Thomas Rhett is no stranger to radio hits. This year alone, two songs he’s been a part of have gone all the way to No. 1 on the country charts including Florida Georgia Line‘s “Round Here,” which he penned, and his own single, “It Goes Like This.”
Rhett’s latest single, “Get Me Some of That,” was written by his father (Rhett Akins), Michael Carter and Cole Swindell. Released this week, the song’s video brings the story of the song to life. Seeing a girl at a party he likes, the guy in the music video tries to approach her but is bamboozled by a friend.
Rhett’s wife (Lauren Gregory Akins), whom he married last October, has a role in the video as well (at the end of the video, Rhett notices her from across the room). He also invited fans to sign up to be a part of his video, and in a behind-the-scenes video, Rhett said it was a really cool experience to allow fans to be a part of the Nashville filming.
In an interview with Radio.com earlier this year, the singer explained that even if, like on “Get Me Some of That,” he’s not the songwriter on a song, he has to see himself in it before he decides to record it.
“If I can’t imagine myself singing that song live, it’s not going to work for me,” he explained. “I’ve got to hear myself singing it in the studio and doing it for the next 20 years of my life in order for me to put it on a record.”
