Luke Combs has earned his tenth-consecutive No. 1 single with his current single “Better Together,” which sits atop the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

A first on the chart, this is the country superstar’s tenth No. 1 single in a row extended his record-breaking streak at Country radio.

This accomplishment continues Combs’ groundbreaking and historic series of years, whose global No. 1 record, What You See Is What You Get, was just certified double Platinum by the RIAA. The award-winning album’s 18 tracks along with five new songs are also featured on Combs’ new deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, which debuted No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

Additionally, the deluxe album’s song, “Forever After All,” landed at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart—the highest entrance ever for a male country solo artist. With the release, Combs also reached No. 1 on Rolling Stone ’s Top 200 Albums chart, Top 100 Songs chart and Artists 500 chart—the first country artist ever to lead all three charts in the same week and first to top the Artists 500.

Combs also recently 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 previously held record at 24 weeks. The achievement comes as What You See Is What You Get topped the chart for the 25th time earlier this summer, while his 2017 debut, This One’s For You, has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1—tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain’s Come On Over in 1997.

The superstar is set to perform at NASCAR’s Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 14 at Daytona International Speedway.
