Grammy-nominated singer celebrates small towns and their way of life in new clip

Fresh off a performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest on December 31st, Thomas Rhett released a new music video for his Tangled Up bonus track “American Spirit.” (Watch the video above.)

Directed by TK McKamy, the nostalgic clip reflects the song’s message of “a big life in a small town.” Throughout the video, Rhett strums an acoustic guitar, lounges by a pool and sings beneath the night sky as footage of riders on horseback, playing children and a brightly-lit carnival weave in and out.

For his New Year’s Eve gig and rehearsal, Rhett performed “Die a Happy Man,” “T-Shirt” and “Vacation.” He and his wife Lauren were spotted watching other performances throughout the evening.

“Die a Happy Man” is nominated for Best Country Song at the 58th annual Grammy Awards. Rhett kicks off his Home Team Tour – which features Kelsea Ballerini, Ryan Hurd and Russell Dickerson – in Saginaw, Michigan, on February 23rd.
