In a Minute

Album: It Goes Like This (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Thomas Rhett penned this song with his father Rhett Atkins and Ashley Gorley. He explained: "I am a strong believer in God and this song, I feel, will speak to people because life is so short and unpredictable. You never know when you're going to leave this earth so I think you have to enjoy every minute. That is why I put this song on the record because just like 'Beer With Jesus,' it gives perspective to live and how it changes in a minute."
  • Both "In a Minute" and "It Goes Like This" are expressions that Thomas Rhett regularly uses.
