Me side eye radio giving Luke Combs nearly +300 spin increases
I can honestly say I don't know because I didn't use to follow charts very much, to be frank, I still don't that often! But some of these songs my parrots could sing better!I mean, wasn’t Carrie getting this treatment earlier in her career also? lol her songs would go to #1 very quickly…
I'm sure she did like the rest of them, but for me it should be about pure natural progression, but that would never happen...I mean, wasn’t Carrie getting this treatment earlier in her career also? lol her songs would go to #1 very quickly…

I know the average time for a song to go #1 upon entering the top 10 is about 2 months (unless its a massive hit), that should put GS going #1 sometime in mid September to early October. Do we think Combs will be #1 by then and falling?Have not liked a single Luke combs song and I can’t see how anyone does. He just screams his songs like he’s angry and they all sound exactly the same.
as for the charts, I doubt Luke is a problem for Carrie. If he climbs this fast he will peak way before GS does but it’s unlikely they peak at the very same time considering GS is about to be #11 next week and top 10 by very early July
It would annoy me as well, especially considering Combs’ mediocrity and radio blindly playing ant new shouting minute of his. But I think it’s very unlikely Combs is a problem. It doesn’t seem possible for him to climb fast enough . He’d have to peak in like 11 weeks and at this rate, which I don’t know it continues, he would end up peaking before GS. But he probably slows down enough to miss impacting GS. Of course also, Jason’s label pushed for several weeks and only blocked one song, and then they are pushing for several for Parmalee and are not going to block Wallen, he’s just going to wait it outI know the average time for a song to go #1 upon entering the top 10 is about 2 months (unless its a massive hit), that should put GS going #1 sometime in mid September to early October.

#1's aren't as easy to come by at this point and it would really irk me if we had a song that was going #1, but was blocked by a multi week #1.
If he continues to gain 300 spins a day, or triple digits, post this week, he would likely peak way before GS IMO. I have GS peaking in 11-12 weeks or so. But I really think combs won’t be a problem. I’ll admit, it gives me anxiety and I think there’s a slight chance, but I don’t see it likely. GS could peak the week before LC, which I see as likely, or could even wait it out like Morgan wallen is doing which I think is the second most likely option. UMG won’t let this get blocked. The only songs they seem to get blocked are songs that aren’t hits and didn’t truly deserve a #1. GS is a true and legitimate hit. Rhett’s song that got blocked wasn’t, therefor the block. But then Wallen’s song is a legitimate hit and it’s not getting blocked^ That's true. I just have been seeing him have +300 spin increases the past few days in a row. He will lose about 1600 of his spins on his 7th day update, but with how he's gaining he will gain those back quickily. I know radio sent his last lead single to #1 right at 3 months on the dot (actually a few days shy of it.) And if the same is done for this one, which it's looking like it, it's going to be nearing getting close to the top around when I have GS getting to the top.
