Luke Combs is breaking his own records.
Luke’s current single, “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” ascended to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart this week. With his latest No. 1 single, Luke is first country artist in history whose first six singles have reached No. 1, following previous chart-toppers “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “She Got the Best of Me” and “Beautiful Crazy.”
When “Beautiful Crazy” topped the charts in March, Luke Combs became the first country artist in history whose first five singles reached No. 1.
Luke co-penned “Beer Never Broke My Heart” with Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana while on the road for his Don’t Tempt Me With a Good Time Tour.
“We wrote ‘Beer Never Broke My Heart’ on the tour bus, actually, on my first headlining tour—the Don’t Tempt Me with a Good Time Tour,” says Luke. “I had my buddies Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana out on the bus with me, and I had had this title on my phone for a long time and really wanted to save it for some guys that I thought would kind of understand and grasp what I was looking for out of the song. I went to soundcheck and I got back, and they had kind of been hammering away on this thing . . . we buttoned it up, and it’s just been a fan-favorite ever since then.”
Luke recently made history as the first artist to simultaneously top all five Billboard country charts for multiple weeks: Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales.
