Luke Combs is breaking his own records.

Luke's current single, "Beer Never Broke My Heart," ascended to #1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart this week. With his latest #1 single, Luke is first country artist in history whose first six singles have reached #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 #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.

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.

Dwight Yoakam and Larry Gatlin are just two of the 2019 inductees into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, in a class that also includes Marcus Hummon, Kostas Lazarides, Rivers Rutherford and Sharon Vaughn. 

The newest batch of songwriters to join the Hall of Fame were announced yesterday.

Yoakam was unable to make it to the annoucement, but he sent a video message and said, “Over the years, I've been acknowledged for the recordings I've made, but oftentimes the public's unaware that many of the songs I recorded, and many that became hits, were things that I wrote or co-wrote. So thank you for acknowledging that.”

The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Class of 2019 will officially be inducted during a gala on October 14th.
