Recently, Combs simultaneously topped all five Billboard country charts for multiple weeks: Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales. He made history as the first artist to do so.

Combs broke the record set by Randy Travis for the most weeks at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart by a male artist. Travis’ Always and Forever started its tenure at No. 1 on June 1987. The album remained there for 43 non-consecutive weeks, through June 1988. Combs is at it with 44 weeks at No. 1 for his album This One’s for You. Shania Twain holds the overall record, with 50 weeks for her 1997 album, Come on Over.
