Thomas Rhett is singing an anthem to the past in his new song “Remember You Young.”
Released Friday morning (4/19), the track has Rhett reminiscing on the past and singing of the good ole days.
“Hey buddies that I grew up with / All straight-laced and married up now / You ain’t foolin’ me, wasn’t that long ago / We tore the roof off that one red light town / And hey darlin’, sippin’ that red wine / All classic, kicked back on the couch / You smile and I see ya shootin’ tequila / Us shuttin’ them college bars down,” he sings in the first two verses.
In another verse, he sings of his daughters and how he’ll always remember them as babies, even after they’ve grown and moved on with their lives.
“We wrote this song about the people in life that we love, and always remembering them in their youth no matter how much time passes and we all change,” said Rhett of his co-write with Jesse Frasure and Ashley Gorley. “There’s something sentimental about remembering your very best friends who have real jobs and families now tearing it up in college, or picturing me and my wife with no cares at the Tin Roof back in Knoxville. I love that the last verse is a bit of twist with it all coming full circle. It actually makes me emotional…it’s easily one of my favorite tracks on the album.”
“Remember You Young” is a song featured on Rhett’s upcoming Center Point Road album, set for release on May 31. The record will feature 16 songs, including three collaborations: one with Little Big Town, another with Kelsea Ballerini and a third with Jon Pardi. See the full track listing here.
