Thomas Rhett DebutsNew Song'Beautiful as You' Inspired by Wife Lauren Akins

Country superstar Thomas Rhett has released a new, single, beautiful, "Beautiful as You," which is inspired by his wife Lauren Akins. The danceable anthem marks the first taste of his upcoming seventh studio album, set for release on August 23 via The Valory Music Co.

Rhett will debut "Beautiful as You" on the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards on May 16, streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime. The single, beautiful is a celebration of hitting the romantic jackpot, with Rhett saying, "This is an anthem for everybody who feels like they out-kicked their coverage." He was inspired by his wife, Lauren, and the feeling of being lucky to be with someone who could easily be on the cover of a magazine.

"Beautiful as You" is co-written by Thomas Rhett and produced by Julian Bunetta. The song features an attention-grabbing piano hook and evolves into a bright, rhythmic anthem full of movement. Rhett explains that the track is influenced by his sold-out globe-trotting tours and a welcome transition at home, where he and Lauren are in a "very joyful season" of life.

Thomas Rhett, 34, and Lauren Akins, also 34, married in 2012 and are parents to four daughters: Willa Gray, 81⁄2, Ada James, 61⁄2, Lennon Love, 4, and Lillie Carolina, 21⁄2. The couple has recently been enjoying a new phase of life as parents, which will be reflected in Rhett's new music.

Thomas Rhett has emerged as a superstar with a reputation for soul-feeding love songs that speak to the masses. He has had 22 No. One singles and has driven 16 billion global streams. With a well-established reputation for stadium-rocking charisma, Rhett is set to perform at major music festivals and more this summer.
