Luke Combs continues to break records this week following the release of his new EP, The Prequel—out now via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here). All five tracks from the EP are currently in Billboard ‘s Hot Country Songs Top 25—a feat not accomplished by any artist in 60 years since Johnny Cash in 1959—and are also in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Country Songs Sales chart. Additionally, Combs has achieved the largest streaming week ever for a country artist and currently holds the top two spots on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with The Prequel (No. 1) and his debut album, This One’s For You (No. 2). The Prequel also debuted at No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. Adding to a monumental few weeks, Combs was recently invited to be the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry.
