Single Girl

Album: Tangled Up (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Thomas Rhett has been happily married to his wife Lauren since 2012 but this song finds him taking on the role of a single guy. He explained to the Las Vegas Review Journal: "I still have a bunch of friends who are single, and you meet girls on the road that are single in your meet-and-greet and they always talk about, 'Man, I want to find a love so bad, like you and Lauren's. I just haven't found the right one yet.'"

    "Basically, it's me narrating in the voice of this guy saying, 'Single girl, you know, I know you're out there on the run and you're looking for all this stuff and you think you found something. But if you would just kind of turn around and look in my direction, I promise that I could make you happy.'"
  • Rhett penned this track with songwriters Ben Hayslip, Ross Copperman and his father Rhett Akins.
