Thomas Rhett claimed his second chart-topping debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart this week with Center Point Road.
Thomas thanked fans on Instagram writing, “Y’all!! This is absolutely unreal . . . thank you so much to everyone who has bought, streamed downloaded etc. such an honor to get to make music for you”
Over the weekend Thomas was at CMA Music Festival.
And he loves the feedback from fans.
Thomas said, “I’ve been blown away by the reaction. It’s been really cool to be able to put out the project as a whole and have people listen to more than just the four or five instant grat tracks and really kind of get a sense of what the fans are digging on the record cause it really helps us at that point figure out what singles are gonna come next, so it’s been a relief and just like really, really exciting to put a full-length album out again. I can’t believe we’ve done four.”
Thomas and Kelsea Ballerini will once again co-host the upcoming ABC-TV special CMA Fest, set to air in August.
Luke Combs has released his new EP, called The Prequel, featuring five new songs co-written by Luke. And of course, his latest single “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” is part of the album. The song debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs chart with 11 million streams—setting the record for the best first week of streaming ever for a country song.
