Earlier this week, Combs 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 (dated March 9 and March 30).
The success comes on the heels of Combs’ 2x Platinum single, “Beautiful Crazy,” which remains #1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart for the third-straight week and holds strong at #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for the fifth-straight week. This is his fastest rising single to date (15 weeks) and makes Combs the first artist ever to send his first five singles to the top of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. “Beautiful Crazy” is also the first country single shipped to radio already platinum-certified since Taylor Swift’s “Red” in 2013 and has more than 301 million on-demand streams. In celebration of these milestones, Combs recently released an acoustic version of the song. Listen/share HERE.
Already the 2019 ACM Award-winner for New Male Artist of the Year, Combs is also nominated for Male Artist of the Year at this year’s awards and will perform during the ceremony. The 2019 ACM Awards will broadcast live on CBS from MGM Grand’s Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 7 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT.
These achievements add to an already monumental year for Combs, whose breakthrough debut album This One’s For You is now certified RIAA double Platinum. Since it’s release June 2, 2017, the album has spent a total of 29 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, including 16 weeks in 2018—making it the highest selling country album last year with 1.1 million equivalent album units sold and the only country album to surpass 1 million album units. It’s also the most-streamed country album of 2019 so far. Additionally, Combs was recently named Country Artist of the Year at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, New Artist of the Year at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards, was nominated for Best New Artist at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and was the recipient of a CMA Triple Play Award for writing three #1 songs in a 12 month period.
