Political turmoil is still dominating headlines in the 2020 presidential election’s wake, but Thomas Rhett taps into country’s unifying spirit in his new single, “What’s Your Country Song.”

Celebrating the idea that everyone has a little country in them, no matter where you’re from, the new track features a warm, country-rock sound and an inviting vocal, as Rhett teaches a lesson in country history. The free-and-easy jam name checks dozens of country’s most iconic hits to prove there’s something for everyone in the genre — and to also remind listeners how much they have in common. From Alan Jackson’s “Drive (for Daddy Gene)” to Hank Williams“I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and even newer hits like Jake Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” Rhett proclaims his music as a uniter, not a divider.

“We wrote this song on the road last year in Dallas, Texas,” Rhett says in a press release. “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.”

“Everybody got a small town anthem / Everybody got a story to tell / Everybody got a hallelujah / Everybody been through a little hell / When you’re rolling down a little two lane highway / And you turn your radio on / Tell me which one hits you baby / Yeah, what’s your country song?” goes the chorus.

Rhett co-wrote “What’s Your Country Song” with his father, Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Parker Welling, and it now serves as the first look at his upcoming fifth studio album.
