Thomas Rhett is not only having success as a singer these days but also as a songwriter. His current hit, "It Goes Like This" is sitting just outside the top 10 and he helped write Lee Brice's current song (# 10), "Parking Lot Party." However, there is one song that he gave away that his wife, Lauren Gregory, is still upset about.
“My wife says ‘Round Here’ is her favorite song that I’ve ever written,” Rhett told USA Today. He added that, “She always said, I don’t care if that song sits in a pile forever, please don’t let anybody else cut that song.”
Rhett co-write "Round Here" (currently # 3) with Rodney Clawson and Chris Tompkins. When they decided to let Florida Georgia line have the song, he had to call and share the tough news with his wife.
“I don’t know if she cried, but she was close to it,” he said. Rhett adds, “To this day, she’s like, ‘I can’t believe you gave away that song.’”
