ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee, Thomas Rhett has been staying busy during quarantine, performing a ton of new songs he has written for his fans on Instagram. The singer-songwriter debuted two more for us recently, “Bass Pro Hat” and “That’ll Be Us Someday.”
Musically, “Bass Pro Hat” sounds a lot like his hit song, “Unforgettable,” as he sings fast with a similar chord progression and a clap backing every other beat. In the song, Rhett mentions how the term ‘paradise’ to most people means sitting on a beach when it’s sunny and 75, but to him, it’s riding a tractor with his girl sitting on his lap wearing a backwards Bass Pro hat. Check it out in the video below.
“Ain’t got a lot, but we got it made / Steady falling like it’s spring-time rain /
Sweet tea going nowhere fast / Might sound crazy but we like it like that”
There are plenty of romance songs on country radio right now, but no one does them quite like Thomas Rhett. “That’ll Be Us Someday,” if officially released, will be many couples’ wedding song. Presumably written about his wife, Lauren from the perspective of his younger self, Rhett looks forward to his future and paints beautiful pictures of what their life is going to look like together. Each chorus is different; the first one describes their wedding day, followed by raising their children, and finally, growing old and gray, sitting side-by-side on their rocking chairs. Check it out in the video below.
Rhett recently scored his 16th number one single with his “Be A Light” collaboration featuring Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Chris Tomlin and Hilary Scott. All of the proceeds from that song are going to MusiCares, and Rhett, along with Big Machine Label Group CEO Scott Borchetta, just made a hefty donation of $100,000. So far, MusiCares and their COVID-19 Relief Fund has helped thousands of people affected by the coronavirus to make ends meet, directly supporting those in the music community as the need remains dire.

Fans on social media have been begging the country superstar to release these songs. We are hoping he will combine all of these tracks and drop an acoustic, quarantine record.
