Thomas Rhett is bringing his new single, “What’s Your Country Song,” to life in a brand new, nostalgia-filled music video.

Directed by Rhett’s longtime collaborator TK McKamy, the clip transport viewers back in time with shots of various families and images of cornfields, creeks, a picturesque country home, high school football and more.

“The lyrics of this song stir up so many vivid memories for me; I think everyone has that one song that takes them back to a specific moment in time,” the ACM Entertainer of the Year shared. “I wanted the music video to visually capture that same thing and instantly transport anyone watching back to that familiar feeling or place in their mind.”

“What’s Your Country Song” is the lead single from Rhett’s yet-to-be-announced fifth studio album and follows 16 career No.1 s.

The song finds Rhett referencing several iconic country songs such as Alabama’s “Dixieland Delight,” George Strait’s “All My Ex’s Live In Texas,” Garth Brooks’ “Friends In Low Places,” “That Ain’t My Truck,” by his father, Rhett Akins, and so many more.

“What’s Your Country Song” was written by Thomas Rhett alongside Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Parker Welling.

“We wrote this song on the road last year in Dallas, Texas,” Rhett previously explained. “It’s really about how I was noticing that no matter where you live or where you’re from, everyone has a little bit of country inside their bones.”
