Luke Combs continues to position himself as a country music powerhouse. His debut album, This One’s for You, not only notched the No. 5 spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, but also the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Country Albums chart.

The breakthrough project became the biggest album debut from a new country star in 2017 after its release on June 2.

“I’m blown away at the response to This One’s for You. As a songwriter and artist, there is nothing more rewarding or humbling than to have your songs embraced by fans,” Combs says. “I’m grateful for all the folks who have shown up to shows over the years, told their friends about these songs and been a part of the path to get here.”

This is just one of many triumphs Combs has experienced in his young career. His debut single, “Hurricane,” was certified platinum after topping Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and cracking the Top 5 on the Hot Country Songs chart. The song’s two-week stay on the Country Airplay chart made Combs the first artist in five years to have a multi-week No. 1 hit with their debut single since Florida Georgia Line did it in 2012 with “Cruise,” and the first male solo artist to achieve the accomplishment since Darius Rucker’s “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” in 2008.

Combs’ second single, “When it Rains it Pours,” is currently on country radio. He’s on the road with Brantley Gilbert for his 2017 Devil Don’t Sleep Tour through early fall.
