Q: Can you talk about Better Together and what that song means to you and Nicole?

LC: I wrote this song in Boone probably two years ago, something like that, my buddies Dan Isbell and Randy Montana were up there. “Beautiful Crazy” was already done and out at that time, so I kinda felt like I needed to do another song that was kind of, I guess it’s kind of ended up turning into like a trilogy,
“Beautiful Crazy,” and then it’s “Better Together,” and then “Forever After All” and that’s kind of our whole story up to this point in a way. You know, I just wanted her to know that I’m always thinking about her, and there’s always inspiration there. This song just happened to be what we came up with that day.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—ACM, CMA and CMT Award-winning artist Luke Combs’ current single, “Better Together,” is No. 1 this week on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. A first on the chart, this is Combs’ tenth-consecutive No. 1 single extending his record-breaking streak at country radio. 

The accomplishment continues a groundbreaking and historic series of years for Combs, whose global No. 1 record, What You See Is What You Get, is newly certified RIAA double Platinum. The award-winning album’s 18 tracks along with five new songs are also featured on Combs’ new deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, which debuted No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Additionally, the deluxe album’s song, “Forever After All,” landed at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart—the highest entrance ever for a male country solo artist. With the release, Combs also reached No. 1 on Rolling Stone ’s Top 200 Albums chart, Top 100 Songs chart and Artists 500 chart—the first country artist ever to lead all three charts in the same week and first to top the Artists 500. 

Combs also recently made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks. The achievement comes as 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 No. 1—tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain’s Come On Over in 1997.
