This year marked the release of Thomas Rhett’s fourth studio album Center Point Road which debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and made history earning the highest streaming debut for a country album ever, according to Nielsen Music. The follow up to his Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling No. 1 album Life Changes that has surpassed one billion streams, Center Point Road is a return to Thomas Rhett’s roots and connects fans to his past, weaving together autobiographical stories with familiar sounds that have propelled his meteoric career. The album’s platinum lead single, “Look What God Gave Her” was first introduced on SNL and recently soared to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, following a slew of RIAA-certified platinum and gold chart-toppers, bringing Thomas Rhett’s No. 1 tally at country radio to 13 as his “emotional epic” (Billboard) current Top 10 single “Remember You Young” continues its fast climb at radio. Thomas Rhett was named country radio’s most played artist of 2018, following a CMA Triple Play award for penning three No. 1 songs within a 12 month period, adding to his collection of trophies from the Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, Billboard Music Awards, CMT Music Awards and more.
