After celebrating his first No. 1 as an artist with “It Goes Like That,” Thomas Rhett is releasing “Get Me Some of That” as his follow-up single. The song was written by his father, Rhett Akins, who Thomas says is on a bit of a good luck streak.

“Dad’s getting real lucky on this record,” he said. “This will be the second one in a row that he’s written that I did not have a part of and I think it’s cool.” 

Thomas admits that he used to think he was a sellout if he didn’t write all the songs on his record. “I’m over that idea,” he said. “For me it’s, if I write a song that I love and I can’t live without it, I record it. If, for some reason, none of my songs that I write are filling this gap on the record, I am so open to getting songs pitched to me by anyone. For me it’s ‘the best song wins’.”

“Get Me Some of That” is included on Thomas’ debut album, It Goes Like This.
