New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Reigning ACM New Male Artist of the Year Luke Combs is nominated in three categories at the 55th ACM Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for his acclaimed global #1 record, What You See Is What You Get. The awards ceremony will be broadcast on CBS live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 5 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT.

The nominations continue a series of groundbreaking and historic years for Combs. What You See Is What You Get-out now on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here)-recently debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard's Top Country Albums chart this past November with 172,000 equivalent units sold. It also enjoyed the largest streaming week ever for a country album with 74 million on-demand streams. It also achieved the biggest first week of album streams ever for a country artist on Apple Music and was the first country album ever to hit #1 on the platform's U.S. overall albums chart, while also setting a new global record for first-week streams for a country album at Spotify and breaking the Amazon Music record for more first-week streams than any other country album debut. Additionally, Combs made his debut as the musical guest on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" earlier this month with host JJ Watt performing two songs from, What You See Is What You Get: "Lovin' On You" and "Beer Never Broke My Heart.

In celebration of the album, Combs will make his headline debut at New York's Madison Square Garden with two special performances on November 30 and December 1 as part of his newly extended "What You See Is What You Get Tour." Additional stops include Raleigh's PNC Arena (two nights), Dallas' American Airlines Center (two nights), San Francisco's Chase Center, Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena, Chicago's United Center (two nights), Orlando's Amway Center and Boston's TD Garden (two nights) among several others. The newly confirmed dates will feature Combs performing with a new in-the-round stage design. Combs is also set to headline his first ever stadium show at Appalachian State University's Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, NC on May 2. The sold-out show continues Combs' historic success on the road with the first leg of the "What You See Is What You Get Tour" selling out immediately after going on-sale last fall, including two record-breaking feats:

Lexington, KY's Rupp Arena sold-out in 12 minutes-breaking the record for the fastest sell-out in the venue's 43-year history (previously set by Paul McCartney)
University Park, PA's Bryce Jordan Center broke the venue's record for fastest single-show sell-out (previously held by Luke Bryan)

Produced by Scott Moffatt, What You See Is What You Get features 17 songs including the five tracks previously released via The Prequel EP last summer. The EP debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart with all five tracks charting on Billboard's Hot Country Songs Top 25-a feat not accomplished by any artist in 60 years since Johnny Cash in 1959. Additionally, Combs' last single, "Even Though I'm Leaving," spent three weeks at #1 at country radio, making it Combs' seventh consecutive #1-a first on Billboard's Country Airplay chart. Following this success, Combs' current single, "Does To Me" featuring Eric Church, is already Top 15 at country radio.

Adding to his landmark year, Combs' debut album, This One's For You, was recently certified RIAA Triple Platinum. Since its release in 2017, the album has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart-tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain's Come On Over in 1997. This One's For You was also the most-streamed country album of 2019. Moreover, several of Combs' songs have also received new RIAA certifications: 4x Platinum "Beautiful Crazy," 4x Platinum "When It Rains It Pours," 2x Platinum "She Got The Best of Me" and Platinum "Must've Never Met You."
