Luke Combs Caught Up In A Hurricane Of Platinum Success

Luke Combs’ debut album This One’s For You has gone Platinum, and the breakout artist has surpassed an amazing one billion career streams globally. The achievement was announced by Stephen Colbert on CBS’ Late Show With Stephen Colbert, before Combs’ performance of “One Number Away” Tuesday night (July 17).

This One’s For You is the fastest debut country album to go Platinum since Chris Stapleton’s Traveller in 2015. In the past year since his debut release, Combs has achieved three consecutive No. 1 singles at country radio – the double Platinum “Hurricane,” Platinum “When It Rains It Pours,” and Gold “One Number Away.” Combs reigned at the top of the Billboard Country Albums Chart for seven weeks and remains the most streamed country album of 2018.

His latest single, the newly-recorded version of long-time, fan favorite “She Got the Best of Me,” from his recently released deluxe album, will debut on July 30 on ABC’s Good Morning America. The song is a nod to Combs’ early fans and the then unknown songwriters who teamed up with him before there were sold-out crowds and chart-topping success. It has already racked up more than 45 million streams to date.
