New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Luke Combs' "She Got The Best of Me" tops the Mediabase Country chart this week and returns to #1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart for the second straight week. Moreover, Combs' Platinum-certified debut album, This One's For You, is back at #1 on the BillboardCountry Albums chart this week. Since its release June 2, 2017-73 weeks ago-the album has spent a total of sixteen non-consecutive weeks at #1, including twelve weeks in 2018-the most of any album this year.
"She Got The Best of Me" is Combs fourth-consecutive #1 single-following 3x platinum "Hurricane," 2x platinum "When It Rains
It Pours" and platinum "One Number Away
"-which all appear on the deluxe version of This One's For You, released on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville. Combs is the first solo artist to score four consecutive career-opening #1's on Billboard's Country Airplay chart.
Combs is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards. The awards ceremony will be broadcast on ABC live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena
on Wednesday, November 14 at 8/7c.
These milestones follow a hugely successful fall debut headline European tour, which sold out months in advance and saw Combs playing for over 12,000 fans across Birmingham, London (two nights), Glasgow, Manchester, Amsterdam and Berlin. In their recent cover story devoted to Combs, Maverick
Magazine declares, "...it is with no exaggeration to say that he can currently be described as a country music superpower" and goes on to assert, "It's by putting the crowd first that makes Combs such a big draw on the live circuit, and is another reason why his tickets in the U.K. have been like gold dust."
Capping off the breakthrough years, Combs will embark on his largest North American headline tour in 2019-with 26 of the 28 venues already sold-out. The "Beer Never Broke My Heart
Tour" features sold-out performances at Greensboro, NC's Greensboro Coliseum, Greenville, SC's Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Columbus, OH's Schottenstein Center, Charlottesville, VA's John Paul Jones Arena, New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, Omaha, NE's HI Health Center and Morrison, CO's Red Rocks Amphitheatre among many others.
Since the release of This One's For You, Combs has been named Billboard's Top 100 Artist and Top New Country Artist of 2017, "Best New Country Artist" at the iHeart Radio
Row's "Breakthrough Artist Of The Year" and 2017 Artist To Watch by Amazon Music, Billboard, Bobby
Bones, CMT, HuffPost, Nashville Lifestyles, Pandora
and Rolling Stone.
This One's For You was produced by Scott Moffatt (except for "One Number Away," which was co-produced by Sammy Mitchell and Jackie Boyz) and recorded in Nashville, TN at Gold Cassette Studios and Direct Image Recording Studio.
Combs released the deluxe edition, This One's For You Too, earlier this summer, which landed at #1 on Billboard Country Albums Chart and #4 on Billboard 200 Chart.
