One week after releasing his fourth studio album, Center Point Road, on May 31, Thomas Rhett will headline a special concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on June 8 during CMA Fest.
Fans will get to experience an up-close-and-personal set from the singer/songwriter via a stripped-down, in-the-round setting. Longtime fans will recognize the B-stage layout, inspired by TR’s live show where he shares stories behind the songs. Tickets are $25 and include a copy of Center Point Road, with proceeds benefiting music education through the CMA Foundation.
Tickets will go on sale on May 13 at 10 a.m. CT for fan club members and 12 p.m CT for the general public.
“We’ve been able to do album release parties all over the country, but to host one in my own backyard during CMA Fest when country music fans are here from all over the world is incredible,” says Thomas Rhett. “Nashville is home to the memories and stories from this album that made me into the person I am today, and to also be able to help raise money for Music Education while we celebrate this release makes it extra special.”
Center Point Road takes its name from the street in TR’s Tennessee hometown that shaped much of his life experiences. TR co-penned every track on the 16-song album, which also features a who’s who of top songwriters, including Shane McAnally, Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure, Karen Fairchild and more. In addition, the album features a number of collaborations with other artists, including Kelsea Ballerini (“Center Point Road”), Little Big Town (“Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time”) and Jon Pardi (“Beer Can’t Fix”).
