Luke Combs’ Streak Of 13 Consecutive #1 Hits On Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart Comes To An End After “The Kind of Love We Make” Peaks At #2

It’s the end of an era.

After 13 straight #1 singles on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, Luke Combs’ insane streak of radio hits has come to an end.

His most recent single “The Kind of Love We Make” just peaked at the top spot on the Mediabase country chart about a week ago, which is one of two charts labels use to officially track their songs performance (the other one being the aforementioned Billboard Country Airplay chart).

Starting with his debut, mega hit single “Hurricane” back in 2016, it’s been back-to-back-to-back with hit after hit for Luke, along with others like “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “Beautiful Crazy,” “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” and many more.

It’s unprecedented how many hits in a row the North Carolina native has put out, and it’s really a true testament to his talent and ability to resonate with the masses as an artist.

But unfortunately, it failed to surpass Cole Swindell’s hit “She Had Me at Heads Carolina,” which is currently the top song on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, as Luke’s tune fizzled out at the #2 spot on that specific chart.

“The Kind of Love We Make” was very close to taking top honors, though, and it also went #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, spent two weeks as the Mediabase #1, was in the Top 3 on Billboard Streaming, and Top 5 in country sales…

So while the overall #1 streak is still intact, the Country Airplay Chart streak is done.

Not too shabby, eh?

And I mean, Luke said it himself, “nothing lasts forever,” so it was bound to come to an end one day, and it sure has been a helluva run for the country superstar.

His long lasting, six-year streak of consecutive #1’s on the Country Airplay Chart may be over, but I have a feeling there are many, many more big hits in his future… this train ain’t slowing down any time soon, that’s for sure.

The song itself is a sweet, sappy tune about doing the deed (if you couldn’t tell by the title), and was co-written by Luke along with The Brothers Hunt, Jamie Davis and Dustin Nunley.

And it seems likely that the next single from his Growin’ Up album will be the duet with the great Miranda Lambert “Outrunnin’ Your Memory,” which in my mind, is another easy #1 for two of the best mainstream artists in all of country music.
