In the midst of his headlining set in Pittsburgh at The Pavilion At Star Lake, the country superstar performed “She Had At Me At Heads Carolina,” a song that he co-wrote alongside Cole Swindell, Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure, Mark D. Sanders, and Tim Nichols. The song appears on Swindell’s album, Stereotype, and is his current single at Country Radio.
Ahead of the performance, Rhett explained to the crowd that before he became a singer he wrote songs for artists.
“So, before I was ever an artist all I did was write songs for other people and this year I was very privileged to write a song with a good friend of mine named Cole Swindell,” Rhett said.
He then told the crowd, “Me and the band literally learned this today, so, if you know the song sing along with us. This is called ‘She Had Me At Heads Carolina.”

Cole Swindell Recently Teased A Duet With Thomas Rhett
Swindell explained that the tune was born out of he and Rhett’s love for ’90s country music.
“We both love ’90s country music, and we wanted to pick a song that we could put a spin on,” Swindell previously shared. “That Jo Dee Messina song [“Heads Carolina, Tails California“] was one of my favorites. I’ve always had a good time at karaoke, and that was the idea behind it.”
He also revealed that the song may be reimagined in the form of a duet with him and Rhett. “There might even be a version with Thomas Rhett on it,” Swindell teased.
Rhett is currently on the road in the midst of his headlining Bring The Bar To You Tour with special guests Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.
The Bring The Bar To You Tour kicked off on June 17 in Gilford, NH. The tour, which features support from Parker McCollum and Conner Smith, will visit 30 cities throughout the United States before wrapping up on October 15 in Dayton, Ohio at Nutter Center.
Throughout the tour, Rhett joins forces with his tour mates Parker McCollum and Conner Smith for a pair of epic duets that include a cover of Brooks & Dunn’s “Neon Moon” as well as “Beer Can’t Fix,” a duet that originally features Jon Pardi.
