Thomas Rhett Applauds Family, Charity With ‘Look What God Gave Her’ [WATCH]
Despite its sultry R&B tone, reigning ACM Male Artist of the Year Thomas Rhett's recent single "Look What God Gave Her" celebrates sincerity over sensuality. To drive this point home, Rhett and director TK McKamy's new music video features more than just the singer's totally adorable family -- wife Lauren Akins and their daughters Willa Gray and Ada James. Press play above to watch!
“When we started talking about the music video, it was natural to include Lauren, but I also wanted to include other inspirational women who are doing some amazing things,” said Rhett. “Rather than hire actors for the video, we connected with the founder of Love One and her family, the women of Thistle Farms and an incredible artist who also did our art for the single cover to come be featured. Being able to spotlight them and celebrate these strong women along with my wife and daughters was such a special experience.”
Backstage after the ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 7), Rhett explained that he loves including his children in all of his career successes. After all, at this point, country music hits are family tradition: Rhett grew up watching his famous father, songwriter and country singer Rhett Akins.
Rhett co-wrote "Look What God Gave Her" with Akins, as well as Julian Bunetta, John Ryan and J Cash. It teases Center Point Road, a 16-song album featuring previously released track "That Old Truck," plus collaborations with Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini and Jon Pardi. It's slated for a May 31 release.
The album arrives during Rhett's headlining Very Hot Summer Tour, visiting 40 stops across the US between April 24 and Oct. 12. Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson and Akins will open select dates.
