The 2016 CMA Awards were held Wednesday night and Thomas Rhett took home “Single of the Year” for “Die A Happy Man.” Nick Jonas, the country star’s unlikely duet partner, couldn’t be happier. “Happy for you man! You deserve this,” he tweeted to Thomas.
The bond between these two artists was first made when Thomas helped Nick debut “Chainsaw” on “CMT Crossroads.” The country singer even joined Nick on stage during the Nashville stop of the “Honda Civic Tour: Future Now” where they performed “Chainsaw” and Thomas’ award-winning “Die A Happy Man.”
