The country music star left his fans with goosebumps with his confessional lyrics, which describes his livelihood, his current state of mind, and the small aspects of life that brings him joy.
“It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve written yet and honestly just feels full circle in so many ways,” Rhett shared in a statement. “It’s about the crazy journey I’ve been on over the last decade and ultimately finding my way back home.”
If you listen to the lyrics closely in “Country Again,” you will realize that the megastar has been struggling with work-life balance. Once you make the connection in the title track, you will soon understand the underlining theme of the forthcoming 11-piece-collection.

Rhett penned the potential chart-topping track alongside Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley – where he tips his cowboy hat to the one and only Eric Church in the first verse and name drops his famous wife Lauren Akins in the heart-wrenching third stanza.
As the star strips away the pop-country undertones, he takes a chance and decides to go down the traditional path that showcases his country twang and storytelling lyrics. Keep in mind, that it has almost been 7 years since the musician changed up his sound.
To paint the picture, Rhett unveiled his music video for “Country Again” and it’s as simple as the life he wants to return to in Tennessee. The video was directed by T.K. McKamy, which displays the singer and songwriter just playing his good ol’ acoustic guitar while sharing his beautiful story.
Yeah, I love me some California / But it sure Tennessee / And my roots down there in Georgia / Yeah they started missing me / And I wouldn’t change the things I’ve done / or the places that I’ve been / But man it feels good to be country again.
