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.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
