American Country singer has released a new album entitled Center Point Road. This record has a personal touch by telling stories about his life growing up in Tennessee, his relationships, etc. The title Center Point Road refers to the street where you grew up in Nashville, Tennessee.
The music is primarily country music combined with Pop or Rock, depending on the song. The instruments heard in the album are guitar and piano. The composition of this record is fantastic, full of rhythm. It has a Summer/road trip vibe to it. The quality is magnificent. I love the slow songs because the sound of the guitar is distinct, and sounds as if I were there.
Thomas Rhett’s voice is beautiful, soft, and sweet. He knows how to follow the rhythm flawlessly. He has incredible duets with Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini and Jon Pardi. He sounds soulful and full of life, making the songs even more genuine.
The lyrics of each song on this album tell a familiar story. Having read and heard about his personal life, I appreciate listening to the tunes of this record, and I connected to them. I watched an interview on a French show called Sucré Salé (Sweet & Salty) May 31, 2019. Alexandre Despatie interviewed Thomas Rhett. That’s when Rhett told him about the significance of the album’s titled. The words of each tune bring inspiration and perspective. Songs like Blessed and Almost describe [something]. The piece Up is about not losing hope no matter what obstacles come one’s way. The more personal songs include Look What God Gave Her, Center Point Road, That Old Truck, and Blessed are few examples. The story-telling aspect makes this album genuine and authentic.
My favourite songs are Look What God Gave Her, Almost, Blessed, Notice, and Things You Do For Love.
The album Center Point Road is now available.
