Rhett reaches the summit again

Monday, February 23, 2015 – Thomas Rhett is not third time lucky because he also went to number one with his firest two singles. Rhett announced today that his current hit "Make Me Wanna" will be atop the Billboard charts this week,

Rhett takes over the top of the Country Airplay chart from Florida Georgia Line's "Sun Daze." This is Rhett's first number one as the artist and songwriter. Rhett previously hit the top with "Get Me Some of That" and "It Goes Like This."

"This song is the perfect bridge between 'It Goes Like This' and the new stuff we've been working on," said Rhett. "So, this kind of support from country radio, my friends in the industry and the fans who have been relentlessly supporting me has got me really pumped for what's next."

Rhett is touring this year with Florida Georgia Line.
