Thomas Rhett, whose “Die A Happy Man” is enjoying its twelfth week as America’s #1 country song, is headed to NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
NBC listings confirm Rhett as the musical guest for the February 9 “Tonight Show.” The performance will mark his first appearance on television’s leading late night series.
As far as song choice, Rhett has two obvious options.
He can perform the aforementioned smash “Die A Happy Man,” a career-defining signature that could still benefit from promotion as it embarks on a crossover run at hot adult contemporary radio.
Alternatively, he can play “T-Shirt,” his new single at country radio.
