Country superstar and reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs furthers his record-breaking run at country radio this week as his single, “Doin’ This,” is #1 on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts. This is Combs’ thirteenth-consecutive #1 single, adding yet another historic accomplishment to his career.
In celebration of “Doin’ This,” as well as Combs’ last eight chart-topping singles, BMI will host its biggest #1 party ever with a special sold-out Parking Lot Party concert on June 8 in Nashville, featuring performances by Combs and his co-writers.
“Doin’ This,” a personal reflection of his own life and career, is featured on Combs’ highly anticipated new album, Growin’ Up, which will be released June 24 via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (pre-order here). The song continues to receive widespread acclaim following its release last fall, with Billboard praising, “the North Carolina native with the full-throttle voice and arsenal of hits has become an unstoppable force,” while Music Row declares, “His heart is so huge, and there are few in the format who are as completely relatable…A masterpiece.” Listen to the song HERE and watch/share the official music video HERE.
Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Growin’ Up is Combs’ third studio album following 2019’s 3x Platinum What You See is What You Get and his 4x Platinum debut, This One’s For You. The new record consists of twelve songs including “Doin’ This” and “Tomorrow Me,” written by Combs, Dean Dillon and Ray Fulcher, of which Billboard praises, “Combs’s gruff voice brings gravitas to this introspective ballad.” Listen/share HERE. Full track list details to be announced soon.
Reflecting on the album, Combs shares, “I’ve been working on this album on and off for two and a half years now. It was sort of a crazy process through what COVID brought, and what that meant for our touring life last year. It made me have to put a pause on this album for a second, but I’m just really stoked that it’s finally coming out. Working with Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton as a producer has been really great and I think that the fans are going to love these songs. I’m just excited to get them out and see what they think.”
In celebration of the new music, Combs will continue to perform throughout the year with his sold-out “Middle of Somewhere” fall tour as well as upcoming sold-out stadium shows at Denver’s Empower Field at Mile High and Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, both of which rank among the fastest sell-outs in each venue’s history. Combs’ show at Seattle’s Lumen Field also achieved a massive opening weekend and is nearly sold-out. Altogether, Combs sold over 115,000 tickets in one day alone. He will also headline Napa’s BottleRock festival later this month, following recent headline performances at Stagecoach and New Orleans JazzFest. See below for complete tour itinerary.
A member of the Grand Ole Opry and a 6x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music Award-winner, Combs is in the midst of a record-setting and historic series of years. His previous release, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. With the record Combs reached #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. He also made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks.
