Anything is possible: Thomas Rhett is the newest “belieber.”
The rising country star stopped by the Elvis Duran morning show last week to perform his rendition of pop star Justin Bieber‘s mega hit “Love Yourself,” and he definitely did the song justice.
Rhett took the tongue-in-cheek pop single and added his own country twang to create the perfect mix between the two genres. Rhett’s smooth voice blended harmoniously with the acoustic guitar, resulting in a cover that is on a par with the original.
As well as his live studio performance, Rhett sat down with host Duran to talk about his current single, “Die a Happy Man,” which is becoming a crossover hit on the pop charts in addition to the country charts and is even tying records with Taylor Swift.
“With this song you’re about to play, I’ve noticed in our live shows you can watch us play the show and sort of figure out who we are, then we play this one song called ‘Die a Happy Man,'” Rhett explains. “Then all of a sudden your barriers are kind of down, you don’t care about what just really happened, you just know you love that song and you believe it. So I think it’s important that music doesn’t have any barriers or boundaries.”
The interview also went into details about his wife and their fairytale story, as well as what it was like to grow up with a star for a dad, but we’ll let you watch the whole thing for yourself.
