New Music Friday: Thomas Rhett, Lauren Alaina, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini And Shay Carter

A list of fresh tracks to kick-start your Father’s Day weekend celebration!

Happy New Music Friday, country fans!

It’s time to roll down your windows, crack open a cold one and enjoy the fire list of weekend anthems Celeb Secrets Country has carefully crafted for you.

Thankfully, the country music gods have answered our prayers because we have new tunes from Thomas Rhett, Lauren Alaina, Kelsea Ballerini, LANY, Shay Carter, and many more buzz-worthy names in the industry. However, there is one man who brought us to tears with his heartfelt ballad, that arrived just in time for Father’s Day weekend. 

On Saturday, June 12, Thomas Rhett took center stage at the iconic Grande Ole Opry to debut “Things Dads Do.” Rhett penned the track alongside his father, Matt Dragstrem and Chase McGill.

According to a recent statement, “The timely song effortlessly deploys entertaining tongue-in-cheek lyrics highlighting the amusing habits of fatherhood, while also chronicling the tender full-circle journey of ultimately turning into your dad.” 

While standing in the legendary circle at the Opry, Rhett told his fans that “Things Dads Do” has gone down in history as one of his favorite tracks he has ever created with his father. “This is probably my favorite song I’ve gotten to write with my dad,” says the star.

“I’ve learned so many life lessons from him, and it’s pretty wild to see so much of him in myself now that I’m a dad. It felt like we should go-ahead to release it for all of y’all who have been asking since we wrote it and to celebrate all the dads out there,” he adds. 

So, before you celebrate your father this weekend, go ahead and take a listen to the heartwarming hit and send us a video or photo of how you are honoring your dad by sending us a tweet at @CS_Country
