Thomas Rhett’s ‘That Old Truck’ Is a Love Letter to His First Car [LISTEN]
Thomas Rhett's "That Old Truck" paints a picture of falling in love and growing up -- and the car in which it all happened. Readers can press play above to listen to the brand-new track.
Rhett co-wrote "That Old Truck" with Julian Bunetta, Kamron Kimbro and OneDirection's Ryan Tedder. "I learned just who I wasn't / And who I was / In that old truck," Rhett sings in the chorus, amid a light melody driven by an acoustic guitar.
"Yeah, you might think it's crazy / And you might not understand," Rhett adds in a bridge. "But that hand-me-down on four wheels / Turned this boy into a man."
"That Old Truck" is one of 16 songs on Center Point Road, Rhett's forthcoming fourth studio album. The project, due out May 31, is named for a street in Rhett's hometown -- and, fittingly, he says, it's a nostalgic record.
"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," Rhett says in a press release. "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."
