Combs Beautiful Crazy is a three week #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Luke recently made history twice, being the first artist to send his first five songs to #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Luke pulled off the high five. He was just the second artist to have a #1 song on five country charts concurrently.
Luke Combs moved to Nashville in September 2014. A North Carolina native, Combs had enjoyed singing in middle school and high school but first picked up a guitar in college at Appalachian State University in 2011.
He started playing gigs at the same bar where he worked in Boone North Carolina, and persuaded his boss to charge $1 a ticket. Luke made $200 one night and it dawned on him that maybe one day he could earn a living playing music.
Three weeks #1 for Beautiful Crazy on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
How can other singers replicate Combs’s success? “People always ask me, What’s the secret?” Combs said laughing. “If I knew what it was, I would be bottling it and selling it instead of what I’m doing now. I would be trying to manufacture whatever it is.”
Pressed for an answer, Combs will offer that it’s a combination of things: Hard work. Personal sacrifice. Luck. Timing. Surrounding yourself with trustworthy people. Writing songs that you yourself would want to hear on the radio.
Others point to Combs’s traditional ’90s country-influenced sound, which, combined with modern production, struck a chord with fans, or suggest that some singers just have that intangible X-factor.
Luke Combs fan club is called Bootleggers. Luke loves his fans especially his buddy Lane.
The 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards celebrated all things music March 14th from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Country music winners were: Luke Combs Country Artist of the Year, Bebe Rexha featuring Florida Georgia Line Meant to Be Country Song of the Year, Jason Aldean Rearview Town Country Album of the Year and Jordan Davis Best New Country Artist.
Luke Combs is on the road with LANCO and Jameson Rodgers with his Beer Never Broke My Heart tour.

I know I’ve already posted last weekend’s recap photos, but I thought this photo deserved a post of its own. You can’t see them and that’s probably the way they wanted it because I know they weren’t looking for any kind of recognition, but Travis and Matt, thank you for sacrificing yourselves and holding Shelby up during “Beautiful Crazy” where she could hear it like everyone else. We’re a family and this kind of stuff shows that more than words can ever explain. No one can look at something like this and tell me I don’t have the best fans in the entire world.
