On October 23, 2020, Luke Combs released what would become his highest charting single, and the highest Hot 100 debut ever for a male country artist. The song, “Forever After All,” debuted at the number two spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and went number one the very next week.
Combs first teased the song – which was inspired by his wife, Nicole – on Tik Tok and Instagram before performing the entire thing on Facebook the day he released it.
“Forever After All” was included on What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, which is the deluxe version of his second studio album What You See Is What You Get.
Standing on the stage at The Grand Ole Opry, Combs brought his love song to the 2021 ACM Awards, where he stands to win three awards!
Combs was nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, and Music Event of the Year for “Does To Me” with Eric Church. He was the reigning Male Artist of the Year. While he didn’t win any awards that night, he stole the show with this incredible performance.
