About Luke Combs
Luke Combs is a multi-platinum, award-winning musician from Asheville, NC, who stormed onto the music landscape as one of Country’s brightest stars. His new album, What You See Is What You Get, was released last week via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville to widespread acclaim — NPR Music praises, “He can take any classic country theme and give you just enough of a spin on it…that it becomes completely memorable…This whole album is full of country bangers.” The album features 17 songs including the five tracks previously released via his The Prequel EP as well as collaborations with Brooks & Dunn and Eric Church. Upon its release earlier this summer, all five tracks from The Prequel charted on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Top 25—a feat not accomplished since Johnny Cash in 1959—with lead single “Beer Never Broke My Heart” reaching #1 at country radio, making it Combs’ sixth consecutive #1—a first on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. Adding to his monumental year, Combs’ double Platinum debut album, This One’s For You, recently spent its 50th non-consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—tying the record for longest reign atop the chart and remains the most-streamed country album of 2019. Already an ACM, CMA, CMT and Billboard Music Award-winning artist and GRAMMY nominee, Combs is nominated for three more awards at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards, is currently in the midst of his sold-out “Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour” and will kick off his “What You See Is What You Get Tour” next year including his first ever headline stadium show.
