Thomas Rhett scores 20th chart-topper

“Half Of Me” features Riley Green

Country superstar Thomas Rhett reaches a career milestone, earning his 20th chart-topping hit in less than 10 years with “Half of Me” featuring Riley Green. Off his critically-acclaimed sixth album Where We Started, the song tops both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week making it the longest active consecutive No. 1 streak on the Country Aircheck chart.

“Twenty No. 1’s in 10 years is mind-blowing,” Rhett shares. “The support since 2012 by radio, songwriters, my team and all the fans has been incredible. This is insane and I’m so grateful for this wild ride! I can’t wait to see what the next decade has in store.”

In 2013, Thomas Rhett scored his first No. 1 single, “It Goes Like This.” He wrote the track with his father Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip, and Jimmy Robbins, standing out as the first No. 1 song written by a father and son. From there, Rhett began racking up the hits including the record-breaking “Die A Happy Man,” before collaborating on chart toppers like “Craving You” featuring Maren Morris, “Beer Can’t Fix” featuring Jon Pardi, and “Be A Light” featuring Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin & Keith Urban to raise money for MusicCares.

He recently extended his Bring the Bar To You Tour into 2023 with dates scheduled for the top of next year in Canada as well as his Home Team 23 Tour, hitting 40 cities in 27 states next year.
