"Headlining for the first time has been pretty unreal,” said Thomas Rhett who launched his first headline arena tour in 2017. “It’s wild to me that next year we will be launching our second year of headline shows and are bringing out some of my favorite artists in music right now. I think the fans have come to expect that we’re going to be on our feet and having the time of our lives every single night."
