Country music superstar Thomas Rhett is getting us ready for the holiday season! The singer-songwriter celebrated his favorite holiday by releasing two new Christmas jams for fans to listen to all season long, including an original entitled “Christmas In The Country” and his own rendition of the classic “The Christmas Song.”
“Christmas is hands-down my favorite time of the year,” the hitmaker shares in a recent press release. “We have so many Christmas traditions in our family that included a lot of festival 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.”
Making his wife, family, and fans proud, Rhett’s new original song is an instant hit. The new track is endearing and as cheerful as they come! The singer laments about all his favorite Christmas traditions and wintery landscapes, as the sounds of jingle bells create an inviting backing track to his smooth vocals.
“We got snowflakes falling on an old true lane / Red-bow wreathes on a windowpane / Just sitting ‘round a fire with the ones who love me / Miles from a city and the crazy crowd / Where the pine trees grow and the world slows down / Way out here, yeah man I sure feel lucky / Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)”
Keeping the spirit of Christmas alive and well, Rhett also premiered his rendition of his wife’s favorite Christmas classic “The Christmas Song.” In his version, the Grammy nominee leans on his country roots and R&B vibes to deliver a spectacular cover of the heartwarming classic laced with jazz influences. It is clear that the singer has been gearing up to record this special song for a long time coming.
We love how Thomas Rhett continues to deliver music that speaks to who he is an artist and as a family man. The singer just wrapped up his widely successful 2019 Very Hot Summer Tour last month. The sold-out tour blazed its way through major cities, including an unforgettable stop at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
