Fall Leg of LIFE CHANGES TOUR Launches with Sold-Out Opening Weekend
NASHVILLE, TN (September 17, 2018) – Current Multi-CMA Award nominee THOMAS RHETT has announced “Sixteen” as his next single. The “coming-of-age” (Huffington Post) song was written by Thomas Rhett, Sean Douglas and Joe Spargur and follows a four-pack of RIAA PLATINUM-certified No. 1 hits including “Craving You,” “Marry Me” and “Unforgettable” as well as the GOLD-certified “Life Changes" from his PLATINUM-certified album LIFE CHANGES (The Valory Music Co.). "For someone in the midst of so many personal and professional milestones, Thomas Rhett still finds time to look backward” (Rolling Stone) with his reflective songwriting.
“When you’re a kid, you can’t wait to grow up and reach that next milestone,” Thomas Rhett said. “But as you get older, you look back and think about how much fun you had at 16, 18 or 21. This song is a reminder to live in the moment and just soak up where you’re at in life."
Following a hot-ticket first run packed with sell-outs, Thomas Rhett brought back his LIFE CHANGES TOUR over the weekend, kicking off the fall leg with a completely sold-out first shows in Bangor, ME and Uncaseville, CT. E!

Thomas Rhett’s PLATINUM-certified third album LIFE CHANGES is the biggest, boldest-sounding record of his career, filled with a diverse batch of songs as he stretches his sound to new limits. Emphasizing his “detailed style of songwriting” (Rolling Stone), LIFE CHANGES was an instant hit upon its 2017 release, debuting at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, marking the first Country release to take the top spot last year. It also drew a 2018 GRAMMY® Awards nomination for Best Country Album and has been streamed more than 850 million times, delivering a slew of chart-toppers, bringing Thomas Rhett’s No. 1 tally to 11. After celebrating the one year anniversary and major success of the PLATINUM-certified release, the album is set to receive DELUXE treatment on September 21, giving fans access to new music. The hitmaker is currently nominated for three CMA Awards including Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for LIFE CHANGES and Music Video of the year for “Marry Me.” He was also recently named iHeartRadio’s Country Artist of the Year for the second year in a row, following a CMA Triple Play award for penning three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period (“Die A Happy Man,” “Star of the Show” and Michael Ray’s “Think A Little Less”), adding to his collection of trophies from the Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, Billboard Music Awards, CMT Music Awards and more. Fans can catch Thomas Rhett on tour this weekend in Providence, RI, Syracuse, NY and Manchester, NH. For tickets or additional information, visit ThomasRhett.com.
