Thomas previously opened up about working with his father, revealing that Rhett is, by far, his favorite person to write songs with.

“My favorite person to write with, as a whole, I think is my dad,” he revealed. “Even though I write with a bunch of other people, my dad and I do have a pretty special bond. Probably because he’s my dad, but he’s also like a really good friend of mine and a really fun co-writer.”
