Thomas Rhett invites fans to experience new album at CMA Fest

Limited number of tickets on sale Monday for one-time-only stripped-down performance

Thomas Rhett is bringing his fourth studio album — Center Point Road, available May 31st via The Valory Music Co. — to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for a special one-time-only stripped-down performance in the round during CMA Music Fest on June 8th.

Fans are invited to an up-close-and-personal set from the singer/songwriter revealing stories behind brand new songs, while also delivering the smash hits and fan-favorites that shaped him into the artist he is today in a rare stripped-down, in-the-round setting. Longtime fans will recognize the favorite B-stage layout, inspired by Thomas Rhett’s live show where he shares stories behind the songs, connecting him to every seat in the house. Tickets are $25 and include a copy of the upcoming release with proceeds benefiting music education through the CMA Foundation. Tickets are available beginning Monday, May 13th at 10 am CT for fan club members via Thomas Rhett’s Home Team app, noon CT for general public on or

“We’ve been able to do album release parties all over the country, but to host one in my own backyard during CMA Fest when Country Music fans are here from all over the world is incredible,” Rhett states. “Nashville is home to the memories and stories from this album that made me into the person I am today, and to also be able to help raise money for Music Education while we celebrate this release makes it extra special.”

Additionally this week, the “all around star” (Forbes) was nominated for Male Video of The Year for “Life Changes” at this year’s CMT Music Awards, taking place on June 5th in Nashville. Later this week, Rhett, “at the top of his musical game” (Winnipeg Free Press) transitions from the Canadian leg of his Life Changes Tour in Edmonton (May 10th) and Vancouver (May 15th) to heating things up stateside on the Very Hot Summer Tour beginning May 17th with special guests Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson and Rhett Akins.
