After earning his 13th chart-topping single with “Look What God Gave Her,” Thomas Rhett is back at country radio with a fan-favorite track, “Remember You Young.”
The emotional ballad is about always remembering those you love just as they were in, as Rhett puts it, “their prime.”
“We wrote this song about the people in life that we love, and always remembering them in their youth no matter how much time passes and we all change,” Rhett explained of the song which he co-wrote with Jesse Frasure and Ashley Gorley. “There’s something sentimental about remembering your very best friends who have real jobs and families now tearing it up in college, or picturing me and my wife with no cares at the Tin Roof back in Knoxville. I love that the last verse is a bit of twist with it all coming full circle. It actually makes me emotional. It’s easily one of my favorite tracks on the album.”
When writing the song, Rhett was inspired by not only his wife but also, his daughters, Willa Gray and Ada James.
“Hey babies crawling on the carpet/ No, you won’t be that little for long/ One day you’ll move away/ But you’re still gonna stay this innocent after you’re gone,” he sings.
“Remember You Young” is the second single from Rhett’s latest album, Center Point Road, which debuted atop the Billboard 200 upon its release in May. The album also made history when it was released, earning the biggest streaming debut for a country album ever.
Thomas Rhett is currently in the middle of his Very Hot Summer Tour with special guests Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson and Rhett Akins. Fans can visit his official website for details. Rhett will co-host CMA Fest with Kelsea Ballerini and special guest host Bobby Bones on Sunday, Aug. 4 at 8/7c on ABC. See a sneak peek HERE.
