Luke Combs makes Billboard Country Airplay chart history, first artist ever to simultaneously hold #1 and #2 spots




“The best country singer of his generation”—Esquire
“Combs is a superstar…he will likely remain as such for decades to come”

September 5, 2023—Reigning 2x CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs once again makes history this week as he currently holds the top two spots on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart—the first person to do so without another billed artist since the chart launched in 1990. This achievement comes as Combs’ single, “Love You Anyway,” is #1 this week—his 17th consecutive #1, yet another unprecedented feat—while his version of Tracy Chapman’s Grammy Award-wining song, “Fast Car,” is currently #2, after topping the chart earlier this summer. “Love You Anyway” reaches #1 just four weeks after “Fast Car” topped the chart, the fastest return to the top of the chart for an artist with a different song.
Combs has garnered massive success with “Fast Car” as it recently spent five consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and also reached #1 on the Hot AC chart, the first song by a male solo artist to ever top both the Hot AC and Country charts. The song is also currently #2 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart, was recently certified 2x Platinum and has garnered over 512 million global streams to date. 
This success at radio adds to a groundbreaking career for Combs, who will perform 25 U.S. stadium shows next year with his “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old Tour.” Newly confirmed stops include two nights at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, Jacksonville’s EverBank Stadium, Santa Clara’s Levi’s® Stadium, Houston’s NRG Stadium and Phoenix’s State Farm Stadium among many others. Special guests for the Friday night shows include Cody Jinks, The Avett Brothers, Charles Wesley Godwin, Hailey Whitters and The Wilder Blue, while the Saturday shows will feature Jordan Davis, Mitchell Tenpenny, Drew Parker and Colby Acuff.
The 2024 dates follow Combs’ massive World Tour, which runs through this fall including upcoming sold-out shows across Europe. With 44 shows across 3 continents and 16 countries, the tour is the largest ever for a country artist and has broken records across the globe. See below for complete tour itinerary. 
Combs is currently celebrating the release of his new album, Gettin’ Old—a companion to his acclaimed 2022 record, Growin’ Up—which was released earlier this spring via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here). Receiving critical acclaim, The New York Times praises, “…grounded in country, complete with fiddle fills, but it’s also pointed toward a wide pop audience” while Billboard proclaims, “his electrifying-yet-earthy voice soundtracking this time in his life as a husband, father and entertainer at the top of his game” and American Songwriter declares, “He’s a rock star at this point.” Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin’ Old is Combs’ fourth full-length album following Growin’ Up, 2019’s What You See is What You Get and This One’s For You
Additionally, Combs recently earned 22 new RIAA certifications including for his albums This One’s For You (6x Platinum), What You See Is What You Get (4x Platinum), Growin’ Up (Platinum) and Gettin’ Old (Gold), as well as for his songs “Hurricane” (9x Platinum), “When It Rains It Pours” (9x Platinum), “She Got The Best Of Me” (7x Platinum), “Beer Never Broke My Heart” (6x Platinum), “One Number Away” (5x Platinum), “The Kind of Love We Make” (3x Platinum), “Fast Car” (2x Platinum), “Doin’ This” (2x Platinum), “Houston, We Got A Problem” (2x Platinum), “Going, Going, Gone” (Platinum), “Love You Anyway” (Platinum), “Moon Over Mexico” (Platinum), “Brand New Man” (Platinum), “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old” (Gold), “5 Leaf Clover” (Gold), “Dear Today” (Gold), “Honky Tonk Highway” (Gold) and “This One’s For You” (Gold). 
A Grand Ole Opry-member and 8x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music Award-winner, Combs has also partnered with Opry Entertainment Group to open a massive multi-level entertainment complex in downtown Nashville, expected to open summer 2024.
