Thomas Rhett Announces New Album, ‘About A Woman’

Thomas Rhett has a new album coming out this summer. The father of four will release About A Woman, his seventh studio album, on August 23. Rhett co-wrote all but one of the 14 tracks on the new record, which celebrates romantic love, inspired by his own wife, Lauren Akins.

“From top to bottom, I wanted to exude joy and fun with this project – and really just make people move,” Rhett explains. “I went into making this record with a fearless attitude, put my blinders on and my head down to try and make really fun music.”

Rhett already released “Beautiful As You” from the new record, which he said was an ode to his wife of almost 12 years.

“This is an anthem for everybody who feels like they out-kicked their coverage,” Rhett says of the feel-good track. “There was one day a couple years back when I was looking at my wife, and I was like, ‘Why in the world did you choose me?’ I get to be with someone who could easily be on the cover of a magazine, and I get to see her in all her forms – a partner, a mother, a friend, even a philanthropist.

“I just feel like I’ve got a first row seat at almost-perfection, if you will,” he adds. “And like the song says, ‘Seriously, what is somebody as amazing as you doing with somebody like me?’”

Rhett unashamedly wrote and recorded the songs on About A Woman by thinking about Akins, whom he first fell in love with while still in elementary school.

“I feel like if you were to ask me what this record is about, the answer would be it’s about one woman, my wife, and it gave me an opportunity to say ‘I love you’ in a lot of different ways,” he says.

Rhett also spoke out about the new project on social media.

“I’m so excited to tell y’all that my seventh album ‘About A Woman’ will be out on August 23rd!” Rhett writes. “I’ve been working on this since last April and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it. I genuinely think this will be y’all’s favorite record of mine. 14 tracks that put a smile on my face – I hope they will do the same for you.”

Rhett will release “Gone Country” from the record on Friday, June 7. See a track list for About A Womah below. Pre-order the record here. Find all of Rhett’s music and upcoming shows at
