Thomas Rhett’s ‘Life Changes’ Album: Everything You Need to Know
Thomas Rhett has revealed the upcoming release of his hugely-anticipated third studio album, Life Changes, and Taste of Country has pulled together all of the information that is available about the project.
Life Changes is the follow-up to Rhett’s career-changing Tangled Up album from 2015. That album yielded contemporary country music staples including “Die a Happy Man,” “Crash and Burn,” “T-Shirt” and “Star of the Show.” Rhett has already scored a No. 1 hit with the lead single from Life Changes, “Craving You,” a duet with Maren Morris, and he’s chosen “Unforgettable” as the second single from the project.
Read on to find out everything we know about the songs, producers, release date and more information about Thomas Rhett’s third album, Life Changes.
Rhett revealed that his third studio album is titled Life Changes on July 27, 2017. That’s also the title of one of the songs, which was inspired by the enormous changes he’s seen in his life over the past few years — especially he and wife Lauren welcoming their adopted daughter Willa Grace.
“It’s kind of about my daughter and it’s kinda about a lot of things,” Rhett tells Taste of Country. “Basically it goes from me being in college to me being here now and how drastically my life has changed in the last five or six years. And Willa being a huge part of that.”
