“Headlining for the first time has been pretty unreal,” said Thomas Rhett who launched his first headline arena tour in 2017. “It’s wild to me that we will be launching our second year of headline shows and are bringing out some of my favorite artists in music right now. I think the fans have come to expect that we’re going to be on our feet and having the time of our lives every single night.”
Thomas Rhett’s third album LIFE CHANGES (The Valory Music Co.) 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 #1 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. Thomas Rhett was 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 #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.
