Luke Combs has quickly added another chart-topper, following his debut single “Hurricane.” Industry members gathered at BMI’s Nashville office to celebrate Combs’ second Platinum, multi-week No. 1 single, “When It Rains It Pours.” The track was penned by BMI songwriters Combs, Ray Fulcher and Jordan Walker (of Walker McGuire).
“When It Rains It Pours” marks the first No. 1 for co-writers Fulcher and Walker, and each were honored with BMI guitars to commemorate the occasion.
Among those celebrating were BMI’s Bradley Collins, Warner-Chappell’s Ben Vaughn, River House’s Lynn Oliver-Cline, Big Machine’s Mike Molinar, COR Entertainment’s Mickey Jack Cones, Combustion Music’s Chris Farren, CMA’s Brandi Simms, and more. MusicRow Owner/Publisher Sherod Robertson was also on hand to honor the writers with MusicRow Challenge Coins, for “When It Rains It Pours” reaching No. 1 on the MusicRow CountryBreakout Chart.
Each of the co-writers can be found out on the road this spring. Combs will kick off the 2018 leg of his headlining tour, Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time, with two sold-out nights at the legendary Ryman Auditorium. His third single off the album, “One Number Away,” impacted radio earlier this month and continues to climb the charts. Fulcher, who penned 8 of the 12 tracks on Combs’ debut record, joins Morgan Wallen on the road. One-half of rising country duo Walker McGuire, Jordan Walker is out promoting their self-titled debut EP on the Lost Tour, which features a mixture of headlining shows and support dates for Lee Brice, Granger Smith and Drew Baldridge.
