Thomas Rhett Claims Earns Fifth Consecutive No. 1, Goes Platinum With ‘Die a Happy Man’
There's no question that Thomas Rhett has experienced a great year, and he's finishing 2015 on a high note: The singer has earned his fifth consecutive No. 1 hit and gone platinum with "Die a Happy Man."
The song is from Rhett's sophomore record, Tangled Up. In it, he sings about his wife, Lauren: “If I never get to see the Northern Lights / Or if I never get to see the Eiffel Tower at night / Oh, if all I got is your hand in my hand / Baby, I could die a happy man."
"Die a Happy Man" is especially sweet because Rhett and his wife's relationship spans a couple of decades (they met in first grade). The No. 1 hit is deeply meaningful to the singer, and that makes its success that much more exciting.
“It's been really cool to see a song that is so personal to me and Lauren become something so many other people can relate to,” Rhett shares. “This year has been wild, and I can't really think of a better way to close it out."
Rhett's other No. 1 songs include "It Goes Like This," "Get Me Some of That," "Make Me Wanna" and "Crash and Burn."
