September 9, 2021—Reigning Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year award-winner Luke Combs is nominated in three categories at the 55th Annual CMA AwardsEntertainer of the YearMale Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year (“Forever After All”). The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on ABC from Nashville on Wednesday, November 10 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT.
The nominations add to a monumental year for Combs, who recently earned his eleventh-consecutive #1 single with the platinum-certified “Forever After All,” a first on the chart the Billboard Country Airplay chart. “Forever After All” was also his tenth single to spend multiple weeks atop the chart and his eighth consecutive, multi-week #1 single. The song, which debuted at #2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart this past November—the highest entrance ever for a male country solo artist—is also the sixth-consecutive #1 from Combs’ deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, tying the record for most #1 singles to come from the same album. Furthering his triumphant run at county radio, Combs’ current single, “Cold As You,” is currently top 15 at country radio and rising. Moreover, Combs recently released his new song, “South On Ya,” which has been selected as the official theme song for the SEC Network’s 2021 football season.
Out now via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart last fall. The deluxe edition features all 18 tracks from Combs’ double Platinum-certified, global #1 album, What You See Is What You Get, as well as five new songs. With the release, Combs reached #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 #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 last summer, while his 2017 debut, This One’s For You, has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at #1—tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain’s Come On Over in 1997.
Adding to an already groundbreaking and historic career, Combs will embark on an extensive headline arena tour this fall featuring a special new in-the-round stage design. Kicking off this weekend at Raleigh’s PNC Arena (two nights), the tour includes stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden (two nights), San Francisco’s Chase Center, Houston’s Toyota Center, Chicago’s United Center (two nights), Dallas’ American Airlines Center (two nights) and Boston’s TD Garden (two nights) among several others. See below for complete itinerary.
