Big Machine Label GroupNow that Thomas Rhett has two #1 hits under his belt from his debut album, It Goes Like This, he’s busy working on the follow-up project. While the new album will feature songs geared towards the ladies, like “It Goes Like This” and “Get Me Some of That,” Thomas plans to strip things down a little bit on his sophomore release, thematically and sonically.

“The second one’s gonna be just kinda more of what I’m doing now,” Thomas tells ABC News Radio. “Obviously, I write a bunch of girls’ songs, that’s kinda my forte. But there’s songs on there that are gonna be more broken down, more organic feeling. So, I’m looking forward to it, man.”

Thomas has been on tour non-stop for the last few years, and he’s learned a lot being on the road. That education will show up in his new songs.

As for being on the road, Thomas says, “You figure out yourself, I guess. Write different songs. You experience so much that you start writing, you start to get deeper with yourself.”

Look for Thomas at the 2014 CMT Music Awards coming up June 4. His “It Goes Like This” video is up for two trophies.
