Thomas Rhett Reaches a Career Milestone, Earning His 20th Number 1 Hit In Less Than 10 years
Country superstar Thomas Rhett reaches a career milestone, earning his 20th chart-topping hit in less than 10 years with “Half of Me (feat. Riley Green)." Off his critically-acclaimed sixth album Where We Started (The Valory Music Co.), the song tops both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week making it the longest active consecutive No. 1 streak on the Country Aircheck chart.
“20 No. 1's in 10 years is mind-blowing,” said Thomas Rhett. “The support since 2012 by radio, songwriters, my team and all the fans has been incredible. This is insane and I’m so grateful for this wild ride! I can’t wait to see what the next decade has in store."
In 2013, Thomas Rhett scored his first No. 1 single, “It Goes Like This.” He wrote the track with his father Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip, and Jimmy Robbins, standing out as the first No. 1 song written by a father and son. From there, Thomas Rhett began racking up the hits including the record-breaking “Die A Happy Man,” before collaborating on chart toppers like “Craving You (feat. Maren Morris),
“Beer Can’t Fix (feat. Jon Pardi)," and “Be A Light (feat. Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin & Keith Urban)," to raise money for MusicCares. To relive all 20 of Thomas Rhett’s No. 1 songs over the last decade, click here.
