Thomas Rhett’s “Sixteen” is the No.1 song in the country this week, marking the singer’s fifth No.1 from his album Life Changes and 12th No.1 overall. The song landed in the top spot on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Airplay charts, and has already spent four weeks at No.1 in Canada.

The singer took to Instagram to thank both his devoted fans and his friends at country radio for their support in earning him his latest chart-topper.

“I really just wanted to say thank you so much to my amazing fans and to everyone at country radio that made ‘Sixteen’ the No.1 song in the country this week and also the fifth No.1 off of Life Changes. What a dang year,” said Rhett in the clip. “You guys have been more than supportive, and I really just can’t wait to show you the next project and get on the Very Hot Summer Tour. Record is almost done and got some new music coming y’alls way very shortly. Love y’all. Thank you again so much. We’ll see you on the road.”

Rhett will take his latest success, plus the four previous No.1’s from Life Changes (“Craving You,” “Unforgettable,” “Marry Me,” “Life Changes”) out on the road as part of his Very Hot Summer Tour. The trek kicks off in May and hits nearly 40 cities in the first leg. Joining the hitmaker on the road will be Dustin LynchRussell Dickerson and Rhett Akins. For a full list of dates, click here.
