“That was a title in my head for a song for a while. I had a couple of buddies out on the bus for a weekend maybe a year and a half or two years ago, and they were like, “Man that’s great.” It ended up being one of those things that, you know, we all have things that let us down throughout the course of our lives, whatever that may be. And we thought, you know, always a great pick-me-up is a nice beer. It’s that simple.”
“I don’t claim to be Merle Haggard or anything, but when I write songs I just want to write stuff that I like singing.”

HUGE congratulations to @lukecombs who tied “Always & Forever” this week as the longest leading #1 album by a male artist on the @billboard country albums chart (43 weeks). We’ve held on for a long time (since 1987) but it’s good to see a true, consistently top-quality, country artist breaking records and proving albums still sell. This One’s For You, Luke! . . #countrymusic #thisonesforyou #lukecombs #randytravis #charts #records #albumsstillsell #success #quality
Combs breaks the record for the most weeks by a male at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
The LP passes Randy Travis’s Always & Forever, which lead for 43 weeks beginning in June 1987.

Luke just announced a new LP coming November 8.

“I think I’m having this really awesome moment right now where everything seems to be working. I don’t ever plan on trying to figure out why. I don’t want to change anything.
“We’re trying to lay the foundation for a career that can last for 20 or 30 years. I don’t think any of us want to have this kind of success and then go away in six months.”

As far as career achievements go, I mean to me, this (being inducted into the Grand Ole @Opry) is the No. 1 thing. When I moved here (Nashville), all I knew is that if I could pay my rent and have enough food to eat doing music, then that to me was my definition of “I’ve made it.” I’m the proof that you can do anything that you set your mind to. It’s the relationships with people and the way you foster them that lead to things like this happening. And if I didn’t have a great team, and I didn’t have a great family, and I didn’t have great friends and a great fiancé then I wouldn’t be standing up here today; so I think that would be my biggest takeaway is that you can do anything as long as you have the right people there to help you achieve your goals. This is just… an institution and to me, it’s beyond country music; it is country music. Definitely will and always forever be the No. 1 career achievement for me over winning this or winning that or going to this or selling out that. This is the thing that nobody can ever take away from me, which I think is what I’m so proud of. Video: @zackmassey
“You just never think it’s going to happen.” “When they asked, I literally couldn’t believe it. I didn’t even know what to say. There’s nothing to say but yes, and I didn’t even say yes. I just cried the whole time.”
