Rhett's new CD opens with the up-tempo "Whatcha Got In That Cup" and it is followed by his breakthrough single and Top 15 hit "Something To Do With My Hands."
"Get Me Some Of That" would make a solid choice for a future radio single. "Call Me Up" can easily be the male country rebuttal to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."
"It Goes Like This" is his latest radio single which sits at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts for three consecutive weeks, and rightfully so, since it is a standout track on the CD.
The only mediocre tunes on the collection were "Make Me Wanna" and "Front Porch Junkies (remix)," the latter of which showcases his country-rap side.
"In A Minute" is a fun song where his vocals are reminiscent to those of country star Eric Church. "Take You Home" is equally remarkable.
"Sorry for Partyin'" is another fun drinking tune.Many of his male listeners can relate to his upbeat "All-American Middle Class White Boy."
His CD closes with the moving ballad "Beer With Jesus."
The Verdict
Overall, Thomas Rhett's CD garners 4 out of 5 stars. It is highly eclectic with slow songs, upbeat ones and other tunes where he even raps. Fans of Eric Church, Kip Moore, Brad Paisley, Colt Ford and Brantley Gilbert will like Rhett's latest album.
