Luke Combs earned a another Platinum certification!
The country superstar’s chart-topping hit “Forever After All” has officially been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The results and accolades speak for themselves, from his massive headlining tours to support tours with Brantley Gilbert and Jason Aldean earlier in his career. The superstar also has a forever growing list of awards, including a CMA Award for Male Vocalist Of The Year, and plenty more, the list goes on and on.
The heart-melting track is the third single of a three-part trilogy about his wife Nicole Hocking Combs as the singer previously shared, “first came ‘Beautiful Crazy,’ then “Better Together,’ and now ‘Forever After All.”
Initially released almost a year ago and written all the way back in January 2019 by Combs alongside Rob Williford and Drew Parker, the country hitmaker released “Forever After All”, and needless to say it was one of his biggest hits to date. In fact, the song crushed streaming records across the board, impressive in a market where country music hasn’t traditionally done exceedingly well on streaming services. Now, said song has reached a major sales milestone, as well.
According to the RIAA, the song has been certified Platinum for sales of one million copies, definitely a milestone in Combs’ career to date. One listen to this song – and really almost anything off his two full-length albums – and you know the man was born to be a star.
The country superstar released the song on the deluxe edition of his chart-topping 2019 album, What You See Is What You Get, dubbed What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, which featured 5 brand-new tracks including “Forever After All.”
“They say nothin’ lasts forever/ But they ain’t seen us together/ Or the way the moonlight dances in your eyes/ And I know there’ll be that moment/ The good Lord calls one of us home and/ The one won’t have the other by their side/ But heaven knows that that won’t last too long/ Maybe some things last forever after all,” Combs sings in the chorus.
Combs and Nicole tied the knot on August 1, 2020 during an intimate beach ceremony. Despite the threat of Hurricane Isaias, The couple married at their home in Southern Florida surrounded by family and plan to have a much bigger ceremony with their family and friends in 2021, according to a rep for the singer.
