“If anyone follows my wife Lauren or me on social media, they probably already know how important 147 is to us,” said Thomas Rhett. “We’re getting asked all the time by friends and fans about what they can do to help, so we wanted to put something together to help support all the work 147 is doing for orphans around the world. I can’t think of a better group of guys to help kick this off than Dierks, Walker and Shane and am looking forward to a couple other surprises we’re working on for the night.”

“One of country’s perennial 'next big things’” (Noisey) continues “pushing up against Country’s music boundaries” (Associated Press), as his sophomore release TANGLED UP (The Valory Music Co.) follows the same path earning PLATINUM certification by the RIAA and continues to earn applause for its newest "ultimate party song" (Ottawa Citizen) “Vacation.” The album has already produced three chart-toppers including the newly minted “T-Shirt,” the 2X PLATINUM six-week No. one and ACM award-winning "Die A Happy Man” as well as the PLATINUM “Crash And Burn." The singer/songwriter sparks "an ushering in of Country's future," (Rolling Stone) as he dominates the Nielsen 2016 Mid-Year List with TANGLED UP, landing in the Top 5 Country albums, while "Die A Happy Man" was the most streamed song overall with more than 80 million streams. Thomas Rhett continues on the road as direct support on Jason Adlean’s SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR and with sold-out headlining shows.
