Thomas Rhett to Perform at 2017 iHeart Radio Music Awards
Thomas Rhett is country music’s only announced performer at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
The all-genre event, which takes place in March, also features performances by Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, the Chainsmokers, Shawn Mendes, Noah Cyrus featuring Labrinth and Big Sean.
It’s no surprise Rhett is on the list of performers as his Tangled Up album dominated 2016, yielding country chart-toppers “Crash and Burn,” “Vacation,” “T-Shirt” and Rhett’s double platinum smash, “Die a Happy Man.” His latest single, “Star of the Show” on Tangled Up (Deluxe) also earned him his seventh No. 1 single of his career.

Rhett also recently earned awards from the Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, Billboard Music Awards, CMT Music Awards and was Grammy-nominated for “Die a Happy Man.” In addition to performing at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Rhett is nominated for Country Artist of the Year along with Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood and more. The singer earned another nod in the Country Song of the Year category, for his catchy country single “T-Shirt.”
The 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards take place on March 5 at the Forum in Los Angeles. The ceremony will be televised live beginning at 8PM ET on TBS, TNT and truTV, and simulcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide and via iHeartRadio.
For fans wanting to catch Rhett's live performances, the country crooner launches his first-ever headlining 2017 Home Team Tour on Feb. 23 in Saginaw, Mich. The tour, which extends nationwide, also includes international dates in Europe and Canada.
Rhett will be juggling that workload with an increasingly busy home life. He and his wife Lauren recently announced they are not only expecting a child, they are adopting another from Africa. They turned to social media to reveal that the biological child they are expecting is a girl.
