NASHVILLE, TN (February 2, 2016) – Following six weeks of holding the #1 position on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, radio has immediately added Thomas Rhett’s “T-Shirt,” now officially available via Play MPE as the third single from his ACM-nominated album TANGLED UP (The Valory Music Co.). With five consecutive chart-toppers that have taken him “from a promised next big thing to actually being it” (Noisey), the new track has been a fan-favorite as it “offers plenty of unapologetic fun” (Rolling Stone) since the album’s release.
“I couldn’t be more pumped that Country radio jumped all over ‘T-Shirt’ because I have wanted to put it out since my first record,” shares Thomas Rhett. “Everyone has been in that fun ‘honeymoon’ phase of dating, which is what this song is all about. It’s already a staple in our set each night – the fans got into it as soon as we added it and it’s just one of those I let loose on and have a good time.”
The new music follows yesterday’s announcement of the 51st Annual ACM Awards nominations, where Thomas Rhett serves as a top nominee, with three nominations for Album of the Year (TANGLED UP), Single Record of the Year for the record-breaking PLATINUM six-week #1 “Die A Happy Man” and New Male Vocalist of the Year.
Continuing the momentum, Thomas Rhett serves as direct support for Jason Aldean’s WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR, where fans can “expect a high-energy show” (Bismarck Tribune) from his “throw-everything-at-the-wall mentality” (Billboard). Dates pick back up this week in Southaven, MS (2/4), Oklahoma City, OK (2/5) and Columbia, MO (2/6). For more information and for a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit www.thomasrhett.com.
