Single extends Combs’ record with eight consecutive No 1’s
ACM, CMA and CMT Award-winning artist Luke Combs’ current single, “Does To Me” featuring Eric Church, is the No. 1 song on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week. This is Combs’ eighth-consecutive No. 1 single — a first on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart — and extends his record-breaking streak at country radio.
This achievement adds to a series of groundbreaking and historic years for Combs, who 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 No. 1 record, What You See Is What You Get.
What You See Is What You Get, available on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville, debuted at No. 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 and 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 No. 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. Moreover, Combs made his debut as the musical guest on NBC’s Saturday Night Live earlier this year with host JJ Watt performing two songs, “Lovin’ On You” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”
Additionally, Combs recently performed his new song, “Six Feet Apart,” on ABC’s Good Morning America. Co-written by Combs, Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder as a reflection on the COVID-19 pandemic, the song was released earlier this month to critical acclaim.
