Thomas Rhett Takes Over Taylor Swift’s 8 Year Reign For A 6-Week #1

Thomas Rhett

Thomas Rhett declares the top spot once again on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week as his megahit “Die A Happy Man” spends its sixth consecutive week at No. One. The last artist to hold the same reign over the chart was Taylor Swift exactly eight years ago with “Our Song.”

“I seriously can’t believe this song has spent six weeks at No. one,” said Thomas Rhett. “When you put a song out there as personal as this, you hope it connects and resonates with people. But I could never have imagined it would connect like this! And to mirror an achievement not seen since Taylor Swift – someone I really respect as a songwriter, performer and entertainer – is just mind blowing.”

“The biggest country song in the nation right now” (Omaha World-Herald) continues to serve as the best-selling country digital track and simultaneously tops Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for an 11th week. Thomas Rhett continues to bring his signature “sizzling fusion of soul, funk, R&B and country as his own” (Rolling Stone) to his live show as direct support for Jason Aldean’s WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR, where he has proven he knows “how to please a full house” (City County Observer).

Miranda Lambert is in good company on Forbes list of Highest Paid Women in music. The singer comes in at number 8 with $28 Million. Miranda comes in behind Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Brittany Spears, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Fleetwood Mac and Lady Gaga, but before Mariah Carey and Rihanna.

Looks like she’s managed to end 2015 on top.
