LUKE COMBS’ THIS ONE’S FOR YOU CERTIFIED DOUBLE PLATINUM
LEADS ALL FIVE BILLBOARD COUNTRY CHARTS THIS WEEK, SECOND ARTIST TO ACHIEVE HISTORIC FEAT
NOMINATED FOR TWO ACM AWARDS
“BEER NEVER BROKE MY HEART TOUR” SOLD OUT
Luke Combs’ breakthrough debut album This One’s For You is now certified RIAA double Platinum. Since it’s release June 2, 2017, the album has spent a total of 27 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, including 16 weeks in 2018—making it the highest selling country album last year with 1.1 million equivalent album units sold and the only country album to surpass 1 million album units. It’s also the most-streamed country album of 2019 so far.
The milestone adds to an already impressive few days for Combs who, earlier this week, became the second artist ever to top all five Billboard Country charts: Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales (all dated March 9).
The success comes on the heels of Combs’ latest single, “Beautiful Crazy,” which remains #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales charts for the second straight week. This is his fastest rising single to date (16 weeks) and makes Combs the first artist ever to send his first five singles to the top of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. “Beautiful Crazy” is also the first country single shipped to radio already platinum-certified since Taylor Swift’s “Red” in 2013 and has more than 270 million on-demand streams. In celebration of these milestones, Combs recently released an acoustic version of the song. Listen/share HERE.
Combs is nominated for two 2019 ACM Awards (Male Artist of the Year and New Male Artist of the Year) and recently won New Artist of the Year at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards, was nominated for Best New Artist at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and was the recipient of a CMA Triple Play Award for writing three #1 songs in a 12 month period.
In continued support of the album, Combs is currently in the midst of his sold-out “Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour”—his first ever headline arena tour. Upcoming stops include Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, Detroit’s DTE Energy Music Theatre and Charlotte’s PNC Music Pavilion among several others. See below for complete tour details.
