article imageReview: Thomas Rhett back with forgettable new single 'Star of the Show' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Nov 11, 2016 in Music
Country singer Thomas Rhett is back with his new radio single "Star of the Show," yet it is a forgettable and boring tune.
Rhett has released three consecutively lackluster singles in a row from Tangled Up, which include "T-Shirt" and "Vacation," and the new single "Star of the Show" is featured on the deluxe edition of the album.
The only high-quality radio single from that album was his love ballad "Die a Happy Man," and everything after that, vocally and quality-wise, went downhill for Rhett (despite "T-Shirt" going No. 1 and "Vacation" reaching the Top 30).
"Star of the Show" is one of those songs that once you read it being played on country radio, you instantly want to change the radio station. Similar to Rhett's previous single "Vacation," it does not sound country at all, with the exception of a slight hint of steel guitar by Skip Edwards. In addition, the production is lacking on this track, and the lyrics (co-written by Rhett and his father) are mediocre at best.
The song seems like something that was pitched to an artist such as John Mayer (since musically it has that singer-songwriter acoustic vibe) yet was passed on.
The Verdict
"Star of the Show" earns a D rating for Thomas Rhett. Let's hope for more promising material from him in the future.
