On Friday (Jan. 22), the “What’s Your Country Song” singer appeared on The Bobby Bones Show to chat about his just-released tequila brand, Dos Primos, which he released with his cousin Jeff Worn. During his appearance on the popular radio show, Rhett also spoke about writing some songs for Wallen’s new album and teased his forthcoming new album a bit.
Rhett shared that when he wrote “Your Bartender,” he “kind of knew at the first chorus” that the song “might not be” for him but he “knew that it sounded like a really big song for somebody.” And he immediately thought of Wallen and sent it to him and he replied “is this for me or is this for you” and Rhett replied “this is for you if you want to do it.” Wallen quickly “fell in love with the song and recorded it” for his new album.
The superstar revealed that “Whiskey’d My Way” was a hard song to give up as it was one of his personal favorites that wrote while out on the road last year in 2020. Rhett loved the song so much that he even covered the song on his Instagram following its release, which you can watch HERE.
“‘Whiskey’d My Way’ was a hard one to give up,” Rhett revealed. “that was one of my favorite songs I wrote on the road last year but for some reason I wrote it kind of a lot of songs not necessarily in that same content wise but musically that are going to be coming out on my new record, so it kind of felt like something that maybe Morgan would do a whole lot better than I would and he definitely did.”
The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year then gushed over how proud he his of Wallen and his record-breaking album, Dangerous: The Double Album.
“That’s the record to be on man, I could not be prouder for the guy.” Rhett said. “He’s become a good friend of mine and for him to think a couple songs that I wrote were good enough to make that amazing project, that’s a huge honor for me. He’s a good dude and I love watching good people win.”
Additionally, Rhett added that Wallen’s voice is so distinctive that there is no “denying whose singing when you hear his voice.”

In a recent interview, Wallen revealed that although he isn’t a fan of Zoom writing he did write one song with a “couple of buddies” including superstar Thomas Rhett and it ended up being a very “successful Zoom write” and Wallen thinks that the song they wrote is “gonna end up being on his [Thomas Rhett] album.”
