Thomas Rhett announced details of his upcoming fourth studio album Center Point Road ahead of its May 31 release.

The album is named after the street in his Tennessee hometown that, according to a press release announcing the project, shaped and influenced much of his life experiences. The press release also trumpets that the project is a return to his roots, marking the most autobiographical collection of Rhett’s career. The album features collaborations with Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town and Jon Pardi.

“For me, Center Point Road really symbolizes what it was like to grow up in Hendersonville,” Thomas explained. “First dates, first football games, first heartbreak, first kisses, success and failures. I really feel like that road shaped who I am today, and it felt fitting because the record, for the most part, is pretty nostalgic. Songs like ‘Almost,’ ‘That Old Truck’ and especially ‘Center Point Road,’ really describe who I was as a kid and teenager, and who I’ve become as an adult.”

He continued, “On this one, I just got back to why I wanted to make music in the first place – and that was writing great songs. This is one of those records that every time I listen back to it, it still feels new.”
