Story Behind the Song: Thomas Rhett, ‘Unforgettable’
Thomas Rhett released “Unforgettable” as the second single from his third studio album, Life Changes. The song followed Rhett’s No. 1 single “Craving You,” which features Maren Morris, and was inspired by the idea that men actually do remember those little details, especially when they are falling in love.
Below, Rhett shares with The Boot and other reporters the story behind the “unforgettable” tune.
I wrote that with Jesse Frasure, Shane McAnally and Ashley Gorley. We were on the bus. We started this song at 2:00 in the morning, rolling down the road, and all we had was the melody. We didn’t know what song we wanted to write. But as it started to progress, I remember Ashley spitting out the line of, “From your blue jeans to your shoes, that night was just like you / Unforgettable,” and we all just kind of freaked out and thought what a great hook and what a great twist that could be on a song.
The song is about a guy basically telling the girl that he loves, “I remember everything about the night that I met you. I remember what you were drinking, what you were wearing, what you smelled like, what the environment was like.” I think, a lot of the time, us guys get a bad rap for not remembering a lot of the small things. But if you can remember details of the night you fell in love with somebody, I think a girl would really like to hear that, and so that’s where the idea of the song came from.
