Luke Combs returned to the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week, this time with his latest hit, “Forever After All.” 

This marks Combs’ 11th consecutive No.1, a first on the chart. The fan-favorite track also tops Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Country Streaming Songs charts this week, after debuting at N0.2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 last fall. 

“Forever After All” marks his sixth consecutive chart-topper from his deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get. With this achievement, Combs ties the record for the most No.1 singles from the same album. That record is currently also held by Luke Bryan for his album, Kill The Lights

Combs’ six No.1 singles from What You See Ain’t Always What You Get include: “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” “Even Though I’m Leaving,” “Does To Me” (feat. Eric Church), “Lovin’ On You,” “Better Together,” and “Forever After All.” 

Combs brought the love song to life earlier this month with the release of a brand new music video featuring never-before-seen footage from his wedding.

“All of my music videos mean a lot to me, but this one is super special since it features a lot of footage from Nicole’s and my wedding,” Combs shared upon the release of the video. “That was the best day of my life and I’m super lucky to be married to my best friend. I definitely got choked up watching it, and it will be something we hold on to and always cherish.”

“Forever After All” was written in honor of Nicole and is the third song in a series of hits dedicated to his longtime love.

“1st came ‘Beautiful Crazy,’ then ‘Better Together,’ and now ‘Forever After All,’” the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year previously shared.
