Thomas Rhett amplifies the pleasure with “Redneck Be Like”

It’s only been a few months since Thomas Rhett released his fifth studio album, Country again: side A, but the singer tossed fans a curve on Friday August 6 and shared something brand new.

It’s “Redneck Be Like”, a fun, rhythmic hymn perfectly synchronized with its return to the road this weekend (August 13).

“This song is about summer and a chance to relax and let go,” says Rhett. “We wrote it about the cities I grew up in in Georgia and Tennessee, and honestly, every city we live in for the night when we go on tour. We can’t wait to see you all on the road and ride this one. “

Airy, upbeat and easy to sing, “Redneck Be Like” is a coast-to-coast anthem of small town pride and rural summer fun. “We are who we are and we are proud of it / Live this small town lifeRhett sings in the rising pre-chorus of the song.

To raise the bar even higher, the country star and several of his “Redneck” buddies decided to give the song a visual touch, proposing an elaborate TikTok dance. Rhett and his backing dancers host their line-dancing-inspired night in front of a wall of cowboy hats, and the singer says performing the dance and filming it was a whole new experience for him.

“I never thought I would see the day when I would do a TikTok dance but here we are,” he jokes in the caption. “Tag me when you do.”

Thomas Rhett’s “Redneck Be Like” lyrics:

Got a truck, lift it up / Close the pond, scantily dip it / Find a field, turn it in / You have a pot, pass it around, pass it around and sip it / We are Who we are and we’re proud of it / Living that small town life / Redneck, redneck being like …


All day in the sun / Always having fun / Always sinking into that muddy river / Always had the buzz / Always double cup / Catching catfish on chicken liver / Doing all that work until the end of the day / Break a cold one and them redneck, redneck, redneck be like …

Stop sign, it doesn’t happen / Back forty, intrusion / Bonfire, another pallet / Mama’s cookin ‘, paper platin’ tater tater salad / We are who we are and we are proud of it / Living this life of small town / Redneck, redneck be like …

Repeat the chorus

Oh, Joe Diffie on the kicker / Yeti sticker on the back window / Slow drive, can of Skoal in the console / Riding on a side road / Redneck, redneck be like …

Repeat the chorus x 2
