Luke Combs keeps setting and breaking records with his music and makes history this week 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 (all dated March 30). The 2019 ACM Award-winner for New Male Artist of the Year first achieved this feat the week of March 9.

This latest achievement comes on the heels of Combs’ 2x Platinum single, “Beautiful Crazy,” which remains No. 1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart for the third-straight week and holds strong at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for the fifth week in a row. His fastest-rising single to date (15 weeks), the song makes Combs the first artist ever to send his first five singles to the top of Billboard ’s Country Airplay chart. “Beautiful Crazy” is also the first country single shipped to radio already platinum-certified since Taylor Swift’s “Red” in 2013, and has more than 301 million on-demand streams

These achievements add to an already monumental year for Combs, whose breakthrough debut album This One’s For You is now certified RIAA Double Platinum. Since its release June 2, 2017, the album has spent a total of 29 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, including 16 weeks in 2018—making it the highest selling country album last year with 1.1 million equivalent album units sold and the only country album to surpass 1 million album units. It’s also the most-streamed country album of 2019 so far.
