Thomas Rhett’s new album may not be out yet, but that hasn’t stopped him from giving fans even more music ahead of its release.
The 27-year-old country superstar has dropped a new album track, “Grave” and it is so beautiful.
In the anthemic song, Thomas shines a positive and romantic light on the difficult topic of mortality. He talks about letting go of tangible items such as diamonds and gold, while continuing to hold onto everlasting love.
“When the good Lord calls me home and this life is through / I may be six feet deep, but I’ll still be loving you,” he croons in the lyric video above. “Baby, what we got won’t ever die.”
“Grave,” penned by songwriters, Chris DeStefano, Hillary Lindsay, and Josh Miller, is the fourth track to be released ahead of Thomas’ third album, “Life Changes,” due out Sept. 8.
Even though Thomas didn’t write the song, it couldn’t be better suited for him, as the lyrics reflect the kind of love he has for his wife and two daughters. Fans already know that he became a first-time daddy this year when he and his wife, Lauren, adopted Uganda-born daughter, Willa Gray. Then, on Aug. 12, Lauren gave birth to their second daughter, Ada James.
“Grave” follows the earlier release of Thomas’ hit duet featuring Maren Morris, “Craving You,” as well as the tracks “Sixteen” and “Unforgettable.”
