"Life Changes" to Platinum for Rhett
Tuesday, August 14, 2018
– Thomas Rhett's latest album, "Life Changes," earned RIAA Platinum certification, signifying sales and streams of 1 million units.
"I found out 'Life Changes" and Platinum and the single was Gold the same day I got to play Nissan Stadium at home in Nashville, so that was a really special moment for me," Rhett said. "When you put out something so personal to you, you always wonder if other people will be able to relate. I just write what I know. It turns out that we all know love, family and experience the ups and downs of life. The best thing about music is that it becomes such a unifying force - we get to experience it all together."
The disc came out last year.

Still, Rhett's sound has its doubters – a lot of the air-quote country hits were grafted to other dance, pop and soul styles. ...
Thomas Rhett represents a dilemma for traditional country music fans. Namely, that he doesn't create much country music that appeals to traditional tastes. Although "Center Point Road" doesn't entirely reverse that trend, even during its most overtly pop moments, this new collection of songs is still a pretty good one.
The best song is also a love song - to a truck - titled "That Old Truck." It's the kind of song that only makes sense within country music circles. ...
