With a centered focus and renewed clarity, award-winning singer/songwriter 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, his upcoming fifth studio double album COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A (The Valory Music Co.) out April 30 began to take shape. Lead single “What’s Your Country Song” marks Thomas Rhett’s 17th career No. 1 single and 11th consecutive No. 1 – the longest active streak in the format. 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.

His No. 1 hit “Break Up In The End” was named the NSAI Song of the Year (2019), and the hitmaker has over 1 Billion on demand streams as well as numerous songwriting honors including being named the NSAI Songwriter/Artist of the Year (2016) and Music Row’s Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year during his debut (2015). The Georgia native has toured with some of the biggest superstars in country music including Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and officially became a headliner on his own Reason To Drink Tours in 2018.

Gabby Barrett is setting the trend as the ACM New Female Artist of the Year.
