CMA NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR NOMINEE THOMAS RHETT REVS UP FOR HEADLINING TALLADEGA POST-RACE CONCERT THIS SATURDAY

Thomas Rhett Steps Up as Direct Support on Florida Georgia Line's ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015

Nashville, TN - Oct. 16, 2014 - In the race for CMA's New Artist of the Year award, first-time nominee Thomas Rhett will head to NASCAR's most competitive track on Saturday to headline Fred's 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series post-race concert at Talladega Superspeedway (10/18).

"Talladega is one of those iconic places that you grow up knowing about, whether you follow NASCAR or not," said Thomas Rhett. "So, to be able to go there and perform... that definitely goes on the 'Things I'll tell my Grandkids' list."

The Platinum-selling singer/songwriter was also recently tapped as direct support for Florida Georgia Line on their upcoming ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015, which kicks off Jan. 15 in Toledo, OH. The new tour will follow runs with some of Country Music's biggest stars including Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert.

Thomas Rhett just released the new single "Make You Wanna" from his debut album IT GOES LIKE THIS (The Valory Music Co.), which has already spawned two consecutive Platinum-certified No. one hits, spending a total of four weeks in the top position in the last year.
