Luke Combs has set an unprecedented record on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, with the singer’s sophomore album, “What You See Is What You Get,” claiming the No. 1 spot again this week. This marks the album’s 25th week in the top slot, which makes Combs the first artist in the chart’s 56-year history to have his first two studio albums spend more than 25 weeks at No. 1. His debut album, “This One’s For You,” released in 2017, spent 50 weeks at No. 1.
