Country powerhouse Luke Combs just made history within just two years of his blooming career. Combs has just been named as the first artist to send his first five singles to No.1 on the Country Airplay chart. Right from the beginning, Combs’ first released single was an instant hit – leading the top of the charts for weeks. It wasn’t long before he was taking reign over the Country Airplay chart permanently.

Combs’ Big Break

Combs’ got his big break after his 2015 debut single, “Hurricane” sold 15,000 copies just in its first week. Little did he know, this would be just the beginning of a series of hits off his masterpiece of an EP, This One’s for You. After signing with Sony Music Nashville, “Hurricane” was re-released where it hit No. 1 on the country radio airplay charts in May of 2017 – holding its spot for two weeks.

This One’s For You reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart within one week of release. His second single, “When It Rains It Pours” hit country radio in 2017, quickly climbing to number one on the Country Airplay Chart. Combs’ third single, “One Number Away,” was released in 2018 and lead the chart for a week.

A History-Making Album

Following the album’s incredible success, Combs released two bonus tracks that quickly found their way to the top of the charts as well. “She Got The Best Of Me” was the fourth released single, reaching No.1 in late 2018. Combs’ latest single, “Beautiful Crazy” became a viral sensation before even being released – as Combs would perform it live on Facebook and at his concerts. Squeezing its way into 2019, “Beautiful Crazy” reached No.1.

According to Billboard, Combs miraculously leads their four main country charts, including Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs, and Country Digital Song Sales.

With an album consisting of love songs, heartbreak, and moving on anthems, it’s no wonder this talented gem is taking the country world by storm!

Congrats Luke! We can’t wait to see what other phenomenal work you release next. Until then… This One’s For You will be on repeat.
