Breaking record, after record, after record, after record, after record… it just goes on and on.
This week, Luke officially tied Garth Brooks for the 3rd longest run atop the Billboard Country Albums chart. Luke’s This One’s For You tied Garth’s 1990 smash album, No Fences, with 41 weeks at No. 1 on the charts.
Only Shania Twain’s Come on Over, which topped the charts for 50 weeks in 1997 and 1998, and Randy Travis’ Always & Forever, which did 43 weeks beginning 1987, have more weeks at No. 1.
Since its release on June 2, 2017, This One’s for You has earned 2.3 million equivalent album units, with 499,000 in traditional album sales. Not to mention, his new EP, The Prequel, is currently sitting at #3 on the charts as well. And, on top of all of that, earlier this month, Luke became the first, and only, artist since Johnny Cash to have 5 different songs chart in the Top 25 of the Billboard Hot Country chart at one time.
We are witnessing country music history unfold right in front of our very eyes. A legend in the making.
