Luke Combs Just Had One of the Best Weeks in the History of Country Music

If it seems like Luke Combs is crushing a new milestone every week . . . he is.

In addition to getting invited to join the Grand Ole Opry on June 11, Luke achieved the largest streaming week ever for a country artist. Check out a few of his amazing accomplishments on the Billboard country charts this week.

  • Luke’s five-track EP, The Prequel, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
  • Luke’s 2017 debut album, This One’s for You, is No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
  • All five tracks on The Prequel are in the Top 25 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, which hasn’t been accomplished since Johnny Cash did it in 1959.

Luke recently made history as the first artist to simultaneously top all five Billboard country charts for multiple weeks: Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales. He is also the first country artist in history whose first five singles have reached No. 1.
