Corks are popping in Thomas Rhett‘s house!

Upon hearing that he’s up for two iHeartRadio Music Awards, he immediately asked, “Should we get some champagne?”

Yes. The answer to that question is always yes!

The singer, 25, found out the good news – he’s up for best lyrics for “Die a Happy Man” and country artist of the year along with Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryanand Sam Hunt – during a video interview and was clearly taken aback by it all.

“Are you serious?” he asked in disbelief. “You’re not serious!”
