Luke Combs Songs That Propel Him to The Top of the Country’s Music Charts

Bringing together a love of classic country and 70’s funk-soul music, Luke Combs songs skillfully renew these traditional sounds with a hint of modern R&B. This blend, which thrived on ballads, helped Combs be off the beaten path of slick country-pop crooners and bro-country revelers, a difference that helped him become a hit immediately from the start.

And not only is he skyrocketing to the top, but he is also going straight into the history book. Every single he has actually released to country radio made it atop the Country Airplay chart – a first in the chart’s history. He headlined sold-out concerts in Europe and garnered a nomination for numerous CMA Awards like no other. And he has gained such massive success in such a short period of time. 

Let us walk you through some of Luke Combs‘ greatest hits through the years.

1. “When It Rains It Pours”

From: This One’s for You (2017)

Fresh off a breakup, Combs co-wrote the lighthearted song with songwriters Ray Fulcher and Jordan Walker. “When It Rains It Pours” tells the story of a man who gained a streak of luck after his lover dumped him – something Combs had gone through.

2. “Beautiful Crazy”

From: This One’s for You (2017)

The love song “Beautiful Crazy” helped Combs take home Country Music Awards trophy for Song of the Year in 2019 – an honor he called “the number one thing on my bucket list” in addition to being a Grand Ole Opry member.

3. “Better Together”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

Combs goes beyond the obvious cliches, describing his relationship with his lover like a perfect pair of “a cup of coffee and a sunrise” and how “good ol’ boys and beer” go well together in “Better Together.” 

It’s actually the second song of the three-part love story with his wife, Nicole.

4. “Hurricane”

From: This One’s for You (2017)

Can you imagine accidentally bumping into a former lover? Well, Combs absolutely knows how it feels that he compared the experience to the damage caused by a hurricane.

5. “Forever After All”

From: What You See Ain’t Always What You Get (2020)

The song entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 2, marking the highest entry ever for a male country solo artist since 1999. It’s actually the first song he wrote after he and Nicole moved into their home in Tennessee. 

6. “She Got the Best of Me”

From: Can I Get an Outlaw (2014)

When Combs wrote the post-breakup song four years before its recording, little did he know it would be hailed as one of his best live songs and a fan favorite. 

7. “Beer Never Broke My Heart”

From: The Prequel (2019)

The singer-songwriter noted how he’d been hurt in life in “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” that led him to the ultimate realization: there’s no single moment beer has let him down.

8. “Even Though I’m Leaving”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

The singer may not have been a father yet or has experienced the feelings and emotions of losing a parent. Still, he admits he got choked up while writing “Even Though I’m Leaving,” which follows a little boy’s relationship with his father.

9. “One Number Away”

From: This One’s for You (2017)

Do you have someone on your mind who’s one number away? Combs does, and sadly, it was his former lover – which makes moving on much harder.

10. “Does to Me”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

Combs joined forces with country singer Eric Church to celebrate small successes like a baseball hit, a prom date, among others. After all, there’s nothing wrong with being proud of the little things.

11. “1, 2 Many”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

The country star sings about how there’s no stopping him as soon as he has a beer in hand in “1, 2 Many” – which was aimed for the entertaining, fierce, free-spiritedness that epitomized ’90s country.

12. “Six Feet Apart”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

Luke Combs new song is a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which perfectly captures what fans and artists all over the world are feeling right now for being stuck at homes and missing family and friends, including the things they love to do.

13. “Nothing Like You”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

Another song inspired by his wife, “Nothing Like You,” is Combs’ love letter to his wife while he was on a tour where he tells her the beautiful things he’s seen, like the “Carolina sky that was so blue.”

14. “Cold As You”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

Combs plays the role of “broke-heart fool” – sitting on a barstool “drinkin’ beer almost as cold as you” – in this song, which he first teased during his Grand Ole Opry Livestream.

15. “The Other Guy”

From: What You See Is What You Get (2019)

The song finds Combs bumping into an ex-girlfriend who’s heard he’s doing well. He reassures her that it’s everything’s fine – however, the chorus revealed that there are two sides to him.
