River House Artists / Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Luke Combs releases his highly-anticipated debut album This One’s For You today, June 2. The album, which Combs co-wrote all twelve tracks on the project, produced the North Carolina native’s PLATINUM-certified two-week No. 1 hit single, “Hurricane”- the first for a debut solo country male artist in 9 years – and debuts today at No. 1 atop the iTunes Country Albums chart and No. 2 on iTunes Overall Albums Chart. Remarking on the album, NPR Music heralds Combs for “demonstrating current pop fluency and a connection with the sturdy contributions of previous generations of country performers” and Entertainment Weekly calls This One’s For You a “dynamic debut album.” Listen to This One’s For You HERE.
