Luke Combs’ “Beer Never Broke My Heart” Sets Record for Most Adds at Mediabase

Luke Combs’ new single “Beer Never Broke My Heart” has set the record for most adds on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart with 149 adds this week—breaking the record set by Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break” in 2015. “Beer Never Broke My Heart” also marks Combs’ highest debut on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart to date and is the chart’s top entrance by any act since September 2012. 

This achievement continues an already monumental year for Combs, whose new single premiered worldwide at country radio last week and is now available to stream/purchase HERE. Additionally, watch the song’s official music video HERE. In celebration of the release, Combs recently performed the track on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Watch/share HERE

Combs is also nominated for two awards at the 2019 CMT Music Awards: Video of the Year(“She Got The Best of Me”) and CMT Performance of the Year (“Beautiful Crazy” from CMT Crossroads with Leon Bridges). The awards ceremony will broadcast live on CMT from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, June 5 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT.

Additionally, Combs 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 (dated March 9, March 30 and April 6). Combs’ previous 2x platinum single, “Beautiful Crazy,” spent seven-straight weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart—tying the second longest run atop the chart since its launch in 1990. “Beautiful Crazy” is Combs’ fastest rising single to date (15 weeks) and makes Combs the first artist ever to send his first five singles to the top of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. “Beautiful Crazy” is also the first country single shipped to radio already platinum-certified since Taylor Swift’s “Red” in 2013 and has more than 360 million on-demand streams. In celebration of these milestones, Combs recently performed an acoustic version of the song during the 2019 ACM Awards live broadcast. Watch/share HERE. Of the performance, Billboard praises, “…a stirring version of the hit single…the arrangement breathed a second life into a song that many would have stated was perfect as is beforehand,”while Rolling Stone declares, “…Combs showed why he’s one of the genre’s most promising young voices.”

Continuing his landmark year, Combs sold out venues in 25 of the 29 cities on his newly confirmed “Beer Never Broke My Heart” fall tour in the first weekend tickets were on-sale. He broke records at Bozeman’s Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, Bloomington’s Grossinger Motors Arena and Bossier City’s CenturyLink Center for the fastest sell out times in venue history. Additional sold-out shows include Kansas City’s Sprint Center, Portland’s Moda Center, Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center, Phoenix’s Talking Stick Resort Arena, Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena among several others. Special guests throughout the tour include Morgan Wallen, The Cadillac Three and Jameson Rodgers. See below for complete tour details.

Since the release of his double platinum certified debut album, This One’s For You, on June 2, 2017, the album spent a total of 34 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart—the longest reign for a solo male artist in over 25 years. The album also spent 16 weeks at #1 in 2018—making it the highest selling country album last year with 1.1 million equivalent album units sold and the only country album to surpass 1 million album units. It’s also the most-streamed country album of 2019 so far. Additionally, Combs was awarded Top Country Artist, Top Country Male Artist and Top Country Album at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, New Male Artist of the Year at the 2019 ACM Awards, Country Artist of the Year at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, New Artist of the Year at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards, was nominated for Best New Artist at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and was the recipient of a CMA Triple Play Award for writing three #1 songs in a 12 month period.
