After making its radio 2 debut this morning with Ken Bruce, currently the best-selling country artist in the UK, Luke Combs, today announces his new single ‘Forever After All’, taken from his US chart topping, record breaking, deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get. Listen HERE.
Luke will be taking part in BBC Radio 2’s House Music Sessions for Ken Bruce on March 12th, where he will perform ‘Forever After All’ & ‘Refrigerator Door’ alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra. All of this activity marks a year since what would have been a hands down rapturous headline slot at 2020’s C2C Festival.
As well as being the biggest US country artist in the UK, his debut album This One’s For You has smashed 100,000 UK sales, and What You See Is What You Get (including the deluxe version) is fast approaching 75,000 sales. The releases have also spawned five tracks featured on the BBC Radio 2 playlist, and it was recently announced that Luke has been nominated in three categories at the 56th ACM Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year (“Does To Me” feat. Eric Church).
It continues to be a groundbreaking time for Luke Combs, whose global No. 1 record, What You See Is What You Get, is newly certified RIAA double Platinum. The award-winning album’s 18 tracks along with five new songs are also featured on Combs’ new deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, which debuted No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
Additionally, the deluxe album’s song, “Forever After All,” landed at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart—the highest entrance ever for a male country solo artist. With the release, Combs also reached No. 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.
Combs also recently made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks. The achievement comes as What You See Is What You Get topped the chart for the 25th time earlier this summer, while his 2017 debut, This One’s For You, has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1—tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain’s Come On Over in 1997.
