Cullmantimes.com — Rock the South kicked off its artist announcements today with Thomas Rhett set to perform when the country music festival returns June 1st-2nd to Heritage Park, organizers said.
Rhett scored his first No. 1 hit in 2013 with “It Goes Like This,” introducing a sound that mixed the southern swagger of county music with pop hooks, R&B grooves, soulful strut, and the anything-goes attitude of rock. Since then, he;s Rhett has scored eight chart-topping singles and landed as a headliner of massive arenas.
Much of his new album “Life Changes” was written on the road while Rhett toured the U.S. for his platinum-selling second record, Tangled Up. Released in 2015, Tangled Up marked a turning point in his career, spawning four No. 1 singles and one Grammy-nominated smash: “Die a Happy Man.” A tender, personal song written about his wife, “Die a Happy Man” topped the charts for six weeks, earning awards from the CMA, ACM and Billboard Music Awards along the way.
