Thomas Rhett (TR) seems to be equally thrilled and dumbfounded over his 2020 Grammy nomination.

The singer-songwriter’s latest album Center Point Road received a nod in the Best Country Album category at this Sunday’s 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.

“It’s just wild,” TR says, continuing, “When you get nominated for an album, a full project, it really does mean the world, because a record just takes so much work to complete [from] the writers and the producers and the background singers and everybody. So, to be recognized by the Grammys for that is like … it’s ridiculous.”

The album puts a spotlight on TR’s family and where he grew up. That makes the album very personal for him and makes the nomination even more special.

“This album was just so personal,” Thomas Rhett shares. “I wish I knew how the voting happened. I wish I could have been in the room where I heard why my record [was nominated]… But it was really vulnerable, and it talks about my family and my hometown and [it is] one of the deeper albums that I’ve made. And so it’s really cool to see that be celebrated.”

The album has already produced two number one single, “Look What God Gave Her” and “Remember You Young.” The third single “Beer Can’t Fix” features Jon Pardi and is climbing the country singles charts. Listen for all the songs on Bloomington-Normal’s #1 Country, B104.

We will find out if Thomas Rhett wins the award for his album during the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will this Sunday, January 26th, on CBS at 7 PM central time (8 PM eastern time).
