Thomas Rhett Drops 2 Holiday Tunes, “The Christmas Song” & “Christmas in the Country” [Listen]

Thomas Rhett is getting into the yuletide spirit with the release of his first-ever holiday tunes, “The Christmas Song” and “Christmas in the Country.”

“Christmas in the Country” is a new song that was penned by TR, David Garcia, Ashley Gorley and Chris Tomlin, while “The Christmas Song” is a holiday classic made popular by Nat King Cole in 1946.

“Christmas is hands-down my favorite time of year,” said Thomas Rhett. “We have so many Christmas traditions in our family that include a lot of festive music, but I’ve never recorded anything myself. Lauren has wanted me to make some Christmas music for a long time, so this year felt like the right time to finally take a stab at writing something and to put my own twist on one of the all-time classics.”
