“The 16th hole is going to be an unbelievable venue to host a concert and these limited platinum tickets we have available are truly going to be the best seats in the house,” said 2022 WM Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman Dr. Michael Golding. “This concert sold out within hours when we opened our initial ticket sales last month, so we are excited to be able to offer some additional seating that is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for this first-ever event.”
Old Dominion will kick things off at 5 p.m., while Thomas Rhett will take the stage at approximately 6:30 p.m. The concert will take place on a massive stage that will be built in the middle of the 16th hole fairway strictly for this special Saturday show. Doors for this concert will open at 3 p.m.
Thomas Rhett’s five studio albums have spawned 18 multi-PLATINUM and GOLD chart-toppers and 10 BILLION global streams as he’s dubbed “the most reliable maker of No. 1 singles in country music”
(Variety). He’s been honored with eight ACM Awards, including 2020’s Entertainer of the Year, two CMA Awards, four GRAMMY nominations, plus trophies from the CMT Music Awards, Billboard Awards and iHeartRadio Awards, in addition to being recognized with two CMA Triple Play awards for penning three No. One songs within a 12-month period.
With a renewed clarity and a fresh perspective, Thomas Rhett’s fifth studio double album COUNTRY AGAIN: SIDE A (The Valory Music Co.). released in April. The album’s GOLD-certified lead single “What Your Country Song,” topped Billboard’s Hot Country Charts, while the album’s defining title track marked his 12th consecutive No. 1 song – the longest active streak in the format. The in-demand superstar marked his return to the road with THE CENTER POINT ROAD TOUR. For more information visit www.thomasrhett.com.
Old Dominion is making a return trip to the Waste Management Phoenix Open after they debuted at the Coors Light Birds Nest in 2019. The group has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands out of Nashville, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. Their lyrical wit and hook heavy songwriting has certainly proved a winning method – since breaking onto the music scene in 2014, the band has notched eight No. 1 singles at country radio, surpassed one billion on-demand streams, earned several Platinum and Gold single certifications and headlined arenas and amphitheaters around the globe.
Old Dominion are currently the reigning CMA and ACM “Group of the Year.” Most recently, the band earned their 4th consecutive “Group of the Year” win at the 56th Annual ACM Awards and have been nominated for “Vocal Group of the Year” for the 2021 CMA Awards. In 2020, the band received their first two GRAMMY nominations for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” and “Best Country Song” for their hit single “Some People Do”, which is featured on their self-title third studio album. At the 2020 CMT Awards, the band took home their first win for “Group Video of The Year”. The group also notched two nominations for the 2020 CMAs including “Vocal Group” and “Album of the Year” for their self-titled 2019 studio album, nominations for “Top Country Duo/Group” and “Top Country Song” for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, as well as a “Favorite Duo/Group – Country” nod for the 2020 American Music Awards.
The band’s current single, “I Was on a Boat That Day”, was released in May of 2021 and is the lead single off their fourth studio album Time, Tequila and Therapy, which just dropped on Oct. 8, 2021.
The 2022 WM Phoenix Open will take place Feb. 7-13 at TPC Scottsdale. “The People’s Open” has been named the Tournament of the Year by the PGA TOUR four times in the past seven years (2014, 2015, 2018, 2019) to acknowledge the tournament’s legendary status as one the most unique events in golf. The 2022 edition will mark the 87th playing of the event (one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR) and the 13th with Waste Management as title sponsor.
