With live shows off the table for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists are turning to songwriting to keep their creative juices flowing. Thomas Rhett is no different.

During a recent interview with his record label, the superstar revealed that he’s written nearly 40 songs over the course of the past few weeks.

“During quarantine, I mean it’s been 60 something days, I’d probably say I’ve written 35 to 40 songs,” he shared. “I just feel like any kind of change in life can spark a new idea, and especially the same for your co-writers, because they’re going through the same stuff too.”

With new ideas coming from every angle, Rhett admits he feels more creative than ever.

“There’s definitely no shortage of ideas during this time and I do feel very creative,” he said.

The news comes just after Rhett and Jon Pardi took their massive hit “Beer Can’t Fix” to the top of the charts. The song is Rhett’s 15th chart-topping single and is featured on his latest album, Center Point Road.

Rhett will likely release a new album in the coming months as he’s been teasing a number of new songs on social media while in quarantine. Center Point Road was released on May 31, 2019 and features hits such as “Look What God Gave Her” and “Remember You Young.”
