Image Courtesy CMACongratulations to Thomas Rhett, whose latest single, "Make Me Wanna," just became his third consecutive #1 hit. That statistic is even more impressive considering Thomas only has one album out, It Goes Like This. He's currently in the studio working on his sophomore album, and Thomas feels "Make Me Wanna" gives fans a taste of what's to come.

"This song is the perfect bridge between It Goes Like This and the new stuff we’ve been working on," Thomas says. “So, this kind of support from country radio, my friends in the industry and the fans who have been relentlessly supporting me has got me really pumped for what’s next!”  

Thomas is currently on the road with Florida Georgia Line on the Anything Goes tour.

Justin Moore Enlists Wife to Pick Songs for His Next Album

Image Courtesy Valory Music Co.Justin Moore's wife, Kate, convinced him to record his #1 hit, "Til My Last Day," so he's relying on her song-selection skills as he records his upcoming album. A few days ago, Justin was in the studio recording songs when he called on Kate to pick a few songs for the session.

He tells Billboard, "I had a couple of spots left, and I could absolutely not decide what to throw in there. I let my wife pick them. One of them was a song that wasn't even on my radar, and she was just adamant that I cut it."

As a singer/songwriter, Justin admits he's prone to over analyzing a song when he's selecting new material. That's where Kate comes in handy.

"I'll go, 'It doesn't get to the hook fast enough. It's too long. It's too slow or it's too pop.'" Justin says. "She just listens, and goes, 'Oh, I like that' or 'I don't like that.' Anyone that you have around you like that is definitely a tool to use, and I've learned that in the past with her picking some songs that became hits that I might have never even have recorded."

Justin will be playing his hits at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo in Texas Tuesday night.
