Learned It From the Radio

Album: Tangled Up (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This Nicolle Galyon, Ashley Gorley and Jimmy Robbins penned tune stood out to Rhett upon first listen. "When you're 15, 16, 17 and hanging out on the weekend with all your friends, you listen to the radio, and it's where you learn a bunch of stuff about who you are, about love, about break-ups and about leaving home when you're 18," he told Radio.com. "So that song really related to me, and I could feel it relating with a lot of other people."

    "We played it a few times live, just to get it out there on YouTube and stuff, and you watch people's faces and they're like, 'Man, that line was me at 16 or 17.' Or at 25," he continued. "That's what I loved about that song, that I could just feel it being such a relatable song all around the country."
