The CMT On Tour headliner continues to be applauded for his “impressive pipes” and “forward thinking” live show (Sioux City Journal) as he keeps “pushing up against country’s music boundaries” (Associated Press). Repeatedly tallying sold-out shows including New York City, critics have confidently noted that there is “no doubt he’s on his way to superstardom” (Patriot Ledger). Thomas Rhett will continue to “charm through his set” (Village Voice) with upcoming CMT On Tour stops this weekend in Pikeville, KY (11/19), St. Louis, MO (11/20) and Independence, MO (11/21).

The holidays are for making wishes come true and thanks to two Country superstars – Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett – a 14-year-old Tennessee girl received the gift of her dreams during the making of “CMA Country Christmas.”

Hosted for the sixth time by Jennifer Nettles, “CMA Country Christmas” airs Thursday, Dec. 3 (9:00-11:00 PM/ET) on ABC.
“CMA Country Christmas” provides a platform to shine a national spotlight on the ground-breaking work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Kinsee, who has been a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since she was eight years old, was treated to a surprise private performance of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” by Eldredge and Thomas Rhett, which was taped for the two-hour special.

“Our industry, artists, and Country radio have a strong connection to St. Jude and we are honored to provide this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Kinsee while we also bring important recognition to the Hospital,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer.

When she was eight-years-old, Kinsee became sick while on vacation with her grandparents. After blood work at her pediatrician’s office revealed she had an elevated white cell count but almost no red blood cells or platelets, Kinsee was diagnosed with leukemia. Her pediatrician referred her to St. Jude, where she was diagnosed with early t-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Doctors often send their toughest cases to St. Jude, because St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for some of the most aggressive childhood cancers. Her treatment included chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, and radiation therapy. Within several weeks of starting chemotherapy, her cancer was in remission. Kinsee is finished with treatment and her cancer has been in remission for five years. She is now in eighth grade and loves being part of her cheerleading squad, Country Music, and banana popsicles.

“Kinsee’s recovery is something we can all celebrate, because she represents the hope and happy ending we desire for all children – especially during the holidays,” Trahern said.

Taped at the Grand Ole Opry House, “CMA Country Christmas” is a celebration of the season featuring performances from Kelsea Ballerini, Dan + Shay, Mickey Guyton, Jewel, Charles Kelley, Martina McBride, David Nail, Nettles, Pentatonix, LeAnn Rimes, Darius Rucker, Brian Setzer, Michael W. Smith, and Lindsey Stirling.

Thomas Rhett will join forces with Snap Fitness, the world’s premier 24/7 fitness franchise, in 2016 for a year-long partnership brokered by FlyteVu. As the health and wellness brand’s spokesperson, the multi-Platinum selling artist will host boot camps in select tour markets throughout the year, as well as challenges on social media for fans across the country.

“Staying in shape is a crucial part of being able to put on a great live show for me,” shares Thomas Rhett. “So, when I’m on tour or have a day off at home, I try to find some time to work out everyday. It’s a lot easier when you have 24/7 options like Snap Fitness where the guys in the band and Lauren all can feel comfortable. It’ll be cool to team up to include fans in that part of our daily routine on the road too.”

“We are thrilled to have Thomas Rhett on board as a brand champion,” Snap Fitness Chief Marketing Officer Steele Smiley says. “This is the first major deal with a health/fitness brand in country music. It’s a perfect fit because Thomas embodies a commitment to a healthy lifestyle in the midst of a hectic schedule — something everyone can relate to.”

Thomas Rhett’s latest single “Die A Happy Man” has proven he “isn’t afraid to do things his own way” (Forbes) as fans continue to make it the top-selling digital Country song over the past three weeks. As “one of the album’s standout tracks” (Rolling Stone), the new single has cracked the Top 20 at Country radio only five weeks after release, following four consecutive No. ones.

Next week, he is slated to perform at the 49th Annual CMA Awards where he is also nominated for New Artist of the Year (8/7P CT on ABC).
