As a 23-year-old singer and songwriter, Thomas Rhett says that a big chunk of his fans are college students. That’s one of the reasons Thomas tells The Dr. Don Show with Rachael and Grunwald he looked to his wife, Lauren, who’s also 23, to be his filter when it came to choosing songs for his debut album, It Goes Like This. “My wife just got out of college, and she’s a fan, and we’ll go watch Luke Bryan and she stands there just like every other girl (with) big eyes and laughing at him and watching him dance and (we) go to a Kenny Chesney show and she’s just as big of a fan, and so I feel like why not play my songs for a fan that’s my age and see what she thinks about it, but there are songs where Lauren is just over the top excited, can’t get it out of her head, and that’s how it was on ‘It Goes Like This.’ I knew it was a hit, but I think Lauren knew it was a bigger hit than I thought it was. You know, there’s a lot of songs on the record that Lauren loved and I knew I had to cut cause I knew if she liked ‘em then a lot of other girls were gonna like ‘em.”
Thomas’ new single is called “Get Me Some of That.” He continues on his headlining tour of club dates with shows running through mid-December.
