Excitement surges worldwide for Thomas Rhett as 2016 begins.

Featured on his sophomore album Tangled Up (The Valory Music Co.), “Crash and Burn” lights up the all-genre BBC Radio 2 chart with his first single released in the UK earning a coveted A-list spot ahead of Coldplay and One Direction. With notable airplay on the biggest radio station in Europe, “Crash and Burn” boasts nearly 10 million impacts across all UK stations to date, intensifying the #1 Country hit and Platinum-selling status previously garnered in the US.

Earlier this week, Thomas Rhett earned his fifth consecutive chart-topper as “Die A Happy Man” continued to dominate the US and Canada Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase Country charts. The track is positioned in the iTunes all-genre Top 10 and remains the best-selling digital Country single over the last nine weeks.

Following his first headline run with the 2015 CMT ON TOUR, Thomas Rhett has been named as direct support on Jason Aldean’s WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR. He will continue to take the stage across the globe with select dates this year already announced, including a main stage performance at C2C in Europe this March and Dauphin Countryfest in Canada on July 2.
