As the temperatures heat up across the country, Thomas Rhett continues to sizzle across Country radio, notching his second consecutive #1 hit with “Get Me Some Of That.” This week the “soul-saver, now-and-later,” GOLD-certified tune tops both the Billboard and Mediabase Country Charts.
As a recording artist, Thomas Rhett previously scored his first-ever #1 with the multi-week, platinum-certified “It Goes Like This,” while his songwriting resume also boasts the two-week #1 “Round Here” for Florida Georgia Line.
The Georgia native shares in the celebration with his father Rhett Akins, who co-wrote both of the chart-toppers featured on Thomas Rhett’s debut album IT GOES LIKE THIS (The Valory Music Co.). Thomas received a special congratulatory message from his daddy, the other “Get Me Some Of That” writers – Cole Swindell, Michael Carter – and Luke Bryan. The song’s official, and fittingly coy video, has garnered over 6.9 million views and showcases his real-life love, wife Lauren.
Thomas Rhett also picked up a pair of 2014 CMT Music Awards’ nominations for “It Goes Like This” in the Video and Breakthrough Video of the Year categories.
