How many people can say they know a true-to-life professional musician who has an album out on iTunes and in the stores? Well, if you know Rhett Uhland you can count yourself as one of those people because on Friday, April 27th, as Rhett’s first album, Always Coming Home hit the streets and online shopping venues such as iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon.
According to his manager, and cousin, Tori Uhland, “Watching Rhett record this album in Nashville on music row was a surreal experience. None of us could believe it was really happening!”
There are two songs that stand out on the album, according to Uhland, that are the heart and soul behind the message Rhett was trying to portray. “In my opinion, the songs that tell the best stories are Always Coming Home and American Dream.”
Uhland’s Always Coming Home was the first song written when he was in high school, and it paints a good portrait of small town life and what it was like growing up in Eads.
American Dream talks about farm life --- a life that can be pretty tough most of the time --- but it is also a really good life, and according to Tori, “A life to take pride in.”
Both songs mean a lot to Rhett’s entire family, a large and very close farming and ranching group. Tori sums it up for the family, “We are all so proud of him for telling the American Dream story and for chasing this music dream.”
As of today, the album is ranked #185 on the Country-Music charts and many locals have been excited to find various ways to get their hands on the coveted songs.
