YMMV / Thomas Rhett

  • Broken Base: When he releases a more upbeat song like "It Goes Like This" or "Make Me Wanna", he's accused of chasing the bro-country trend. When he releases something more substantial, he's accused of ripping off other artists. Then there's "Vacation", an electronically produced bro-country song which makes "It Goes Like This" sound like George Strait in comparison...
  • 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, still second longest in the 2010s decade (behind the 24-week reign by Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" in 2013) but in a tie for ninth 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" and "Die a Happy Man" like 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.
