Luke Combs Is 3 Weeks Shy of Shania Twain’s All-Time Chart Record

Luke Combs is inching closer to one of country music’s most impressive records.

Once again this week, Luke’s 2017 debut album, This One’s for You, is No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. The double-Platinum album, which has moved 2 million units according to the RIAA, has now spent 47 weeks at No. 1.

Only Shania Twain’s Come On Over, which led for 50 weeks from 1997–2000, has spent more time at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Come On Over has been certified as 20x Platinum by the RIAA for sales of 20 million units.

Will Luke’s This One’s For You break Shania’s chart record? While the odds appear favorable, let’s take a look at some of the big names releasing albums in the coming weeks before Luke drops his sophomore set on Nov. 8.
