Thomas Rhett Debuts At #1
Thomas Rhett claims his second chart-topping debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart this week with Center Point Road. According to Billboard, the album earned 76,000 equivalent album units, 45,000 of which were in album sales. Both totals represent the biggest weeks of 2019 for any country album, and it marks the first country album to hit Number One on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart in 2019.
Thomas thanked fans on social media.
Over the weekend at CMA Music Festival, Thomas told us he’s been loving the feedback from fans.
“I’ve been blown away by the reaction. It’s been really cool to be able to put out the project as a whole and have people listen to more than just the four or five instant grat tracks and really kind of get a sense of what the fans are digging on the record cause it really helps us at that point figure out what singles are gonna come next, so it’s been a relief and just like really, really exciting to put a full-length album out again. I can’t believe we’ve done four.”
Thomas and Kelsea Ballerini again co-host the upcoming special CMA Fest, set to air in August on ABC.
