Thomas Rhett Charts 20th Number One Hit
Thomas Rhett heads into Thanksgiving day tomorrow (Thursday, November 24th) with one more thing to be grateful for — his 20th Number One hit in less than a decade with this week’s chart-topper, “Half of Me,” featuring Riley Green. The song tops both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week making it the longest active consecutive Number One streak on the Country Aircheck chart, according to a release.
Thomas said, “20 No. Ones in 10 years is mind-blowing. 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 scored his first Number One single, “It Goes Like This.” He co-wrote the track with his father Rhett Akins, along with Ben Hayslip and Jimmy Robbins, standing out as the first Number One song written by a father and son.
