Thomas Rhett & Riley Green Have All the Fun With “Half Of Me”

Following up the success of his song “Slow Down Summer” – Thomas Rhett is turning to his buddy Riley Green for “Half Of Me.”

“Half Of Me” is the latest single from Thomas’ album Where We Started.

Sharing the story behind the song, Rhett says, “I think I knew from the very first moment we wrote this song, I wrote it with my dad (Rhett Akins), Josh Thompson and Will Bundy, we wrote it on the bus in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the first time I heard this song I just kept seeing Riley Green being a part of this song, and I’ve gotten to know Riley pretty good over the last couple years, we’ve became good hunting buddies and just a good friend to know, and he drove up from Alabama and put his vocal on this song and we had a good time cracking up about vocals, and I think he nailed this thing in like three takes. He got to sing it with me one night in Ohio, and I think this is going to be really special going into the summertime, to release just a simple song about drinking beer this summer, and I think it was a really cool fit having Riley Green on this song.

Riley Green recalls Thomas reaching out to him about being on the track, “So, when Thomas called me about doing ‘Half Of Me’ I remember the first time I heard the song I thought it was an awesome summer song, a beer drinkin’ song, I was kind of sold from the first moment at Duck camp hearing about a song of maybe wanting to drink a beer instead of doing work, I think that was kind of the story of my childhood- probably most of us.” 

Fans will get to hear Thomas singing “Half Of Me” when his Bring The Bar To You tour – with Parker McCollum and Conner Smith – starts on June 17th in New Hampshire, “I can’t wait to play this song this summer on the road.”

Thomas teases that there might be some chances for fans to see the two sing “Half Of Me” together this summer, “Hopefully Riley makes an appearance somewhere or maybe I can make an appearance with you.”

To which Green responds “Let’s go!”
