Before the show Thomas Rhett spoke with Backstage Country about the single and his inspiration while writing it. “I wrote this song about a very special woman in my life,” he began. “Her name is Lauren. This is basically a song about how I completely outkicked my coverage as a husband, just like we all did. It’s up-tempo and fun to listen to. You can dance to it. It’s a fun one.”

Rhett is also planning his seventh album, out on August 23, making “Beautiful As You” his lead single. According to Rhett, this album brought him “back to the root” of making music and reminded him why he loves doing it.

“I did this with a with a new batch of producers and a lot of different songwriters. This is the ‘funnest’ album that I’ve made. This is a very, very me album,” he explained.
