Thomas Rhett Scores 12th No. 1 Single With “Sixteen”

Thomas Rhett scored the 12th No. 1 single of his career as “Sixteen” topped both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.

The tune is the fifth single from TR’s 2017 album, Life Changes, to reach No. 1, following “Craving You,” “Unforgettable,” “Marry Me” and “Life Changes.” In case you were wondering, Luke Bryan holds the record with six singles from one album, Kill the Lights, to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

As TR told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, the message behind his nostalgic track, which he co-penned with Sean Douglas and Joe Spargur three years ago, is to “really enjoy your life.”

“I wrote ‘Sixteen’ when I was 25 years old,” says Thomas Rhett. “It was one of the first songs I wrote for Life Changes, and for a long time, I thought that ‘Sixteen’ would be the name of the record. I thought it would be the first single, and as you start to write, you start to figure out what’s first, what’s last, what’s second—and ‘Sixteen,’ to me, is one of my favorite songs I’ve gotten to write because I think that that story is so relatable to so many people. All of us that are young want to be old, and all of us that are old want to be young, and I think that song, really, the message is just be content where you are and really enjoy your life.”
