Hit Spends Back-to-Back Weeks atop Multiple Charts, Marking His Third No. 1 off Life Changes
Thomas Rhett continues to generate back-to-back chart-toppers, notching his 10th career No. 1 with his latest single “Marry Me.” The stirring hit is spending its second straight week at No. 1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts, also marking its third week at No. 1 in Canada. Following Life Changes’ “Craving You” and “Unforgettable” also peaking at the top chart position, “Marry Me” marks his third No. 1 hit in the past year, more than any other country artist.
“It is unbelievable to me that the fans and country radio have gotten behind me for 10 No. 1’s,” Rhett states. “As an artist and songwriter, there is nothing better than knowing and feeling your music connect with people. I’m just incredibly grateful.”
Thomas Rhett was just named iHeartRadio’s Country Artist of the Year for the second year in a row, following his recent CMA Triple Play award for penning three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period (“Die A Happy Man,” “Star of the Show” and Michael Ray’s “Think A Little Less”). The reigning ACM Awards Male Vocalist of the Year will defend his title at next month’s 2018 ceremony, where he has garnered six total nominations and will also vie for Album of the Year for Life Changes as both artist and producer, Vocal Event of the Year for “Craving You” (featuring Maren Morris) as both artist and producer and Video of the Year for “Marry Me.”
Thomas Rhett’s third albumLife Changes (The Valory Music Co.) is the biggest, boldest-sounding record of his career, filled with a diverse batch of songs united by the “consistency of their craft” (Variety) as he stretches his sound to new limits. Highlighting his “detailed style of songwriting” (Rolling Stone),Life Changes was an instant hit, debuting at No. 1on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, marking the first Country release to take the top spot in 2017. The release also drew a 2018 GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album and has been streamed more than 400 million times. Thomas Rhett is gearing up to bring his “commanding stage presence” (Rolling Stone) to arenas across the country on his Life Changes Tour 2018, kicking off April 5th in Tulsa, OK.
