Thomas Rhett's new album, Center Point Road, will be released on May 31, and the singer has officially released the tracklist for the project, which was inspired by his upbringing in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
“For me, Center Point Road really symbolizes what it was like to grow up in Hendersonville," Rhett shared. "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,” he added. “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.”

"Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time," Rhett's team-up with Little Big Town, has already been released.
