Luke Combs Lands 14th Straight Country Airplay Leader With ‘Doin’ This’

Plus, new country chart top 10s for Tim McGraw and Scotty McCreery.

Luke Combs banks his record-extending 14th consecutive career-opening No. 1 single on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart as “Doin’ This” jumps from No. 4 to the top, up 16% to 24 million impressions in the week ending May 15, according to Luminate.

Combs penned the song with Drew Parker and Robert Williford. It’s the lead single from his June 24 album, Growin’ Up.

The track follows Combs’ “Cold as You,” which led Country Airplay for a week last November, after Jameson Rodgers’ “Cold Beer Calling My Name,” featuring Combs, ruled for a week in October.
