THOMAS RHETT STANDS OUT AS ONLY THE THIRD ARTIST IN OVER THREE YEARS TO HOLD FOUR WEEKS AT #1 ON THE BILLBOARD COUNTRY AIRPLAY CHART
Nashville, TN (January 11, 2016) – THOMAS RHETT continues to push “the genre into exciting new territory” (Jody Rosen, New York Times) as he dominates the radio charts again this week spending a fourth consecutive week at #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his PLATINUM certified hit “Die A Happy Man.” Since the beginning of 2012, only Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay” and Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” have accomplished the same long-standing reign. The track also maintains a third week at the top of the Mediabase radio chart and continues to be the best-selling Country digital track for a 10th week since release just 16 weeks ago.
Off his sophomore album TANGLED UP (The Valory Music Co.), the mega-hit has already been dubbed a “strong contender for every song of the year title” (All Access) and became his fifth consecutive chart-topper proving he’s “a standout among a crowded crop of acts” (Billboard).
After recently wrapping his first headlining run with the 2015 CMT ON TOUR, Thomas Rhett will continue to confirm “he's on his way to superstardom" (Patriot Ledger) as he will serve as direct support on Jason Aldean’s WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR beginning this Thursday (1/14) in Moline, IL. Additionally, the singer/songwriter has teamed with Snap Fitness for a year-long partnership as the health and wellness brand’s spokesperson, where he will host boot camps in select tour markets and social media challenges throughout the year.
