Combs is the first artist to lead the list with his first two entries since Kelsea Ballerini.

Luke Combs collects his second No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart (dated Nov. 4) in as many appearances, as "When It Rains It Pours" ascends 2-1, rising by 6 percent to 43.5 million impressions, according to Nielsen Music.

"Rains" is the second single from Combs' This One's for You, which bowed atop the June 24 Top Country Albums chart (43,000 units). Lead single "Hurricane" topped Country Airplay for two weeks beginning May 27.

Combs is the first artist to crown Country Airplay with two maiden entries since Kelsea Ballerini, who led with "Love Me Like You Mean It" and "Dibs" in 2015 and 2016, respectively. He is the first male artist to go two for two from the start since Sam Hunt, with "Leave the Night On" and "Take Your Time" in 2014 and 2015.

On Hot Country Songs, which blends airplay, streaming and sales data, Combs' "Rains" rises 3-2, marking a new personal best. "Hurricane" hit No. 3.

'GIRLS' AND BOYS: Also on Hot Country Songs, three tracks hit the top 10, led by Kip Moore's "More Girls Like You." The song skips 12-8, marking his fourth top 10 and first since 2013's No. 8-peaking "Hey Pretty Girl." On Country Airplay, "Girls" gains 5-4 (41.1 million, up 13 percent).

Luke Bryan's "Light It Up," the lead single from his Dec. 8 LP What Makes You Country, hops 11-9 on Hot Country Songs, marking his 12th top 10. The song likewise lifts 11-9 on Country Airplay (where it first hit the top 10 two weeks ago), up 9 percent to 28.9 million.

Plus, Blake Shelton rolls up his 29th Hot Country Songs top 10 with "I'll Name the Dogs," which zooms 15-10. On Country Airplay, it rises 13-11 (25.6 million, up 10 percent).
