Luke Combs just broke a 60-year chart record held by a country music legend.

Following the release of his new five-song EP, The Prequel, Combs has five tracks currently in the top 25 of Billboard ‘s Hot Country Songs Chart, making him the first artist since Johnny Cash in 1959 to accomplish this feat. Additionally, all five tracks are in the top 10 of Billboard’s Country Songs Sales chart.

Following his emotional surprise invitation to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry, the good news just keeps coming for the superstar because he also just achieved the biggest streaming week for a country artist ever. On top of that, he currently holds the top spots on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with The Prequel, which is at No. 1, and his debut album, This One’s For You, which follows at No. 2.

Combs’ current single, “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” marks his highest radio debut to date and set the record for most adds on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart with 149 adds.

Fans can catch Combs on his Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour throughout the summer and fall.
