Luke Combs has another trophy to add to his ever-growing collection.

The superstar was just revealed as the recipient of the Nashville Songwriter Awards’ Songwriter-Artist of the Year Award for the second consecutive year.

Billboard was the first to report the news and also revealed that Ashley Gorley was named the Songwriter of the Year.

Combs has enjoyed unprecedented success since bursting on to the country music scene in 2016 with his debut hit, “Hurricane.” Since then, the North Carolina native has gone on to the release nine consecutive No.1 hits.

According to Billboard, the Songwriter-Artist of the Year Award is determined by “a mathematical formula that takes into account the percentage of a Nashville-associated song the artist recorded that he/she is credited with writing and the song’s performance on a week to week basis in the Top 20 of the Billboard Country Airplay Chart, Billboard Pop Songs Chart, Billboard Christian Airplay Chart or Billboard Rock Airplay Chart.” The dates considered for the award include May 1, 2019 through April 30, 2020.

Combs’ chart-topping hits “Beautiful Crazy,”  “Beer Never Broke My Heart,”  “Does to Me,” and “Even Though I’m Leaving” were each released during the eligibility period.
