Thomas Rhett undoubtedly writes some huge country hits, but he'd like to test the waters of pop music as a songwriter. He tells us: [“As my career goes I think it would be really fun to take a three or four month span where that’s all I tried to do. Maybe go to L.A. and, I don’t know, try to become friends with Adam Levine, try to get on those records. But right now it’s been a lot of fun for songs that I know that I’m not gonna cut. I’ll send ‘em to Jason or I’ll send ‘em to Luke or I’ll send ‘em to Morgan Wallen or whoever it is and just take a shot in the dark. And sometimes they get cut and sometimes they don’t. But I think it’s the songs that don’t get cut that make the ones that do, because I think you have to write and write and write until something that you love a lot comes out. And then those are the songs that end up making the record.”] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . . making the record.)
Of course, Thomas' songs have already been recorded by Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean and Rascal Flatts.
He also co-wrote his own latest hit, "Be A Light," which features Reba McEntire, Keith Urban, Lady A's Hillary Scott and Christian artist Chris Tomlin. The song sits at Number Six on the Mediabase chart this week.
