Thomas Rhett first met his wife, Lauren, when they were first graders in Valdosta, Georgia. They briefly dated at 15 and although that initial attempt at a relationship didn't work out, they remained close friends. Both had serious romances with other people in their late teens, and when Lauren and her boyfriend split, Thomas asked her out again. Within six months, they were engaged.
This heartwarming song finds Rhett predicting their love story on the onset of their romantic relationship. He released "Us Someday" as a single from Where We Started on February 11, 2022.
Rhett wrote the song with his father, Rhett Akins, and with Jesse Frasure and Amy Wadge. He said he penned it from the perspective of his 19-year-old-self telling Lauren, "I know you think this is crazy, but I believe all of these things are going to happen for us."
Rhett added that most of the things he foretells, such as marriage, kids, and family road trips, actually happened, "which is just the wildest thing."
Jesse Frasure and Dann Huff's production opens with an unexpected string arrangement before Rhett enters with his moving love story. The country star adores how different "Us Someday" sounds to all the other Where We Started tracks. "I hope people will listen and be able to relate with their own relationships," he said.
