Thomas Rhett Talks About Getting His Good Buddy Riley Green on His New Single [VIDEOS]

Thomas Rhett’s new single, “Half of Me,” is a collaboration with his good buddy, Riley Green, who was his first and only choice to join him on the song when he co-wrote and recorded it. “When we went into the studio to record it, I was like, this song is so cool. I love it. Who could we get on here to feature?,” recalls Thomas.”

While he has plenty of buddies in the music business he could have called, Thomas says, “Riley Green and I have become really good buddies over the last couple years. And I remember sending him that song, and had forgotten that I played it for him like a year previous and we never talked about it again. And I said, ‘Man, would you feature on this?’ And he was like, ‘Absolutely.’”

Besides loving having his friend join him on the song, Thomas was totally impressed with Riley’s performance in the studio. “I remember Riley pulls up to my producer’s house,” says Thomas, “and literally three takes and it was done. He’s so good, so talented.”

“Half of Me” is the latest release off Thomas Rhett’s Where We Started album.
