Since his debut in 2017, Luke Combs has been a mainstay on the country albums rankings and on country radio, consistently cranking out a string of hit songs. On Oct. 23, he’ll release the deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville.
The album expands on the 18 songs included on Combs’ Platinum-certified, full-length sophomore project What You See Is What You Get, adding five new tracks.
What You See Is What You Get debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and Billboard‘s Top Country Albums chart and earned the largest streaming week ever for a country album, with 74 million 0n-demand streams. The project earned Combs the most first-week album streams ever for a country artist on Apple Music and became the first country project to hit No. 1 on Apple Music’s all-genre albums chart, while also setting a global record for first-week streams for a country album at Spotify and broke Amazon Music’s record for the most first-week streams for any country album debut.
The album is poised to be another smash for Combs, who made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums chart, breaking Taylor Swift’s previous record of 24 weeks. Combs’ 2017 debut, This One’s For You spent 50 consecutive weeks at No. 1, tying Shania Twain’s 1997 project Come On Over for the longest reign atop the chart. His debut has since been certified 3x multi-Platinum by the RIAA.
Combs’ first eight singles all reached No. 1, a record for Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart. His current single, “Lovin’ On Y0u,” is in the Top 10 at radio. He’s also nominated in three categories at the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, and Album of the Year (for What You See Is What You Get).
