Over the last several years, Luke Combs and country radio have gone together like peanut butter and jelly.

That match made in heaven is alive and well this week as Combs once again sits atop the country radio charts. His current single, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, secured the No. 1 spot on Mediabase, marking his 18th career No. 1 since releasing his debut single, 'Hurricane', in 2016.

The Gettin' Old single has been consistently creeping up the chart since the start of 2024, as well as riding high elsewhere. The tune currently sits at No. 6 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, where it continues its climb.

The richly narrative track, co-written by Randy Montana and Dave Turnbull, was originally considered by country stalwart Eric Church who ultimately decided not to cut the tune. Years of the song laying dormant and artist-less, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ eventually perked Combs’ ear, the lyrics striking a chord with him.

“I don’t know how that song never get cut, because it’s an awesome, awesome song,” the artist shared with Country Now.

Combs, of course, is no stranger to the top of the charts.

His rendition of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’ celebrated the same chart position in the summer 2023 and has garnered a number of accolades since, including Single of the Year at last year's CMA Awards. Most recently, the pair performed at duet of the 1988 classic onstage at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.

Soon, the country bigwig will take his latest radio No. 1, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, as well as the rest of his success-studded repertoire on the road. His Growin' Up and Gettin' Old Tour kicks off this April and will see Combs criss-cross North America through the summer.
