Luke Combs' 'This One's For You' Has Longest Reign On Top Country Albums For a Solo Male in Over 25 Years

Billboard logo Billboard 4/2/2019 Jim Asker

Luke Combs continues his historic run atop all five of Billboard's country charts simultaneously: Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs, Country Digital Song Sales and Top Country Albums (all dated April 6). He leads the lists at the same time for a third frame; only Kane Brown had previously achieved the feat, on Oct. 28, 2017.  

Combs' "Beautiful Crazy" rules Country Airplay for a sixth week (40.1 million audience impressions, up less than 1 percent, according to Nielsen Music), marking the list's longest-leading No. 1 since Thomas Rhett's "Die a Happy Man," which dominated for six weeks beginning in January 2016.

"Crazy" is the 21st song to top Country Airplay for at least six weeks in the chart's 29-year history and is two frames shy of the record: Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett's "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" led for eight weeks in 2003.

"Crazy" also commands both Hot Country Songs and Country Streaming Songs (13.4 million U.S. streams, up 11 percent) for a sixth week. On Country Digital Song Sales, it prevails for a seventh week (11,000 sold, down 9 percent).

Meanwhile, Combs' debut LP This One's for You logs a 30th week at No. 1 on Top Country Albums (25,000 equivalent album units, up 3 percent). The set is just the 11th to reach the milestone since the chart began in 1964 and is the first since Lady Antebellum's Need You Now (31 weeks on top) in 2010-11. It's the first album by a solo male to reach the threshold since Billy Ray Cyrus' Some Gave All (34 weeks 1992-93), passing the 29-week reigns of Chris Stapleton's Traveller (2015-17) and Tim McGraw's Not a Moment Too Soon (1994).

PARDI CLOCKS IN:Jon Pardi adds his fourth Country Airplay top 10, as "Night Shift" strides 13-9 (21 million, up 10 percent). Pardi collects his first top 10 since 2017's No. 3-peaking "Heartache on the Dance Floor," which followed the No. 1s "Dirt on My Boots" and "Head Over Boots."

'GOOD' TIME:Kane Brown banks his fourth Country Airplay top 10 as "Good as You" hops 11-10 (20.9 million, up 11 percent). It follows his No. 1s "Lose It," "Heaven" and "What Ifs" (featuring Lauren Alaina).
