Luke Combs has added yet another sales milestone to his lengthy list of accolades, becoming the first artist to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or better at No. 1 on Billboards Top Country Albums chart. This breaks the record set by Taylor Swift, who previously held the lead with 24 weeks.

Combs’ album What You See Is What You Get (River House Artists/Columbia Nashville) is currently at No. 1 on the country albums chart, while his 2017 debut project, This One’s For You, spent over 50 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1, tying the record with Shania Twain‘s 1997 project Come On Over for the longest stint at No. 1 on the country albums chart.

Combs is a multiple nominee at the upcoming ACM Awards, including nominees for Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year (What You See Is What You Get). Combs is also a nominee at the upcoming MusicRow Awards, where he is up for Artist of the Year, as well as Song of the Year (“Does To Me,” ft. Eric Church). Combs is the MusicRow Awards’ reigning Artist of the Year, and won Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2018.

Combs will return to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, July 16 to perform his Top 20 single “Lovin’ On You.” His previous single, “Does To Me” (ft. Eric Church), spent two weeks at No. 1 on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart, making it his eighth-consecutive No. 1 single—a first on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

Produced by Scott MoffattWhat You See Is What You Get features 17 songs including the five tracks previously released via The Prequel EP last summer. Moffatt is also nominated for Producer of the Year at the upcoming MusicRow Awards in August.
