Thomas Rhett’s new song “Death Row” featuring Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson is out now, March 4th. Listen to the brand new track below.
For the last couple of months, superstar, Thomas Rhett has been sharing songs off his upcoming record, Where We Started (due out April 1st). As usual, Rhett runs the emotional gamut, giving fans songs to drink to, songs to cry to, and songs that make you think. His brand new song, “Death Row”, out today, hits the emotional trigger.
The brand new track features longtime friends, Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson. Written by Rhett with prolific songwriters, Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley, “Death Row” is a pensive, thought-provoking track. Each singer, Rhett, Hubbard, and Dickerson each take a verse to share stories and experiences that they seemingly learned from inmates doing time in prison. Rhett shared in a recent interview that the new song was inspired by a real-life experience for the trio.
“Just last week, I went to prison // To see some boys down on death row // I brought some guitars and my buddies // To play some songs we thought they’d know // I could feel myself trembling // When I shook one of their hands // I thought that he would be a monster // Turns out he’s a whole lot like I am”
The emotional encounter clearly took a toll on Rhett and his fellow collaborators. The singer-songwriter has a knack for sharing stories, and “Death Row” exemplifies that. Hubbard and Dickerson add additional elements to the already incredible collab. So far, Where We Started is shaping up to be a phenomenal project from Rhett.
