posted by Dustin Stout -

It’s a life-changing week for Thomas Rhett!

The country star has set a personal best and made country history with his new album Life Changes, which officially debuts at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

TR’s third studio album is the first country release to land the Billboard 200 top spot in 2017, notching the third largest sales week of 2017 for a country album with more than 123,000 units sold.

Not since Jason Aldean did it one year ago with They Don’t Know has another country effort landed at No. 1 on the chart.

The historical week for Thomas was capped with a busy weekend, which included attending his dad Rhett Akins’ wedding and being surprised onstage by wife Lauren and daughters Willa Gray and Ada James at his concert in Pennsylvania.

Love when the fam comes out🙌🏼
