Thomas Rhett - Center Point Road Vinyl 2LP
Thomas Rhett Center Point Road Vinyl 2LP
Named after the street in his Tennessee hometown that shaped and influenced much of his life experiences, Thomas Rhett's eagerly-awaited fourth studio album is a return to his roots, marking the most autobiographical collection of his meteoric career. It is revealed through a series of deeply-personal twists and turns – but, Center Point Road isn't about pining for glory days. It's about knowing where you came from and who you really are, regardless of how much has changed. It's about pushing forward, chasing crazy dreams, raising a family and staying true to yourself in the process.
"For me, Center Point Road really symbolizes what it was like to grow up in Hendersonville," explained Rhett. "First dates, first football games, first heartbreak, first kisses, success and failures. I really feel like that road shaped who I am today, and it felt fitting because the record, for the most part, is pretty nostalgic. Songs like 'Almost,' 'That Old Truck' and especially 'Center Point Road,' really describe who I was as a kid and teenager, and who I've become as an adult. On this one, I just got back to why I wanted to make music in the first place – and that was writing great songs. This is one of those records that every time I listen back to it, it still feels new,"
Center Point Road mines Thomas Rhett's upbringing for inspiration, reaching new heights of exposing truth-life through songwriting with the star co-writing all of the tracks on the album for the first time. In addition to the "buoyant" (Rolling Stone) lead single "Look What God Gave Her," first introduced on Saturday Night Live, the album embraces bold unpredictability which is becoming Thomas Rhett's signature: hot-blooded R&B meets brassy, shag-carpeted funk, danceable disco and breezy beachside soul, joining classic balladry, new school honky-tonk and above all, twangy authenticity.
Rhett once again stepped into a production role, along with long-time companions Dann Huff, Jesse Frasure and Julian Bunetta. Like anyone tracing the contours of their most impactful moments, themes of friendship and fun are everywhere, with Rhett inviting some of his country music pals to guest, noting it only made sense to include your friends on a record inspired by friendship. Delivering universal tales of growing up layered with authenticity, Thomas Rhett revels in taking a look back with Center Point Road and reflects on the path paved to a red-hot career.
