Way back in 1959, well before Luke Combs was around, Johnny Cash had five songs on the Billboard Country Charts. Now Luke Combs has managed that feat as well. Cash became the very first artist to have five songs in the Top 25 onBillboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart at the same time. The week of May 25, 1959 was the first week Cash achieved this feat, one that he replicated for two more weeks.
The five songs that were in the Top 25 simultaneously were the following:
No. 8: “Luther Played the Boogie”
No. 11: “Frankie’s Man, Johnny”
No. 14: “You Dreamer You”
No. 15: “Thanks a Lot”
No. 20: “Don’t Take Your Guns to Town”
For the past 60 years, no artist has ever come close to achieving this incredible feat…until now.
Just a few days after he was invited to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry, Combs has officially done something no one else but Johnny Cash has done. Combs recently released a five-track EP titledThe Prequel, and all five tracks are currently in the Top 25 onBillboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart. Big congrats to Luke for this astounding accomplishment!
