Thomas Rhett ‘Humbled and Honored’ by Success of ‘It Goes Like This’
Thomas Rhett has started with a song and ended with a number one hit. The singer landed his first-ever No. 1 recently with his ridiculously catchy latest single, ‘It Goes Like This.’
Not only that, but ‘It Goes Like This’ is also a top-seller on the iTunes Country Singles chart, with a million downloads already. The song is the title track off Rhett’s debut album, which is set for release on Oct. 29.
“I am so humbled and honored to have a No. 1 at country radio with this song,” Rhett says. “The response from fans and radio has been overwhelming. This is just one of those very special songs the moment I heard it I knew it would be a game changer. It has been incredible to hear people singing the words back to me from the audience every night.”
He recently had another reason to celebrate — as a songwriter. Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Round Here’ held a run at No. 1 on the country charts, as well. Rhett follows in the footsteps of his dad, Rhett Akins, as a successful songwriter — he has had two songs reach the Top 10 in the last month alone.
The ‘newcomer’ is currently wrapping up his time on the road with Jason Aldean on the 2013 Night Train Tour, but will be back on the road headlining the 2013 Taste of Country Christmas Tour starting Nov. 7.
