New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Country superstar and reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs
furthers his record-breaking run at country radio as his single, "Going, Going, Gone," reaches #1 this week. This is Combs' 15th consecutive #1 single-the longest consecutive streak for an artist since their debut-and makes Combs one of the fastest to accumulate 15 #1s, joining the ranks of Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson
The accomplishment adds to yet another monumental year for Combs, who will release his new album, Gettin' Old-a companion to his acclaimed 2022 record, Growin' Up-next Friday, March 24 via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (pre-order here).
Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin' Old is Combs' fourth full-length album following Growin' Up, 2019's 3x Platinum What You See is What You Get and his 4x Platinum debut, This One's For You.
Across these eighteen tracks, including a rendition of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," Combs continues to establish himself as one of music's most authentic and powerful voices, as he explores themes of family, legacy, love and personal growth.
Ahead of the release, Combs has unveiled three additional album tracks: "Joe," "Growin' Up and Gettin' Old" and "Love You Anyway," of which The New York Times praises, "His bellow is more stable, his emotional presence more dignified. But there's still something of a purring engine inside songs like 'Love You Anyway,'" while Billboard declares, "it immediately sounds like one of his strongest to date."
Reflecting on the album, Combs shares, "This album is about the stage of life I'm in right
now. One that I'm sure a lot of us are in, have been through, or will go through. It's about coming of age, loving where life is now but at the same time missing how it used to be, continuing to fall for the one you love and loving them no matter what, living in the moment but still wondering how much time you have left, family, friends, being thankful, and leaving a legacy. Me and so many others have poured their hearts and souls into this record, and I hope you love it as much as we do."
Furthermore, Combs will kick off his massive World Tour next weekend with sixteen North American stadium shows, all of which sold out immediately. With 39 shows across 3 continents and 16 countries, the record-breaking run is the largest tour ever for a country artist.
The upcoming trek includes shows at Arlington, TX's AT&T Stadium, Nashville's Nissan Stadium and Foxborough's Gillette Stadium, as well as stops in Australia, New Zealand, U.K., Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, France and Belgium. See below for complete tour itinerary.
A member of the Grand Ole Opry and an 8x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music
Award-winner, Combs is in the midst of a historic series of years. Most recently, he was named CMA Entertainer of the Year for the second-consecutive year this past November.
Additionally, with his 2019 release, What You See Ain't Always What You Get, Combs reached #1 on Rolling Stone's Top 200 Albums chart, Top 100 Songs chart and Artists 500 chart-the first country artist ever to lead all three charts in the same week and first to top the Artists 500.
