Thomas Rhett's “Star Of The Show” was inspired by his wife Lauren and was co-written by his father--- now this 'family project' has hit No. 1!

Grammy nominee Thomas Rhett has clenched his seventh career No. 1 this week on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts with the fastest-rising single of his career “Star Of The Show.” The tribute track for his wife Lauren Akins is featured on his sophomore album Tangled Up Deluxe and was co-written by Thomas Rhett, his father Rhett Akins, and Ben Hayslip.

“I was in Houston this weekend for the Super Bowl when I got the news,” shared Thomas Rhett in a statement. “It made for a really fun start to the game, even though my Falcons didn’t pull through in the end! I’ve always known this song needed to have its moment, so it’s really sweet to be able to celebrate it now and with Lauren and my dad.”
