Luke Combs – Nashville’s New Everyman Hero

While growing up in small town east Georgia, Ray learned the values of the simple life, what it means to earn a buck, and how a country song means more than honky tonkin’ and sad songs, it’s about a way of life.

Luke Combs – Rising Country Star Luke Combs Returns To Des Moines This Fall

Luke CombsLuke Combs continues to tease music from his upcoming album What You See Is What You Get Combs performed the new song “Dear Today” at Los Angeles’ All for the Hall Concert on Sept. Other highlights included Hurricane,” One Number Away,” Beer Can” and Houston We’ve Got a Problem.” We won’t try to say Combs’ brand of country is traditional, but it’s about as close as we get these days. And that’s another thing – along with his songwriting talent – that just may get him to the top of the country music world and keep him there for a while.

In October 2016, Combs signed for Columbia Records Nashville. His first studio album This One’s For You was released in June 2017 and reached #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Country Albums Chart and #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums. This album was re-released with additional unreleased tracks in 2018.Luke Combs

While the raucous blue-collar anthems ring true, Combs rounds out the album with feel good nostalgia on That’s What Memories Are Made Of” and tugs the toughest of heartstrings with the clever word play in I Got A Way With You.” Combs co-wrote every track on the full-length debut.

Our family of 4 attended the concert, two middle-aged parents and two teenage boys. My husband and I have been to numerous concerts and both felt this was one of the best shows we’ve seen in a very long time! Full of energy and great music – and above all else, the sound was crisp and clear, which we have NEVER had at a concert in Rogers Place since it opened!!!! Our sons have been to a handful of concerts and both said this was the best one by far. Unfortunately, we missed the first act, but Morgan Wallen and Luke Combs were both amazing and we’ll all be lifelong fans. Those boys love their fans and know how to rock it out!!! I also must add that I appreciated the reasonable ticket prices. You can’t find entertainment for that price anywhere these days, so kudos on being cognizant of the state of economics in our country right now.

The tour culminates a massive breakthrough year for Combs, which saw the release of his platinum certified debut album, This One’s For You. This One’s For You is currently the most streamed country album of 2018, achieving over one billion streams and was also the largest album debut from a new country artist in 2017.

Luke Combs performs at the Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville on Friday, Feb. 15, 2019. Combs has already scored six No. 1 songs, with both ballads and barroom anthems — and captured the CMA Award for best new artist in 2018.

These achievements add to an already monumental year for Combs, whose breakthrough debut album This One’s For You is now certified RIAA double Platinum. Since it’s release June 2, 2017, the album has spent a total of 29 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, including 16 weeks in 2018—making it the highest selling country album last year with 1.1 million equivalent album units sold and the only country album to surpass 1 million album units. It’s also the most-streamed country album of 2019 so far. Additionally, Combs was recently named Country Artist of the Year at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, New Artist of the Year at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards, was nominated for Best New Artist at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and was the recipient of a CMA Triple Play Award for writing three #1 songs in a 12 month period.

Luke Combs Tour 2019 ! cLuke Combs feels comfortable around a misfortune song, however at any rate the container’s never disappointed him. So goes the topic of the North Carolina local’s first-consistently featuring field hike, the Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour, set to commence in 2019 with Lanco and Jameson Rodgers supporting. Brushes declared the visit via web-based networking media early today and furthermore saw the keep running with Storme Warren on SiriusXM’s the Highway.

Metz, of course, is no stranger to singing for an audience. In April, she released a video for her song, “I’m Standing With You,” from her film “Breakthrough.” That same month, she made her live singing debut with none other than superstar Carrie Underwood at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Tickets for the Indianapolis show are available at and the Bankers Life Fieldhouse Box Office.

He’s fresh from winning the gong for New Artist of the Year at this year’s CMA Awards in Nashville, where he took the stage to perform hit single ‘She Got The Best Of Me’. He played to jam-packed rooms on his first ever North American headlining tour, supported superstar Jason Aldean earlier this year, and is currently taking his Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour through sold-out venues across the US.

While a Luke Combs concert can always vary in the songs performed, fans may expect to hear his aforementioned hits along with songs like “Beer Never Broke My Heart.” He also performs a variety of cover songs such as the Eagles’ song, “Desperado,” Brooks & Dunn ‘s “Brand New Man” and Hank Williams Jr. ‘s song “All my Rowdy Friends.” A Luke Combs tour may also feature songs from his first EP, The Way She Rides, produced without a major label.

For instance, Combs pointed out that he crafted the ballad Beautiful Crazy” for his now-fiancée before they were even officially dating.” And he didn’t know how she’d react, but if it was anything like the way 16,000 fans at the X — fairly evenly divided between women and men — did, then you know why he won her heart.

A few days ago, Luke Combs flew a private plane to Stagecoach. In a few more days, he’ll release his next top five Hot Country Songs hit, Beer Never Broke My Heart.” And tonight he’ll learn that he has won three Billboard Music Awards. Right now, though, he just wants to show me where he shot a turkey.

Fans have quickly latched onto the album’s title track, This One’s For You,” a tribute to all the people who’ve helped Combs make it to this pivotal point in his life and career.

Don’t call country music newcomer Luke Combs an outlaw. The word doesn’t really fit, though he does have an undeniable independent streak. And outsider doesn’t really work anymore either, since he’s come to Nashville and quickly won himself a record deal and quite a bit of attention.

Clad in a knee-length denim dress, the actress covered Luke Combs’ emotionally charged smash hit Even Though I’m Leaving” at the 2019 CMT Artists of the Year ceremony Wednesday night in Nashville.

Phew! Now that’s how you get people’s attention when announcing the release of your new album. Well played Luke, well played. Fans can rest easy now and get ready for May 8 when Luke will give Beer Never Broke My Heart to the masses.

New for 2020, for the very first time the international series Introducing Nashville will see artists including Abby Anderson, Eric Paslay and Tenille Townes take to the mainstage together for an acoustic set sharing stories behind their tracks. The C2C Spotlight Stage will also be back.

Then, in college at Appalachian State University, he discovered Eric Church , who appealed to the side of Combs that loved classic rock and Metallica , but also to the part of him that connected with working-class America. Combs’ mother was laid off from her job after 20 years due to corporate restructuring, and Church’s understanding of the small-town common man made Combs see the genre in a new light. Those were the kind of lyrics that he wanted to write – the drinking songs and the tales of normal folks and their struggles and imperfect loves.

In a world of surprise album drops and Taylor Swift Easter eggs, Combs realized early that kind of familiarity was a key to his success – and while suspense might make for flashier marketing, he has relied on fan feedback to lead the way. He knew, for instance, that releasing a single and rolling out from there wouldn’t work for him. He made that mistake once, when he dropped an EP out of nowhere and got a lukewarm reaction. Instead, he’ll integrate a song into his live show and post it on YouTube and Instagram stories – even, in the case of Beer Never Broke My Heart,” name a tour after it. By the time Beer” is released, it will have been in his setlist for over a year.

Johnson’s passionate, rowdy concerts have already drawn comparisons to Garth Brooks, and the music from his previous albums – inspired by ‘90s country foundations, but built for the 21st century – has made him a familiar presence on Texas and Oklahoma red-dirt radio.

Combs, whose songwriting ability earned kudos from Emmylou Harris and Sheryl Crow at the All for the Hall event, says he’d like to tackle more personal subject matter in his songs, though he’s just kind of dipping my toes in the water of that stuff” for now. Two of the songs he performed in L.A. — the introspective note-to-self, Dear Today,” and a still-untitled track he wrote about his parents — are expected to be included on the new album. And though the 29-year-old says he won’t be singing songs about having kids” anytime soon, he’s eager to use his music and his platform to bring more people together.

What You See Is What You Get is the follow up to Combs’ breakthrough double Platinum debut, This One’s For You, which has spent 47 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—the longest reign ever for a male artist and second longest for an artist overall following Shania Twain’sCome On Over in 1997 (50 weeks). This One’s For You is also the most-streamed country album of 2019 so far.

See Combs play “Beer Never Broke My Heart” live on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on May 9. Luke Combs performs on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at Wells Fargo Arena.

As big as this year has been for Combs, though, the next several months will only get bigger. Already in the midst of a hot-ticket arena tour, he’ll release his highly anticipated second album, What You See Is What You Get , on Nov. 8. He’s also just announced his first headlining stadium show next May, set for his home state of North Carolina.

Tonight, Combs will play the second-to-last set of the festival, after Morgan Evans and before his pal Hunt. But right now, he and Hocking are reminiscing about the Grammy Awards back in February. Combs was nominated for best new artist ( Dua Lipa won), and they walked the red carpet behind Cardi B Literally no one cared about us being there,” says Combs with a laugh.

If Nashville music business insider Nicole Hocking ever needs a reminder of just how much her fiancé loves her, she can flip on pretty much any country radio station and hear it.

Fans are advised that Select-a-Seat of Lubbock is the only authorized ticket source for this event. United Supermarkets Arena and Select-a-Seat cannot guarantee the authenticity of tickets nor the ability to reprint lost or stolen tickets purchased from unauthorized sources.

For Luke Combs, though, demonstrating current pop fluency and a connection with the sturdy contributions of previous generations of country performers aren’t mutually exclusive propositions. The 27-year-old son of a maintenance worker and a prison human resources staffer in North Carolina didn’t pick up the guitar until college, but he’s quickly emerging as one of country’s leading new contenders. On This One’s For You, a debut album written and recorded before major labels came knocking, the singer and songwriter proves himself to be an astute student of both the genre’s trends and conventions.

The fact that Combs is getting somewhere right now, at a time when even male country stars are held to a gym-toned, groomed and airbrushed standard, is a sign that the success of a burly, bearded singer like Chris Stapleton may have helped create a space for male performers whose appeal isn’t predicated on easily packaged heartthrob potential. Combs projects a lot of other qualities that have been largely missing from the country mainstream of late, like hearty emotionalism (see: his experienced, empathetic bartender offering reassurance to a heartsick day-drinker in “Lonely One”) and earthy, self-deprecating wit.

This combination, which flourished on ballads, made Combs stand apart from both slick country-pop crooners and bro country revelers, a distinction that helped him become a hit right out of the gate. His first single, 2016’s “Hurricane,” launched a series of five number one Billboard Country Airplay hits in a row. “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “She Got the Best of Me,” and “Beautiful Crazy” – all pulled from his 2017 debut album This One’s for You, the latter pair coming from an expanded reissue of the record – arrived over the course of the next two years, a period that saw Combs becoming one of the biggest stars in Nashville, a status cemented by his win of the Country Music Associations’ Best New Artist award in 2018.

Combs has unveiled the first 6-tracks on the new album, as well as track 12 and unveiling the collaboration effort with Eric Church on track 13 in which the name of the song has not yet been released as mentioned above. The album features 17 tracks, including the five tracks that was previously released on Combs’ EP, The Prequel.

It’s Cinco de Mayo in Frisco, Texas, and Combs is in the middle of a fitting for a new pair of jeans. Aboard his white tour bus parked at the Off the Rails Country Music Fest, Hocking sits at her laptop, while JoJo – clearly already at home in the family – lolls on the couch. (The cats, presumably hanging in there, are at home.) Content with his denim, Combs settles down next to a custom record console. Church’s Carolina is playing, and Willie Nelson ‘s Stardust (Probably my favorite album ever”) is on deck.

Once you’ve decided on a date, you’ll be able to sort available Luke Combs tickets by price, quantity, or, when applicable, section or row. Seating arrangements are subject to change for each concert on the Luke Combs tour 2019, depending on the respective host venue. When you see a listing you like, adjust the quantity as needed and select the corresponding Buy” button.

Perhaps Combs’ only misstep of the night was enlisting two underwhelming opening acts, both of whom have written hits for big-name country stars. Luke Combs concert tickets are available for Los Angeles, Nashville and many more. Browse the Vivid Seats inventory for tickets in a city near you.

Combs realizes it’s time to go pick up JoJo, but first, he wants to play me The Prequel on a pair of wireless speakers. He runs through a set of songs that sound like surefire blockbuster hits. They’re radio catnip – melodic, fun, clearly country – but also smart and even a little sentimental. Both commercial and credible, all the way.

Other highlights included Hurricane,” One Number Away,” Beer Can” and Houston We’ve Got a Problem.” We won’t try to say Combs’ brand of country is traditional, but it’s about as close as we get these days. And that’s another thing – along with his songwriting talent – that just may get him to the top of the country music world and keep him there for a while.

In October 2016, Combs signed for Columbia Records Nashville. His first studio album This One’s For You was released in June 2017 and reached #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Country Albums Chart and #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums. This album was re-released with additional unreleased tracks in 2018.

Combs made history as the first artist to simultaneously top all five Billboard country charts for multiple weeks: Top Country Albums, Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales (dated March 9 and March 30).
