ACC with Kix Brooks #1 song of the week Beautiful Crazy from Luke Combs. American Country Countdown is on CISN Country 103.9 Edmonton and Country 105 Calgary Saturday’s 8am-Noon.
Five years ago Luke Combs was just trying to get by. He was attending college in North Carolina, working two jobs, living in an apartment above a bar and driving a 2000 Dodge Neon. Today he is a genuine country music superstar with a recently certified RIAA double Platinum LP This One’s For You.
Luke Combs made history last week being the first artist to send his first five songs to #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Beautiful Crazy is a two week #1 on the Country Airplay chart.
I always had confidence in myself and my abilities, but I never would have imagined it being to this extent. I think my real goal was just to be able to make a decent living playing music. Everything else on top of it is so awesome and so amazing. My team and I are thankful for everything.
Another history making week for Luke as he pulls off the high five. Combs is just the second artist to have a #1 song on five country charts concurrently. Kane Brown was the other country artist to achieve this feat back in 2017.
“This is a great day,” says Combs. “From being chosen as one of Billboard’s artists to watch in 2017 to now topping all five charts is very humbling. This doesn’t happen unless radio and the fans embrace the music and me as much as they have. That is the best part: that I get to wake up every day and do this. I appreciate everyone supporting me and the music.”
Two weeks #1 for Beautiful Crazy on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
I wrote it about my now-fiancé before we started dating. I think it was a first-time thing for me as far as having that direct inspiration for a song. It’s fun and it’s lighthearted, but it also has a message: you’re supposed to love someone for who they are. That was the idea when we wrote the song. There might be things that are quirky or weird about somebody, but sometimes, those are the things that draw you to that person.
Luke’s fan club is called Bootleggers. We suspect Megan is a member.
Luke Combs is currently on the road with LANCO and Jameson Rodgers for his Beer Never Broke My Heart tour.
March 2nd Luke was in Worcester Massachusetts. Luke and fiance Nicole Hocking tried one of Canada’s favorite sports curling.
Everyone loves a rodeo. Just ask Nicole. Wednesday March 6th Luke performed at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Eastern Canada will see Luke Combs tour stops March 28 in London at Budweiser Garden, March 29 Oshawa at Tribute Communities Centre and March 30 in Kingston at Leon’s Centre. All three shows are sold out.
