Critic’s Pick Continues to Tally Scorching Streaming Numbers
Nashville, TN – July 15, 2019 – Reigning ACM Awards Male Artist of the Year Thomas Rhett continues to ride the momentum of his history-making album CENTER POINT ROAD (The Valory Music Co.) as his “affecting” (Rolling Stone) new single “Remember You Young” is welcomed to country radio today. Serving as the second single from his fourth studio album, which remains the only country album to debut atop the Billboard 200 Albums Chart in 2019 and earned the highest streaming debut for a country album ever, the sweeping song of reflection was written by chart-topping collaborators Thomas Rhett, Jesse Frasure and Ashley Gorley.
As “few singers have played a larger role in defining the sound of country music over the past half-dozen years than Thomas Rhett” (Rolling Stone), fans and critics have immediately embraced the “sweet homage to Thomas Rhett’s friends and family” (American Profile) with “Remember You Young” mounting 12.4 MILLION on-demand streams already.
“…an emotional epic that encompasses childhood friends, his marriage, his children and his faith” – Billboard
“A tear-jerking country ballad about the years that fly by and the memories that refuse to dissipate. The second single from Center Point Road, ‘Remember You Young’ was co-written and co-produced by Rhett, whose catalog of wedding-worthy hits just gained another highlight.” – Rolling Stone
“’Remember You Young,’ Rhett’s next country single, and likely his 14th to go to No. 1, with Rhett reminiscing about his wife when they were college kids, and treasuring his own child’s fleeting innocence.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“Thomas Rhett potentially has another massive hit on his hands.” – All Access
