Thomas Rhett performs “Angels” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday, April 6th . The song is a track off of his sixth studio album, Where We Started.
This very gentle performance of “Angels” touched audience’s hearts everywhere. His music is typically more upbeat and pop-sounding, so it was incredible to hear Rhett’s soft, slow tempo. His vocals stood out as the six-piece band accompanied behind him.
Rhett’s guitar softly plays as he sings his thoughtful lyrics, “You shoulda slammed the door, changed the lock and said, adios / To my selfish heart, tore it apart and left me alone / Don't know why you were patient and wasted good savin' on me / Maybe angels don't always have wings." The song shows his incredible vocal range. From deeper tones to falsetto, Rhett hits every note beautifully. “Angels” is a live performance you will want to see, Rhett fan or not.
Rhett was recently nominated this year for Best Country Song at the Grammy Awards for “Country Again." Rhett’s album Where We Started is sure to take home awards in the coming years, especially for “Angels”. He will head on the road in June for his “Bring The Bar To You” tour.
