To thank fans for all the massive support they’ve shown him over the past year, Thomas Rhett released a brand new music video for his track, “American Spirit.”
The patriotic tune, which came along with a handful of other new tracks on the deluxe edition of Tangled Up, pays tribute to the unspoken customs and traditions that America holds true to. From Friday night football games to the easy life driving down dirt roads in pick-up trucks, each verse embodies the beating heart of the country.
Rhett was inspired by the acoustic feel to the song from the start, and he thought there was no better way to reciprocate the love his supporters have given to him over the past year than to surprise them with the nostalgic video.
“‘American Spirit’ is one of my favorite songs to sit down and play on an acoustic guitar,” Rhett said. “So, I knew I wanted to make a video for it…just to share with our fans. I knew I wanted it to be simple and something that would pull on the heartstrings and I think it’s the perfect blend of that.”
During the symbolic video, faded glances of the beauty of the nation slide past the screen from shots of ‘small town America’ to glimpses into the simple life of Rhett as he cruises along in the countryside for a day out in nature. The video also highlights a few performance shots from some of Rhett’s shows, which stand for another important part of the country singer’s life besides his love of his country: his passion for his music.
Rhett will kick off the New Year with his 2017 Home Team Tour, starting on February 23, with special guests such as Kelsea Ballerini, Ryan Hurd and Russell Dickerson. Fans can find more information about the tour, including ticket prices and locations, on Rhett’s website.
