Luke Combs Wins ACM Awards for Album of the Year and Male Artist of the Year

Luke Combs won ACM Awards for Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year (What You See Is What You Get), marking the first time he has copped awards in the aforementioned categories.

Luke’s 2019 sophomore album features four No. 1 hits: “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” “Even Though I’m Leaving,” “Does to Me” and “Lovin’ On You.”

“To get married this year was a really amazing, amazing bright spot in my life as well as 2020, which has been a really strange year,” said Luke backstage. “And to have tonight on top of it. You know, I could’ve never imagined taking two awards home tonight. And I’m just thankful for my team, and for my wife, and for my family, and for the fans. And I’m just grateful.”

Luke is the first country artist in history whose first nine singles have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Of Luke’s nine No. 1 hits on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, eight have had multi-week runs at No. 1. Luke’s 2018 No. 1 hit, “One Number Away,” ruled the chart for one week, while “Beautiful Crazy” reigned for seven weeks in 2019.

The ACM Awards aired live from Nashville on Sept. 16 with first-time host Keith Urban. The show took place at three iconic Nashville institutions: the Grand Ole Opry House, The Bluebird Cafe and Ryman Auditorium.
