NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Luke Combs won New Artist of the Year at “The 52nd Annual CMA Awards.” The breakout artist also performed his four-week No. 1 single, “She Got The Best of Me,” on the live awards broadcast.

These milestones cap off a groundbreaking series of years for Combs following the release of his Platinum-certified debut album, This One’s For You, released on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville. Since its release June 2, 2017—75 weeks ago—the album has spent a total of seventeen non-consecutive weeks at No. 1, including thirteen weeks in 2018—the most of any album this year. Moreover, Combs is the first solo artist to score four consecutive career-opening No. 1’s on Billboard ’s Country Airplay chart with “She Got The Best of Me,” 3x Platinum “Hurricane,” 2x Platinum “When It Rains It Pours” and Platinum “One Number Away.” All four songs appear on the deluxe version of his debut album, This One’s For You Too, which is now available for vinyl pre-order. Arriving this Friday (11/16) the double LP features all fifteen deluxe album tracks plus two of Combs’ “CMT Crossroads” performances with Leon Bridges: “Beautiful Crazy” and “Beyond.”

Combs will embark on his largest North American headline tour in 2019—with 26 of the 28 venues already sold-out. The “Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour” features sold-out performances at Greensboro, NC’s Greensboro Coliseum, Greenville, SC’s Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Columbus, OH’s Schottenstein Center, Charlottesville, VA’s John Paul Jones Arena, New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, Omaha, NE’s HI Health Center and Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre among many others.
Since the release of This One’s For You, Combs has been named Billboard’s Top 100 Artist and Top New Country Artist of 2017, “Best New Country Artist” at the iHeart Radio Awards, Music Row’s “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year” and 2017 Artist To Watch by Amazon Music, Billboard, Bobby Bones, CMT, HuffPost, Nashville Lifestyles, Pandora and Rolling Stone.

This One’s For You was produced by Scott Moffatt (except for “One Number Away,” which was co-produced by Sammy Mitchell and Jackie Boyz) and recorded in Nashville, TN at Gold Cassette Studios and Direct Image Recording Studio. Released earlier this summer, This One’s For You Too debuted at No. 1 on Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 4 on Billboard 200 Chart.
