THOMAS RHETT ANNOUNCES "MARRY ME" AS NEW SINGLE, FOLLOWING BACK-TO-BACK CHART-TOPPERS FROM LIFE CHANGES
ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Announced as Halftime Performer
During Dallas Cowboys’ Iconic Annual Thanksgiving Day Game
Nashville, TN - November 17, 2017 - Current AMA nominee Thomas Rhett's newest single "Marry Me" ships to radio today, following a hot streak as “Craving You” and “Unforgettable” - the first two singles from his Billboard 200 Chart-Topper LIFE CHANGES (The Valory Music Co.) - soared to No. One, each faster than the one before and with RIAA GOLD certification. Known for his “detailed style of songwriting” (Rolling Stone), Thomas Rhett often draws from personal experience when it comes to penning a new song, but for “Marry Me," he flips the tables alongside hit co-writers Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally, presenting a non-autobiographical “heartbreaking twist” (Associated Press) to the track.
"'Marry Me is one of my favorite tracks on the record," said Thomas Rhett. "It's my big ‘what if’ song. I wrote it from the perspective of if I had never told my wife how I felt about her all those years ago. I probably would have been sitting at her wedding watching her marry someone else. Heartbreaking thought and thankfully I DID tell her how I felt- but it makes for a great song concept that so many people can relate to.”
Thomas Rhett is set to perform LIVE from AT&T Stadium during the nationally televised halftime of the Dallas Cowboys game (3:30pm CT/CBS) against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving Day, kicking off The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign. Donations to the campaign help provide shelter and meals for the homeless and hungry and Christmas toys for millions of children, in addition to numerous other social service programs The Salvation Army provides year-round.
In September, Thomas Rhett released his third album LIFE CHANGES, the biggest, boldest-sounding record of his career, filled with a diverse batch of songs united by the "consistency of their craft” (Variety) as he stretches his sound to new limits. Highlighting his “detailed style of songwriting” (Rolling Stone), the new release debuted at No. One on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, marking the first Country release to take the top spot in 2017. This week, he wrapped an electric run in the UK which included capacity venues in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast, marking 31 total sell-outs on his in-demand debut headlining HOME TEAM TOUR this year. Thomas Rhett recently announced he’ll roll the momentum in to next year on his LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018, set to kick off in April.
