Luke Combs’ ‘Going, Going, Gone’ Goes Top 10 on Hot Country Songs Chart

Luke Combs notches his 17th top 10 on Billboard’s streaming-, airplay- and sales-powered Hot Country Songs chart, as “Going, Going, Gone” surges from No. 12 to No. 6 on the Jan. 14-dated survey.

Combs co-authored the song with Ray Fulcher and James McNair.

On Country Airplay, “Going” ranks at its No. 11 high, as it increased by 13% to 15.8 million impressions in the tracking week ending Jan. 5, according to Luminate. It also attracted 10.1 million official streams (up 31%) and sold 2,000 downloads (up 6%) in the U.S. in the tracking week.

“Going” marks Combs’ 17th Hot Country Songs top 10 and his first since “The Kind of Love We Make,” which became his fifth No. 1 when it logged its first of four frames atop the list last July. On Country Airplay, “Love” reached No. 2 in September. Prior to that, Combs achieved a record run of 14 straight career-opening No. 1 singles, dating to his debut hit “Hurricane” in 2017.

“Going” is the third single from Combs’ album Growin’ Up, which opened at No. 1 on Top Country Albums in July.

On Jan. 4, Combs took to social media to announce that he’ll release a new (as yet untitled) LP, sporting 18 songs, March 24.

Grimes Gallops to New Best

Luke Grimes, who stars on the popular Paramount TV series Yellowstone as Kayce Dutton, released his debut song, “No Horse to Ride,” Dec. 16. Grimes, who co-penned the track with Tony Lane and Jonathan Singleton, recently signed with Universal Music Group Nashville.

“Horse” was featured in the midseason finale of Yellowstone, which premiered Jan. 1, helping spark a 697% surge to 3,000 downloads sold in the week ending Jan. 5. The track re-enters Country Digital Song Sales at a new No. 7 high, after it debuted at No. 9 last month.
