Thomas Rhett Scores Seventh No. 1 With “Star of the Show”

Thomas Rhett has earned his seventh No. 1 song with his latest single, “Star of the Show,” which is No. 1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts.

“I was in Houston this weekend for the Super Bowl when I got the news,” said Thomas Rhett in a statement. “It made for a really fun start to the game, even though my Falcons didn’t pull through in the end! I’ve always known this song needed to have its moment, so it’s really sweet to be able to celebrate it now and with Lauren and my dad.”

The Tennessee native wrote the hit song with his dad Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip, as an ode to his wife Lauren, who he’s known since kindergarten and married in 2012.

“‘Cause everywhere we go girl, you’re the star of the show / And everybody’s wondering and wanting to know / What’s your name, who’s that girl / With the prettiest smile in the world? / Oh, what gets me the most is you don’t even know / That you are, you are, you are the star of the show / The star of the show, baby,” Thomas Rhett sings in the chorus about his wife, who is also the lead female in the song’s video.

After finding that the song hit the top spot, TR went to his twitter page to thank radio and his fans for the success of the song he wrote three years ago.

TR’s previous No. 1s include “It Goes Like This,” “Get Me Some of That,” and “Make Me Wanna” from his debut album, It Goes Like This  and “Crash and Burn,” “Die a Happy Man,” and “T-Shirt” from his sophomore album, Tangled Up.

Congratulations to Thomas Rhett.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
