Thomas Rhett’s ‘Die a Happy Man’ Ties Taylor Swift Record

Thomas Rhett’s sweet ballad “Die a Happy Man” has broken a record as it claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard U.S. Country Airplay chart for the sixth week in a row, something that has not been done since Taylor Swift’s “Our Song” in 2008.

“I seriously can’t believe this song has spent six weeks at number one,” Rhett says in a press release. “When you put a song out there as personal as this, you hope it connects and resonates with people. But I could never have imagined it would connect like this! And to mirror an achievement not seen since Taylor Swift — someone I really respect as a songwriter, performer and entertainer — is just mind-blowing.”

The deeply personal song, written about his Rhett’s wife Lauren, is the second single from his sophomore record Tangled Up and also hit No. 1 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart, where it has stayed for 11 weeks. “Die a Happy Man” was certified platinum in late December and became his fifth consecutive No. 1.

“I just think this song shows how me and Lauren love each other, and I hope this song is an encouragement to other married couples or people that are dating,” the singer has said about the tune.

Rhett is currently on the road with Jason Aldean as part of his We Were Here Tour and recently teamed up with fitness center franchise Snap Fitness in a new campaign that not only features his song “I Feel Good,” but will also have him leading bootcamp workouts in person and fitness challenges via social media.
