CMA Male Artist of the Year Luke Combs has surpassed Garth Brooks’ record on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with his sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get.
The “Forever After All” singer spent his 34th week at No. 1 with the aforementioned album, which made him the first artist in history since the chart made its debut in 1964 to have two albums sit at the No. 1 spot for at least 34 weeks.
According to Radio.com, this milestone allowed Combs to surpass his Idol Garth Brooks, who previously held the record with his 1990 album, No Fences, which spent 41 weeks at No. 1. However, his follow-up album, Ropin’ The Wind, sat the No. 1 spot for only 33 weeks in 1991.
In addition to that milestone, 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.
Combs recently released his deluxe edition of his album dubbed, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get,
“Better Together” is Combs’ latest single at country radio which continues to get airplay and climb the charts quickly.
