Gold certified “Look What God Gave Her” from history-making Center Point Road album
On the heels of making history with his fourth studio album Center Point Road (The Valory Music Co.), claiming the biggest streaming debut week ever for a country album, while also earning his second consecutive No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart in less than two years, reigning ACM Awards Male Artist of the Year Thomas Rhett has notched his 13th career chart-topper with “Look What God Gave Her.” Debuting on Saturday Night Live to widespread applause and the highest chart debut of his career, the “buoyant” (Rolling Stone) single simultaneously earns RIAA gold certification as it summits both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Airplay charts this week, while also tallying a second week atop the Canadian Country Airplay charts.
“Thirteen…what an incredible way to celebrate this chapter of new music,” Rhett shares. “This year has already been beyond anything I could have dreamed of, I’m just so grateful and blown away by the continued support.”
Additionally, to critics’ and fans’ delight, Rhett has announced “Remember You Young” as his next single. Co-written by hit-makers Thomas Rhett, Jesse Frasure and Ashley Gorley, the song is available at country radio July 15th. Having “comfortably grown into his role as a star with something to say” (Billboard), the “sweet homage to Thomas Rhett’s friends and family” (American Profile) is an instant standout as one of the album’s “most affecting songs” (Rolling Stone). Watch the broadcast debut of the new single on NBC Today’s 2019 Citi Concert Series here.
In related news, the in-demand entertainer has earned two 2019 Teen Choice Awards nominations including Choice Country Artist and Choice Country Song for the freshly minted chart-topper, “Look What God Gave Her.” Fans can vote online ahead of the live show on Sunday, August 11th on Fox at 8 pm ET.
