Luke Combs Is Preventing Luke Combs From Breaking Luke Combs’ All-Time Billboard Chart Record

Luke Combs is preventing Luke Combs from breaking Luke Combs’ all-time Billboard chart record. Yes, that’s a mouthful, but here’s the deal.

In late October 2019, Luke’s 2017 debut album, This One’s for You, reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart for the 50th week, tying him with Shania Twain’s Come On Over for the all-time record of most weeks at No. 1.

Since November, a number of A-list artists have dropped new albums that debuted at No. 1, including Old Dominion (Nov. 9), Miranda Lambert (Nov. 16), Jason Aldean (Dec. 7), Blake Shelton (Dec. 28) and Luke Combs (Nov. 23), who released his sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get.

Luke’s new album has already spent five weeks at No. 1, including this week.

No. 2 on the chart this week? Luke’s This One’s for You. In essence, Luke prevented himself from breaking his tie with Shania this week.

Yes, this is all in good fun.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
