He does it again.

Luke Combs scored his 18th chart-topper IN A ROW over the weekend with “Where The Wild Things Are,” a song from his 2023 Gettin’ Old album. Counting features, it’s Combs’ 20th #1 radio hit.

Written by Randy Montana and Dave Turnbull, it’s the fourth single from the aforementioned album, with an outlaw spirit that finds Combs telling the story of heading out to California on a wild hair and getting into some trouble on the west coast.

It’s currently at the top of the Mediabase chart, which is one of two charts labels use to officially track their songs performance (along with the U.S. Billboard Country Airplay chart):

This means that every single Luke has ever sent to country radio has become a #1 hit, beginning back in 2016 with his debut single “Hurricane.” Alabama has the country music record at 21 consecutive chart-toppers, which they achieved over a 7-year span from 1980 to 1987.

And with Luke still in the absolute prime of his career, not even at the peak of his success, I’d say there is a good chance he can make a serious run at the all-time record with this insane momentum.

It’s unprecedented what he’s doing in terms of streaming numbers and radio hits, and there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon…
