CAREER NO. ONE HITS

Back-to-Back No. Ones Off LIFE CHANGES, “Craving You” and “Unforgettable”

Nashville, TN – February 16, 2018 – ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Thomas Rhett commemorated his eighth and ninth career No. Ones
yesterday as he gathered with friends and family in Nashville to
celebrate his latest chart-toppers, the PLATINUM-selling “Craving You”
and GOLD-certified “Unforgettable.” Alongside “Craving You” songwriters
Dave Barnes and Julian Bunetta and “Unforgettable”’s Jesse Frasure,
Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally, Thomas Rhett was also surprised with a
plaque to commemorate LIFE CHANGES (The Valory Music Co.) earning RIAA
GOLD Certification for achieving 500,000 units sold less than six months
after its release. Additionally, his current Top 5 single “Marry Me”
has been certified GOLD as it continues to climb the Country radio
charts.

Next week, Thomas Rhett will be recognized as a CMA Triple Play Award
recipient, which honors songwriters who have penned 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”). The reigning iHeartRadio Music
Awards’ Country Artist of the Year will defend his title at next month’s 2018 Ceremony, where he’ll also vie for Country Song of the Year for “Unforgettable.”

Thomas Rhett’s third album LIFE CHANGES is the biggest, boldest-sounding
record of his career, filled with a diverse batch of songs united by
the “consistency of their craft” (Variety) as he stretches his sound to new limits. Highlighting his “detailed style of songwriting” (Rolling Stone),
LIFE CHANGES was an instant hit, debuting at No. One on the all-genre
Billboard 200 chart, marking the first Country release to take the top
spot in 2017. The release also drew a 2018 GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album
and has been streamed more than 400 million times. Following his
in-demand debut headlining HOME TEAM TOUR, Thomas Rhett is keeping up
the momentum with his LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018, set to kick off in April.
