YMMV / Thomas Rhett

  • Broken Base: Due to his constant Genre Roulette, fans have been divided over the more "bro-country" sounding early material, or the more mature pop material he largely put out from "Die a Happy Man" onward. Some think both iterations suck equally, and that he's just trading out one "not at all country" element for another. Pretty much the only song of his that is universally liked even by those who otherwise hate him is is "Beer with Jesus".
  • Ear Worm: The disco-flavored surroundings of "Make Me Wanna".
  • Moment of Awesome: "Die a Happy Man" spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay chart, making it the longest-tenured song there in nearly a decade. If the main Hot Country Songs chart is considered, it spent 17 weeks atop the chart, third longest in the 2010s decade (behind the 24-week reign by Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" in 2013 and the even longer run of Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road") but in a tie for 10th all-time (with Margaret Whiting and Jimmy Wakely's 1949 country-pop smash "Slippin' Around," Webb Pierce's 1954 honky-tonk weeper "Slowly," and Elvis Presley's 1956 breakthrough "Heartbreak Hotel").
  • Signature Song: "Die a Happy Man".
  • Suspiciously Similar Song:
    • Many people have pointed out that "Crash and Burn" sounds a lot like Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang".
    • "Die a Happy Man" is both melodically and thematically similar to Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud".
    • "Vacation" ended up sounding like War's "Low Rider" in some places, so Rhett credited the writers and producer of that song, as well as every member of War.
    • "Unforgettable" borrows heavily from "Closer" by The Chainsmokers.
