Beyond the Grammy For Best Country Song

Thomas Rhett keeps releasing hit after hit. Country Again is the title track off of his latest record. The song itself became an anthem for fans. The idea came about while in quarantine during the height of the pandemic.

“The first 30, 40 days of quarantine I was freaking out cause I did not know what to do,” Rhett admitted. He knew that he should be at rehearsal, on tour, and in the studio. Doing typical things in his day-to-day life.

“And my wife was like, ‘Honey, I think you have to just realize that you can’t do this right now. So, maybe why don’t you just take a step back and live some life and then go try to write again.’ And so, I literally didn’t write a song for almost two months, which is the longest I’ve ever gone, I think, in my whole life. And when I came back, the very first song I wrote was ‘Country Again,’” he shared.
