“Angels (Don’t Always Have Wings)” tops the country charts

On the heels of earning 20 No. 1 hits in a matter of just ten years, multi-platinum country star Thomas Rhett just cinched his 21st career No. 1 with “Angels (Don’t Always Have Wings)” on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart and 19th No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart.

First heard on Rhett’s sixth studio album Where We Started with the title “Angels,” the hitmaker recently released a newer, amped-up version to radio. The track was written by Rhett alongside Julian Bunetta, Teddy Swims and Josh Thompson.

“I feel like I’ve been pretty known for love songs throughout my career, but I think we did a good job of portraying love from a different perspective on this one, so that makes it really special for me. This is really an ode to my wife, and on a grander scale, this is for that person in everybody’s life that has stuck with them through thick and thin,” Rhett shares. “So thank you to all those people. It’s really cool to have been celebrating 20 number ones this year and now to be celebrating my 21st career number one is crazy. I’m just really humbled and grateful and can’t wait for the next ten years.”

The hitmaker is also preparing for his upcoming 20 Number Ones release, which drops September 29th and features a limited edition vinyl collection as well as a special box set bundle. Rhett is also back on the road for his Home Team Tour 23, which sold out all 40 shows.
