What You See Is What You Get is the second studio album by American country music singer Luke Combs, released through River House Artists and Columbia Nashville on November 8, 2019.[2] It includes all five songs previously featured on the 2019 EP The Prequel including the singles "Beer Never Broke My Heart" and "Even Though I'm Leaving" in addition to the track "1, 2 Many", a collaboration with Brooks & Dunn. Combs will tour North America throughout the remainder of 2019 and will headline the C2C: Country to Country festival in Europe in 2020 in promotion of the album.[3][4]

Background[edit]

Combs said his intention with new track "1, 2 Many" was to "write a song that I felt like my '90s country music heroes would be proud of". It marks his second collaboration with Brooks & Dunn, with his first being a cover of their debut single "Brand New Man" on their album Reboot.[5]

What You See Is What You Get debuted atop the US Billboard 200 on the chart dated November 23, 2019, earning 172,000 album-equivalent units, including 109,000 pure album sales. In addition to becoming Combs' first US number-one album, it opened with the "largest week for a country album" since 2018, and became the biggest week in terms of streams for a country album on record.[6] It has sold 127,800 copies in the United States as of November 2019.[7]
