Single Review: Thomas Rhett - Get Me Some Of That

With "Get Me Some Of That," Thomas Rhett has the enviable position of following-up a massively successful multi-week #1 hit ("It Goes Like This"). Continue on here to see if we think "Get Me Some Of That" will be able to match the previous hit's success.

On the surface, "Get Me Some of That" could be the kind of song that would fill out a lot of spaces on such a check list, but once again, it has more to offer than usual. Amid the lines that seeme clichéd on the surface are plenty of enjoyable lines, such as "Tryin' to come up with somethin' smooth / And waitin' on the right time to make my move," "Got me spinnin' around, I ain't even on the dance floor," and "like your college major was twistin' and tearin' up Friday nights" that lend a playfulness and wit beyond other songs of this sort. Also helping immensely is the laid-back production — no loud rock guitars and thudding hip-hop beat, just a sturdy mid-tempo rhythm, and few other discernible instruments besides a few tasteful guitar runs. Rhett keeps the delivery laid-back and smooth, managing to make a line like "shakin' that money maker" sound complimentary instead of crass — not to mention more credible when coming from the mouth of a 23-year-old than, say, 37-year-old Luke Bryan.

"Get Me Some of That" isn't a show-stopper, but it is commendable in continuing Thomas Rhett's streak of sturdy, radio-friendly fare. While "Beer with Jesus" suggested that he is capable of a deeper, more meaningful song, "It Goes Like This" and now "Get Me Some of That" show that the beer/girl/truck tropes aren't completely worn out yet. The younger Rhett clearly has the skills to do something deeper, but he's also young enough to sell the party songs and not have them feel overly calculated. I trust that he won't stay this route forever, but for now, there's no reason that he can't keep partying for at least a little longer.
