Country superstar Luke Combs is making history once again as he’s become the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No.1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. The ACM, CMA and CMT award-winning artist’s new record breaks the previous record of 24 weeks, held by Taylor Swift.

The news comes as Combs’ latest album, What You See Is What You Get, returns to the top of the chart this week, while his 2017 debut album, This One’s For You, has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at No.1, previously tying the record for the longest No.1 album with Shania Twain’s 1997 release, Come On Over.

Combs, who is currently making his way back up the country radio charts with his new single, “Lovin’ On You,” is currently nominated in three categories for the upcoming 55th Academy of Country Music Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for What You See Is What You Get. To celebrate, Combs will perform his latest single on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Thursday, July 16.
