Luke Combs makes history with ‘Cold As You’

Song is 12th consecutive No 1

Luke Combs has made history with “Cold As You” becoming his 12th consecutive No. 1 single at country radio. The song climbs to the top of the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week, marking What You See Is What You Get as the first-ever album to produce seven No. 1 singles.

This is the latest feat for the North Carolina country superstar who was crowned Entertainer of the Year the CMA Awards in Nashville for the first time ever. During the show, he also debuted “Doin’ It,” a song that represents his career and is expected to appear on his forthcoming third studio album that has yet to be announced.

Combs also recently made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart — breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks. The achievement comes as What You See Is What You Get topped the chart for the 25th time, while his 2017 debut, This One’s for You, has spent 50 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 — tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart.

In September, Combs returned to the stage for his massive What You See Is What You Get headline arena tour, featuring a special new in-the-round stage design. Ashley McBryde and Ray Fulcher are along for the ride that wraps with a two night stand in Boston on December 2nd and 3rd.

Combs will headline stadiums in 2022 with Cody Johnson, Zach Bryan & Morgan Wade. So far, four dates have been announced, including stops in Denver, Seattle and Atlanta with an appearance at Buckeye Country Superfest in Columbus, OH.

The “Beer Never Broke My Heart” singer will hit Canada for his first-ever headlining shows in March 2022. The Canadian Tour 2022 with Riley Green and Chayce Beckham will kick off a run of seven shows with two nights in Toronto on March 20th and 21st with stops Ottawa, Quebec City and Montreal before wrapping with two nights in London, Ontario March 30th and 31st.

Combs will perform live at AT&T Stadium for the nationally televised halftime show of the Dallas Cowboys game on CBS against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving Day. His performance will mark 25 years of a Cowboys and Salvation Army tradition that sounds a call for the American public to rally in support of the iconic Red Kettle Campaign, which is now in its 131st year.
