age. I’ve always been in bands – I was in a rock band in sixth grade and I did all sorts of bands through high school and college. My dad is a full-time songwriter so I got the opportunity to co-write with him and a bunch of great songwriters so I eventually learnt the craft of doing that. Midway through college, I decided that I didn’t want to do school anymore and instead, I pursued songwriting – I knew I wanted to be a writer forever and as I got going with it, I started going on the road and got addicted to the show life. Looking back, I can’t imagine doing anything different.

Taylor Magazine: When you were younger did you have anything else in mind, in case songwriting didn’t work out?

Thomas Rhett: I don’t remember – I only went to college because all of my friends did. While I was there, I was just searching for a passion studying things like business or communication. Music was all that I had, and paired with a bit of good timing and luck, I started to write songs and that was that!

Taylor Magazine: How old were you when you realised you were going to pursue music and how long did it take from there until you felt like you were on the right path?

Thomas Rhett: I think I was 19 when I first realised I was doing well and then at age 21, I signed a record deal. I don’t really know what my definition of ‘making it’ is, but I think we’re doing ok for ourselves now! I would say after the song ‘Die A Happy Man’, it definitely felt like we were on a path upwards.

Taylor Magazine: What was the most memorable concert you went to where you remember being inspired by the artist?

Thomas Rhett: My dad definitely had a lot to do with my inspiration, but my first concert was The Rolling Stones. To this day, they’re still my favourite band. I think Mick Jagger has had a lot of influence in the way that I move around stage. This is also such a random concert that I got inspired by because I was around seven years old, but it was this band called The Darkness. They were in Nashville and at that time, they were my favourite band (I was such a rock n’ roll kid) and I remember being really inspired by them.

Taylor Magazine: Talk to us a bit about your songwriting process – how do you deal with writer’s block if you ever get it?

Thomas Rhett: I get it… a lot! I’m a big fan of co-writing. I’ve written a few songs by myself, but I don’t trust myself to finish one all the way through. I like validation, which is why I co-write so much because if my brain isn’t fully on then hopefully the other person’s is! If I don’t have an idea, hopefully someone else does. That’s why co-writing is so special – you can sit and hang out for an hour and suddenly someone will say something that becomes the title, or at least the idea.

Taylor Magazine: When you sit down to write a song, where do you draw your inspiration from?

Thomas Rhett: It used to be from watching fans, meeting people and experiencing new cities and towns or I would just refer back to high school. Love in general – I’ve been married for five years – so I try to write about what I know about or what I have experienced myself in the past.

Thomas Rhett Earns First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart & Country’s First of 2017

Thomas Rhett Earns First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart & Country’s First of 2017

billboard.com — Country singer/songwriter Thomas Rhett achieves his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as his new effort Life Changes bows atop the list. The set — which brings country back to No. 1 for the first time in exactly one year — earned 123,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 14, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 94,000 were in traditional album sales, Rhett’s best sales week and the third largest sales week of 2017 for a country effort.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Sept. 30-dated chart (where Life Changes debuts at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard’s websites Tuesday (Sept. 19).

Life Changes is the first No. 1 country album in 2017, and the first in a year — since Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know spent one week in the penthouse on the list dated Oct. 1, 2016.

Life Changes was released on Valory Records on Sept. 8, and marks the second No. 1 for the imprint (part of Big Machine). Valory previously led the chart with Reba’s Keep on Loving You in 2009 (on Starstruck/Valory).

Rhett’s new album was led by the single “Craving You,” featuring Maren Morris, which hit No. 3 on the Hot Country Songs chart and No. 1 on the Country Airplay tally. The song was followed by the album’s second radio offering, “Unforgettable,” which hit the top 10 on Hot Country Songs and jumped 13-11 on the most recent Country Airplay chart, dated Sept. 23.

Life Changes is Rhett’s third full-length studio album, and fourth effort overall. It follows Tangled Up (No. 6 on the Billboard 200 in 2015), It Goes Like This (No. 6 in 2013) and his self-titled debut EP (No. 133 in 2012).

Rhett brings country music back to the penthouse on the Billboard 200 for the first time in a year. Four country sets came close to hitting No. 1 earlier in 2017, as titles by Brett Eldredge, Zac Brown Band, Chris Stapleton and Brantley Gilbert all debuted and peaked at No. 2. As noted earlier, the last country album to lead the chart was Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know (Oct. 1, 2016), which also marked the only country effort to hit No. 1 in 2016. Comparatively, in 2015, three country albums hit No. 1: Zac Brown Band’s Jekyll + Hyde, Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights and Chris Stapleton’s Traveller.

Life Changes additionally notches Rhett his best sales week ever for an album. Its pure sales figure of 94,000 easily beats Rhett’s previous high of 63,000 logged by Tangled Up’s first week. Further, Life Changes has the third-biggest sales for a country set in 2017, following the debut frames of Stapleton’s From A Room: Volume 1 (202,000) and Zac Brown Band’s Welcome Home (139,000).

Rhett is also the fourth act in a row to notch its first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, following LCD Soundsystem a week ago (with American Dream), Lil Uzi Vert (Luv Is Rage 2) and Brand New (Science Fiction). The last time the chart housed four first-timers in-a-row at No. 1 was a little more than two years ago, when seven acts notched their first No. 1s in succession.

Rhett leads a big week for country in the top 10 on the Billboard 200, as a total of three country efforts arrive in the top 10. Dustin Lynch’s Current Mood bows at No. 7, while Kip Moore’s Slowheart starts at No. 10. It’s the first time there are three country albums in the top 10 in nearly a year, since the Oct. 8, 2016 chart, when Aaron Lewis’ Sinner bowed at No. 4, Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know slipped 1-6 in its second week, and Florida Georgia Line’s Dig Your Roots held at No. 10 in its fourth week. Further, this is the first week we’ve had three country albums bow in the top 10 in almost two years. The top 10 last had a trio of country arrivals on the Oct. 17, 2015 chart, when Don Henley’s Cass County, George Strait’s Cold Beer Conversationand Thomas Rhett’s Tangled Up debuted at Nos. 3, 4 and 6, respectively.
