Country artist Thomas Rhett stepped into the spotlight at the tail end of the bro-country craze of the 2010s, boasting a sound that fused modern country with R&B. He made his mainstream breakthrough in 2015 with the release of his second studio album Tangled Up, debuting at the number six spot on the Billboard 200 on the strength of hit singles “Crash and Burn” and “Die a Happy Man.” The album’s commercial success officially put Rhett on the map as a promising country star. He maintained his presence at the top of the charts with subsequent releases Life Changes (2017) and Center Point Road (2019), both of which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200. Aside from writing his own hit material, Rhett has lent his songwriting skills to fellow country stars like Jason Aldean, Lee Brice, and Florida Georgia Line among others over the years. Rhett recently performed his song “Notice” on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday night. He also recently paid tribute to “Sesame Street” during the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C., which will air Sunday night on CBS.. Rhett has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, the first coming in 2016 for best country song with “Die A Happy Man.” A year later, he was nominated for best country album with “Life Changes,” which shares a name with another hit song.
