After four No. 1 hits from his third studio album, Life Changes, Thomas Rhett is releasing a fifth track off the album, “Sixteen.”

The latest single is the follow up to “Craving You,” “Unforgettable,” “Marry Me” and “Life Changes.” Written by TR, Sean Douglas and Joe Spargur, the nostalgic tune has TR singing about always looking forward to the next milestone age in ones life.

What I wouldn’t give to be sixteen, wild and free / Cruisin’ up and down Main in my F-150
Roll the windows down, bass too loud from this burnt CD / I’ll be right where I wanna be when I’m sixteen, sixteen , Sixteen, yeah,” he sings in the first chorus.

The song goes on to tell what it’s like to look forward to 18 and then 21 and 25. But what about 30, 40 etc? We’ll save that for part 2. For now, “Sixteen” will bring you back to the good ole days of your youth.

“As a kid, you can’t wait to grow up and reach that next milestone, but when you’re older, you look back and wish you could just be 16, or 18 or 21 again,” TR tells Huffpost about the single.

TR is releasing Life Changes Deluxe on Sept. 21, a year after the release of his sixth studio album, which will include three new tracks,”Country Gold,” “Cardboard Heart” and “When We’re 80.” You can catch Thomas Rhett with Midland and Brett Young out on the road for TR’s Life Changes Tour.
