CMT today names Thomas Rhett as one of the premier country artists of 2016 to be celebrated at the seventh-annual “CMT ARTISTS OF THE YEAR”
Multi-CMA nominee Thomas Rhett heightens the success of his PLATINUM certified sophomore album’s “retro, soul-inspired danceable mix of arena-sized tunes and hooky melodies” (Associated Press) with the upcoming release of TANGLED UP DELUXE (The Valory Music Co.), available on Oct. 28. The 18-track album is filled with party anthems, dance tunes, drinking songs, love ballads and five never-before-heard tracks including his new single "Star Of The Show” and a remix of his ACM and Billboard Music Award winning “Die A Happy Man” feat. Tori Kelly.
On the heels of her mega-hit debut album, The First Time, and before her first-ever headlining tour, “CMT’s Next Women of Country” member Kelsea Ballerini has taken the country world by storm. With her 3rd #1 hit “Peter Pan,” Kelsea Ballerini is the only female artist in country music history, including female duos and groups, to go #1 with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album. She is set to receive the second-annual “Breakout Artist of the Year” honor. Additional awards, performers and special guests will be announced at a later date.
