Thomas Rhett Drops 2 Holiday Tunes, “The Christmas Song” & “Christmas in the Country” [Listen]

Thomas Rhett is getting into the yuletide spirit with the release of his first-ever holiday tunes, “The Christmas Song” and “Christmas in the Country.”

“Christmas in the Country” is a new song that was penned by TR, David Garcia, Ashley Gorley and Chris Tomlin, while “The Christmas Song” is a holiday classic made popular by Nat King Cole in 1946.

“Christmas is hands-down my favorite time of year,” said Thomas Rhett. “We have so many Christmas traditions in our family that include a lot of festive music, but I’ve never recorded anything myself. Lauren has wanted me to make some Christmas music for a long time, so this year felt like the right time to finally take a stab at writing something and to put my own twist on one of the all-time classics.”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
