Current hit: “Slow Down Summer” by Thomas Rhett
Linked to: “Time In A Bottle” by Jim Croce/1973
Because: Both songs are ballads, and both are nostalgic reflections about time: how quickly it passes, a reminder to savor the moment, longing for a less hectic life, and more lazy-hazy summer days.
Thomas Rhett wrote “Slow Down Summer” with his father, Nashville Songwriter Hall of Famer Rhett Akins.
Ranking: #33 on the Country chart.
