On March 31, Thomas Rhett released the lead single, “Craving You,” from his upcoming third studio album. The new single, which was co-written by TR, Julian Bunetta and Dave Barnes, features vocals from Maren Morris. But that’s not the only collaboration on the upcoming album.
Yesterday (March 31) during a Q/A session at an Outnumber Hunger event, TR told emcee Alecia Davis that his new album also features collaborations with acress/singer Selena Gomez and his father, Rhett Akins.
“I’ve never written more than I’ve written in the last year, and so we had lots of songs to pick from,” said Thomas Rhett. “So the tough part is going to be narrowing them down for the album. My dad is featured on a song, which is pretty cool. I’m trying to be solely responsible for reviving his artistry career [laughing] . . . we have this girl named Selena Gomez sing on a song on the record and she’s pretty cool. I promise you, if I could collaborate on every song, I would. I love doing songs with different people and doing songs with friends. It’s a very all-over-the-place record, that’s for sure. There’s songs on there about kinda finding out I’m going to be a dad of two, there’s love songs on there. There’s songs that are too crazy for anybody to ever play, but I think that’s what I’m good at.”
