Listen to Thomas Rhett on iHeartRadio

Thomas Rhett now has a chart-topping single to his credit, and has logged another "first" in the process. 

"It Goes Like This" has reached the peak position on the Billboard Country Airplay chart to become the country singer's first number one hit.  It also marks the first time a father and son have both had a record top this particular chart as solo artists.  Thomas' dad, Rhett Akins, went to number one on the Country Airplay chart in August 1996 with single "Don't Get Me Started." 

But Thomas and Rhett aren't the first parent and child to independently top the chart.  Hillary Scott has topped the Country Airplay list a number of times as a member of Lady Antebellum.  And her mom, Linda Davis, was at number one on the chart with Reba McEntire with their collaborative hit, "Does He Love You" in November 1993.
