Luke Combs Tops Luke Combs for Most Weeks at No. 1 on All 5 Billboard Country Charts

Nash Daily News - Tue, 04/02/2019 - 12:31

For the third week, Luke Combs is simultaneously topping all five of Billboard’s country charts (Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs, Country Digital Song Sales and Top Country Albums).

Luke’s “Beautiful Crazy” is No. 1 on four charts, while his album, This One’s for You, is No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart. Luke is now the only artist in country music history to top all five charts for three weeks.

Kane Brown was No. 1 on all five charts for one week in October 2017.

In addition, Luke’s “Beautiful Crazy” is No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for the sixth straight week. According to Billboard, the record for most weeks atop the chart is eight, which Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett’s “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere” accomplished in 2003.

With his latest No. 1 single, Luke is first country artist in history whose first five singles have reached No. 1, following previous chart-toppers “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away” and “She Got the Best of Me.”

Luke is nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the upcoming ACM Awards in April. He was recently named ACM New Male Artist of the Year.
