Thomas Rhett recently shared “Death Row,” a new single featuring Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson.
Rhett wrote the track along with Ashley Gorley and Zack Crowell. The song will be featured on Rhett’s sixth studio album Where We Started, due out April 1 via The Valory Music Co.
“Yeah, we talked hunting, we talked fishing / Like I do with boys back home / How Jesus is the ticket / And narrow is the road / About how all we need is forgiveness / ‘Fore we see them streets of gold / Yeah, I learned a lot ’bout livin’ from them boys down on death row,” the trio sings in the chorus.
Rhett said that the song was developed after he, Hubbard and Dickerson had an emotional visit to a men’s prison in Tennessee in 2020.
“Tyler, Russell and I went and played some songs for a men’s prison here in Tennessee,” Rhett shared. “We left with a lot of complex feelings, so I started writing as a way to process the heaviness. Our goal was for people to understand our experience by way of music – it’s basically a page directly from our journal that day.”
