Luke Combs and Eric Church have something to celebrate this week as their collaborative hit single, “Does To Me,” reached the No.1 spot on both Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts.
Featured on Combs’ chart-topping sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get, the sentimental tune was an instant hit among the superstars’ fanbases. They recently released a music video to accompany the song and it features various social media clips from fans.
“When we started getting things ready for the ‘Does To Me’ music video, I knew I wanted my fans to be involved, so I had them share things that might not mean a lot to others, but did to them,” Combs writes in the opening sequence of the video.
The clip goes on to showcase social media-style photos of his fans while some of the song’s lyrics pop up as if they were being shared via text messages. Photos of weddings, proms, sports, families, fishing and much more flash across the screen as the superstars trade-off lyrics.
This marks Combs’ eighth consecutive No. 1 single. A first on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, the chart-topping success extends the North Carolina native’s record-breaking streak at country radio.
While in self-quarantine, Combs, a current ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee, has been keeping in touch with fans via live stream performances. He recently appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America to perform his emotional new track, “Six Feet Apart,” which was inspired by the current global health crisis.
Church has remained relatively quiet during this time, however, recently turned heads when he teased a new song called “Through My Ray Bans.”
