Thomas Rhett's latest single, "Country Again," contains a message that he really needed to be reminded of at the time he wrote it. He tells us: [“You know, I think this song really is about my life, just slowing down and really trying to look at the priorities in my life and what they mean to me. And realizing that it’s okay just to stop for a second. It’s okay to live simple and to really just put your priorities at the top of your list – the ones that are most important to you. And for me, that’s becoming a better dad, a better husband, a better friend, a better son, a better brother, and really just kinda getting back to my roots a little bit and what all that entails.”] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . all that entails.)

Just seven weeks after its release, the song is already inside the Top 20 and climbing on the charts.

Thomas performed "Country Again" during Wednesday (June 9th) night's CMT Music Awards in Nashville.
