Thomas Rhett’s newly released album, Life Changes is one that fans can’t get out of their heads. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, having Rhett receive his first chart-topping album, it was also the first country album to be number one in 2017.
Life Changes consists of 14 new songs, mostly inspired by Rhett’s life, most specifically about how his wife, Lauren Rhett Akins effected his life.
Most of the songs on the album consist of pop-country songs like “Craving you” and “Grave” which are both very catchy and upbeat.
Rhett’s song “Life Changes” is by far one of the best on the album. In this song Rhett highlights things that affected his career, and his life. Rhett’s lyrics reflect on his marriage, the adoption of his daughter from Uganda and the birth of his first child.
He sang about how he wrote songs for his wife including “Die a Happy Man” which was one of his first big hits, setting off his career.
My favorite song on the Album has to be “Unforgettable.” The song is a very typical pop-country love song. It’s based solely on Rhett’s wife and how she changed his life. He penned the song around when he first met Lauren, explaining how that night was “unforgettable.”
The album also includes some slower songs like “Sweetheart,” “Gateway Love” and “Kiss Me Like a Stranger.” One of the most memorable songs on the album is “Drink a Little Beer” which Rhett wrote with his father, who is also featured on the song.
Overall, I think that this album is some of Rhett’s best work and it has yet to disappoint fans.
