Thomas Rhett's upcoming album will feature musical collaborations with Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini and Jon Pardi. The 16-song project, called Center Point Road, is named after the street in his Hendersonville, Tennessee hometown that shaped and influenced much of his life experiences. Thomas co-wrote all the songs on the album, which is being described as the most autobiographical of his career to date.
He said, “For me, Center Point Road really symbolizes what it was like to grow up in Hendersonville. 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.”
Center Point Road will be released on May 31st.
Thomas is nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards coming up on Sunday, April 7th in Las Vegas. He is also scheduled to perform during the live broadcast airing on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
