Thomas Rhett looks back at the first moments of a blossoming relationship in his 2017 single "Unforgettable." This number one country airplay hit was written by Rhett, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley, and Shane McAnally.

It's no surprise that Rhett has a way with words in this country music song all about romance. This cut follows the themes of his previous hits "Die A Happy Man" and "T-Shirt," but turns up the nostalgia by looking back to when the love story first began. With imagery that includes throwing back a fruity drink at the beach, it's a song tailor-made for the tail end of summer.

The song's lyric video also features clips of Rhett's life, from carefree vacations to nights spent entertaining thousands on the road. His wife, Lauren, and adopted daughter Willa also make appearances in the clip.

Lyrics

It was the 14th of October

And that t-shirt off your shoulder

I was drunk, said I was sober

And you said "yeah, right"

We were talkin' for a minute

Then some guy tried to cut in

You took my hand and we pretended

Like I was your guy

Oh, and I tried to guess your middle name

For thirty minutes bet we played that game

That mango-rita you were drinkin'

And that Coldplay song that you were singin'

And I bet right now you're probably thinkin'

That it's crazy I remember every detail, but I do

From your blue jeans to your shoes

Girl, that night was just like you

Unforgettable

We were dancin', we were buzzin'

Takin' shots like it was nothin'

Did the runnin' man, you loved it

Yeah, you laughed out loud

You brushed away your blonde hair

And you kissed me out of nowhere

I can still show you the spot

Where everything went down

Oh, I told you I was gonna marry you

You probably didn't think that it was true

That mango-rita you were drinkin'

And that Coldplay song that you were singin'

And I bet right now you're probably thinkin'

That it's crazy I remember every detail, but I do

I can still smell your perfume

Girl, that night was just like you

Unforgettable

Oh, that night was just like you, baby

I can taste the mango-rita you were drinkin'

And it feels just like it was last weekend

That we jumped in

Right off the deep end

That mango-rita you were drinkin'

And that Coldplay song that you were singin'

And I bet right now you're probably thinkin'

That it's crazy I remember every detail, but I do

I can still smell your perfume

Girl, that night was just like you

Unforgettable

From your blue jeans to your shoes

Girl, that night was just like you

Unforgettable
