Box set: 20 Number Ones available Sept. 29

Why celebrate just one Number One hit when you can celebrate seven?  That’s exactly what Thomas Rhett did, June 6, honoring his cowriters on his most recent seven (of twenty, so far) chart-topping songs.

Jointly hosted by ASCAP and BMI, the party took place on the rooftop of BMI’s Nashville office, taking advantage of a warm spring afternoon.

The seven No. 1s are: “Remember You Young,” “Beer Can’t Fix (ft. Jon Pardi),” Be A Light (ft. Reba, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin, Keith Urban),” “Half of Me (ft. Riley Green),” “What’s Your Country Song,” “Country Again” and “Slow Down Summer.”

Studio Bank, Music, Arts & Entertainment Executive, Ron Cox, made a special donation presentation on behalf of Thomas Rhett and the songwriters to Love One International, which transforms the lives of children and families in Uganda through life-saving medical care and family preservation. The event, which was also sponsored by First Horizon, ended with a surprise plaque presentation to Rhett by his record label, BMLG/The Valory Music Co., for his milestone achievement of 20 career No. 1s.

The celebration was held one day ahead of the official announcement about the upcoming release of 20 Number Ones, A vinyl box set that includes all twenty of his No. 1 hits, plus the current single “Angels (Don’t Always Have Wings)” as a bonus track.  The release date for the box set is September 29, 2023. Pre-save / pre-order here.  An autographed vinyl set is available from the official store.

“To have 20 No. Ones is beyond wild - honestly more than I ever could have imagined,” reflected Thomas Rhett. "I’m grateful to have hit this milestone, but mostly it’s just exciting to look back at this journey so far and see how these songs represent the different chapters of my life — and hopefully the Home Team feels the same way. I want to say thank you to everyone for letting me be a part of the special moments in life - it’s hard to put into words what these past 10 years mean to me. Can’t wait for another great 10!”

The 20 Number Ones set forms an audio history of Rhett’s path from starting as a new artist to his current status as one of country music’s biggest stars. From his 2012 breakout with “It Goes Like This,” that journey has made Thomas Rhett the dictionary definition of the term “country singer-songwriter” – a thrilling entertainer with an equally sharp pen having written 15 of the 20 chart-toppers, making his own music and his own lane, constantly reinventing and moving the mainstream forward with each successive Number One.

Rhett has been honored with eight ACM Awards including Entertainer of the Year, two CMA Awards, five Grammy nominations, plus trophies from the CMT Music Awards, Billboard Awards and iHeartRadio Awards, in addition to being recognized with four CMA Triple Play awards for penning three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period. Additionally, the hitmaker has launched a tequila brand, Dos Primos, now offering Blanco, Reposado and Añejo variants.  Rhett is currently on the road for his Home Team Tour 23, which will hit a total of 40 cities in 27 states this summer ending with two nights at his hometown Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
