NASHVILLE, TN (March 23, 2021) – Reigning ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year and 4x current nominee Thomas Rhett has earned his 17th No. 1 single with “What’s Your Country Song” as the song summits Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart and both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck Charts, while previously earning the top spot at Canadian Country Radio. The record-breaking smash co-written alongside Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Parker Welling is Thomas Rhett’s 11th consecutive No.1 on Mediabase, leading the charge with the longest active streak in the format. Additionally, the song celebrated as “an anthem with an uplifting mood” (Music Row), serves as the lead single from the MULTI-PLATINUM performer’s upcoming fifth studio double album COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A (The Valory Music Co.), set to release on April 30 and available for pre-order.
“I can hardly wrap my mind around seventeen… what an unreal way to kick off this new chapter of music,” Thomas Rhett said. “I’m so grateful to the fans and radio for reacting to this one right away after I played a little of it on Instagram basically a year ago – it’s crazy to see it all come full circle. I cannot wait to share the rest with y’all!”
With a centered focus and renewed clarity, Thomas Rhett began teasing songs as they were written on social media over the past year, receiving a frenzy of positive feedback from fans. With that, COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A began to take shape. Lead single “What’s Your Country Song” marks Thomas Rhett’s 17th career No. 1 single. As “few singers have played a larger role in defining the sound of country music over the past half-dozen years” (Rolling Stone), Thomas Rhett’s four previous studio albums have spawned nearly 10 BILLION total career streams while he’s received two CMA Triple Play awards 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. “At the top of his musical game” (Winnipeg Free Press), the in-demand superstar has headlined multiple nationwide and international tours as well as some of music’s biggest festivals.
