Like so many country stars, Thomas Rhett got his start penning hits for other performers; his early career is littered with chart-toppers performed by the likes of Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line. Since releasing his 2013 debut, It Goes Like This, though, Rhett’s been keeping those hits for himself, and he’s got a lot of them. The 2019 Academy of Country Music Male Artist of the Year is about to release his fourth full-length, Center Point Road, and you can expect another savvy blend of country, R&B, pop and rock. He played one of the tunes, “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time,” on a recent Saturday Night Live and you can bet it’ll be part of his set in Spokane.
