Luke Combs Nominated for Six CMA Awards

Luke Combs is nominated for six awards at the 54th Annual CMA Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year (What You See Is What You Get), Song of the Year ("Even Though I'm Leaving" performed by Combs and "I Hope You're Happy Now" performed by Carly Pearce and Lee Brice), Male Vocalist of the Year and Single of the Year ("Beer Never Broke My Heart"). Combs-who is the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year as well as Song of the Year recipient-unveiled the nominations earlier today on "Good Morning America" live from Nashville's Grand Ole Opry House. The awards ceremony will be broadcast on ABC Wednesday, November 11 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT.

The accolades are just the latest in a series of groundbreaking and historic years for Combs, whose current single, "Lovin' On You," is #1 this week on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. This is Combs' ninth-consecutive #1 single-a first on Billboard's Country Airplay chart-and extends his record-breaking streak at country radio. Combs also recently made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart-breaking Taylor Swift's previously held record at 24 weeks. The achievement comes as Combs' platinum-certified, global #1 record, What You See Is What You Get, topped the chart for the 25th time earlier this summer, while his 2017 debut, This One's For You, has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at #1-tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain's Come On Over in 1997.

Moreover, Combs his will release his new deluxe album, What You See Ain't Always What You Get, October 23 on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville. Pre-order/pre-save HERE. The extended edition will feature all 18 songs from What You See Is What You Get as well as five new tracks. Additional details to be announced soon.

Additional notable achievements and recognitions:

Nominated in three categories at the 55th ACM Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for What You See Is What You Get. Awarded New Male Artist of the Year at the 54th ACM Awards.

What You See Is What You Get enjoyed the largest streaming week ever for a
country album with 74 million on-demand streams upon its release in November 2019. It also achieved the biggest first week of album streams ever for a country artist on Apple Music and was the first country album ever to hit #1 on the platform's U.S. overall albums chart, while also setting a new global record for first-week streams for a country album at Spotify and breaking the Amazon Music record for more first-week streams than any other country album debut.
