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."
Rhett's first single from Center Point Road is "Look What God Gave Her," which he dropped in early May. The project also includes collaborations with Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini and Jon Pardi.
