Ladies and gentlemen, this year's hottest country star has a name — and it's Thomas Rhett

The 28-year-old crooner was crowned as the Sexiest Country Star of 2018 in this week's upcoming issue of People magazine, on newsstands tomorrow. Unable to contain his excitement and gratitude, the "Die a Happy Man" singer took to Twitter last night (November 8) to spill the big news to his followers on social media. 

"Definitely just feel like I won a high school superlative," Rhett captioned a screenshot of his honor in the pub. "Thank you @people for this, he added, quipping, "our family group text was hilarious but brutal today Issue out on Friday."

 
 

In the profile, the two-time Grammy-nominated artist, who shares two daughters — Ada James and Willa Gray — with his wife, Lauren, spoke earnestly of the importance of being a family man.

"I take pride in trying to understand my wife and my kids, what makes them laugh, what makes them cry, what makes them happy, what makes them sad," the "Life Changes" star says in the piece. "I try to make sure I'm the best husband and dad I can possibly be."

Already considered the "Best Daddy Ever" to his little girls, now Rhett's will have to make some room on his mantle for his new honor! 

Rhett's handsome recognition comes a few days after actor Idris Elba was given the magazine's Sexiest Man Alive title earlier this week. Additionally, the musician is also in the running for Country Artist of 2018 at this year's E!'s People's Choice Awards, airing this Sunday (November 11) at 9 PM ET.
