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."

Rhett is touring this year with Florida Georgia Line.

With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band. Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»
