THOMAS RHETT SURPRISED IN IRVINE, CA, THIS WEEKEND

AS TANGLED UP EARNS PLATINUM TREATMENT

 

The Sophomore Record’s Multi-Week No. One “Die A Happy Man”
Marks Nielsen’s Most Streamed Song on 2016 Mid-Year List

 

As Thomas Rhett continues “pushing up against Country’s music boundaries” (Associated Press), his sophomore release TANGLED UP (The Valory Music Co.) follows the same path earning PLATINUM certification by the RIAA. On Saturday (8/20), before his set as direct support on Jason Aldean’s SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR in Irvine, CA, Thomas Rhett was surprised backstage by his team and friends with news of the new benchmark.

“It’s crazy to think about all the fans who are taking this journey with me and are helping make things like this happen,” said Thomas Rhett. “I’ve had an amazing year already, but finding out that the album went Platinum is one of the coolest moments so far.”

“One of country’s perennial ‘next big things’” (Noisey) continues to earn applause for TANGLED UP, with its newest “ultimate party song,” (Ottawa Citizen) “Vacation.” The album has already produced three chart-toppers including the newly minted “T-Shirt,” the 2X PLATINUM six-week No. one and ACM award-winning “Die A Happy Man” as well as the PLATINUM “Crash And Burn.”

“Bold song selections, borrowing choice trimmings from around the musical universe and pushing the country-music needle even farther.” – Billboard

“So eclectic—it’s almost like a mixtape with [his] voice as the common thread.” – Parade

“Mixes the classic vibes of a throwback record with the range and excitement of new-school arrangements.” – Rolling Stone

“Impressive, confident ability to mix and mingle with different genres on his sophomore release” – Yahoo!

“Carving a new niche – one that relies on musicianship and strong lyrics.” – Sioux City Journal

Thomas Rhett sparks “an ushering in of Country’s future” (Rolling Stone), as he dominates the Nielsen 2016 Mid-Year List with TANGLED UP, landing in the Top 5 Country albums, while “Die A Happy Man” was the most streamed song overall with more than 80 million streams. Proving he’s a “package deal” (CBS This Morning), Thomas Rhett continues on the road with sold-out headlining shows.
