Thomas Rhett raises a toast to his 15th career Number One this week, cracking country radio’s top spot with “Beer Can’t Fix” featuring Jon Pardi — and breaking a record in the process.

Co-written by Rhett with Julian Bunetta, Zach Skelton and Ryan Tedder, the buzzy good-time anthem marks a historic best in country music. It’s T.R.’s ninth straight chart topper, breaking the all-time Billboard Country Airplay Chart record.

“I am blown away that this is my 15th Number One single,” Rhett says in an official statement. “It’s a crazy time right now for everyone and it’s really fitting for me that a song I started writing with my buddies during a bad game of golf, and that features another good buddy, Jon Pardi, has maybe helped to bring a smile to people’s faces right now. I am beyond grateful to the fans and country radio and can’t wait to celebrate with everybody soon.”

Beyond bringing a smile to the face of fans, Rhett also notes that the song means a lot to him personally. Writing on Instagram, the superstar explains it helps represent how far he’s come in country music without sacrificing his core values.

“You start out in this business hoping people enjoy what you have to say and I have tried so hard to make sure every song has a purpose,” Rhett says. “Whether that purpose is to get people to dance, smile, cry a little, pull at the heart strings or simply just wanna crack a beer with good friends.”

In related news, Rhett was recently revealed as a featured performer on the June 3 CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special, and his Center Point Road album was just certified GOLD by the RIAA. Up for five trophies at this year’s ACM Awards, he hopes to return to the road June 13 in Hunter, NY.
