Thomas Rhett has hit No. 1 on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart with Slow Down Summer, earning Rhett his 13th consecutive chart-topper and 19th career No. 1. The song was penned by Thomas Rhett, his father Rhett Akins, Sean Douglas, Jesse Frasure, and Ashley Gorley.
Rhett also just released his new single “Half Of Me” featuring Riley Green, written by Thomas Rhett, Rhett Akins, William Bundy and Josh Thompson. Said Rhett: “Today is a really cool day. I’m pretty blown away to be celebrating my 19th No. 1 with ‘Slow Down Summer’ and the release of my new single ‘Half Of Me.’ I wrote both of these songs with my dad, which is special to me, and several other truly incredible songwriters. I hope fans have as much fun singing along to ‘Half Of Me’ as we did writing it.” Shared Green: “Thomas Rhett always puts out great songs, and I was excited when he asked me to sing on this one. It’s going to be a fun beer-drinking song for the summer.”
Rhett is also about to hit the road on his headlining summer tour dubbed the Bring The Bar To You Tour, which will feature support from Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.
