“Christmas is hands-down my favorite time of year,” said Thomas Rhett. “We have so many Christmas traditions in our family that include a lot of festive music, but I’ve never recorded anything myself. Lauren has wanted me to make some Christmas music for a long time, so this year felt like the right time to finally take a stab at writing something and to put my own twist on one of the all-time classics.”
Having “comfortably grown into his role as a star with something to say” (Billboard), Thomas Rhett earned a Best Country Album GRAMMY® Awards nomination today for CENTER POINT ROAD (The Valory Music Co.), his second consecutive No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart in less than two years.

The follow up to his GRAMMY®-nominated, PLATINUM-selling No. 1 album LIFE CHANGES that has surpassed one billion streams, CENTER POINT ROAD is a return to Thomas Rhett’s roots and connects fans to his past, weaving together autobiographical stories with familiar sounds that have propelled his meteoric career. The album’s PLATINUM lead single, “Look What God Gave Her” was first introduced on SNL and recently soared to No. 1, following a slew of RIAA-certified PLATINUM and GOLD chart-toppers, bringing Thomas Rhett’s No. 1 tally at Country radio to 13 as his “emotional epic” (Billboard) current Top 5 single “Remember You Young” continues its fast climb at radio.
