Luke Combs continues his record-breaking chart success this week, notching yet another milestone with his debut album, This One’s For You. 

Originally released on June 2, 2017, This One’s For You has now spent a whopping 44 weeks at No.1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. With this accomplishment, Combs now holds the record for the longest reign ever for a male artist and second-longest for an artist overall. (He follows just behind Shania Twain’s Come On Over, which spent 50 weeks at No.1 in 1997.)

Also this week, Combs earns his sixth consecutive chart-topping single as his latest hit, “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” sits atop both Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart. Reaching the top of the charts in just 13 weeks, “Beer Never Broke My Heart” is now Combs’ fastest-rising single to date.

“Beer Never Broke My Heart” is the lead single from Combs’ The Prequel EP, which shot to No.1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart upon its release in June. Following the release, each of the EP’s five tracks were included in the top 25 of Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs Chart, making him the first artist since Johnny Cash in 1959 to accomplish that feat.
