After ringing in the new year with millions of people in Times Square on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on Saturday (December 31st) night, Thomas Rhett brings it back home releasing a new video to fans for “American Spirit,” a cut off his Tangled Up Deluxe album. Thomas premiered the video yesterday (Monday, January 2nd) on Vevo. The clip was shot outside of Nashville, TN.
Thomas said, “‘American Spirit’ is one of my favorite songs to sit down and play on an acoustic guitar, so I knew I wanted to make a video for it . . . just to share with our fans. I knew I wanted it to be simple and something that would pull on the heartstrings and I think it’s the perfect blend of that."
Thomas tells us that "American Spirit" truly captures the essence of its title. [“American Spirit is one of those songs that I think fully captures the American lifestyle. Whether that’s going to a football game or whether it’s just riding around on a farm, hanging out with your friends, or sitting around a bonfire playing guitar. It’s a life song. I love that this song is very dedicated towards just American culture and a very nostalgic culture. I love playing this song. It’s one of my favorite songs to just sit down on the guitar and play it acoustic. I think it’s going to make for a very, very different moment in my show."] SOUNDCUE (27 OC: . . . in my show.)
Thomas launches his first-ever headlining Home Team tour with special guest Kelsea Ballerini and up-and-comers Russell Dickerson and Ryan Hurd on February 23rd in Saginaw, MI.
