Thomas Rhett Reveals Album Details

T.R.’s debut set for Oct. 29.

On Tuesday (Aug. 20), rising star Thomas Rhett invited fans to take an expedition through his musical upbringing to help him reveal the cover for his debut album, It Goes Like This. T.R. spent three days sharing videos, interviews and photos beginning with him as a tiny tot singing adorable covers of John Michael Montgomery’s ”Beer and Bones” and Alan Jackson’s “Chattahoochee.” It was a glimpse into what it was like growing up around music, the son of a famous singer/songwriter father, Rhett Akins.

The videos included interviews and performances with his dad, and clips of milestone events with T.R.'s now wife, Lauren, his signing with Big Machine Label Group and the recording of his new single, "It Goes Like This," currently at No. 3 on the iTunes Country Songs chart (behind Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kinda Night” and “Crash My Party”).
 
“This campaign was cool because it showed my life from 1990 to 2013,” Thomas Rhett told Country Weekly. “Kind of like I have been preparing for this since day one. I'm really glad fans could see the whole journey, and it was awesome seeing their reactions to it all.”
 
T.R. teased fans by unveiling his album cover piece by piece, as more and more fans shared #ThomasRhett on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. This morning (Aug. 22), the singer unveiled the full cover, which features him in a denim jacket leaning against a brick wall. 
 
The 12-song album is set to be released on Oct. 29 and will include the singer's hits "Something to Do With My Hands" and "Beer With Jesus." T.R. will continue to give fans a taste of the album while out on the road with Jason Aldean's Night Train Tour through October.
