With gritty, grizzled vocals, brazen songwriting talent and a dynamic live show, Luke Combs stormed onto the country music landscape like a “Hurricane” – which is ironically the title of his debut Platinum-certified smash radio single.
Called “one of country’s leading new contenders,” the 27-year-old Asheville, North Carolina native released his critically acclaimed debut album This One’s for You in June. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and remained inside the Top 10 on the same chart since release. Exactly 6 months after the release, Combs’ debut project achieved RIAA-Gold certification.
The album features Combs’ No. 1 single “Hurricane,” which set country radio history topping both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart for two consecutive weeks. The album also includes the No. 1, Gold-certified single, “When It Rains It Pours.” Combs’ third single from the album, “One Number Away,” hits radio airwaves January 8, 2018.
In 2017, Combs earned nominations for CMT Awards Breakthrough Artist of the Year, CMA Award New Artist of the Year and MusicRow Breakthrough Artist/Writer of the Year.
The breakthrough star has performed on NBC’s Today and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and received critical praise from NPR, American Songwriter, Washington Post, Billboard and more. He has also shared the stage with Brantley Gilbert and joined star-packed summer festival line-ups at CMA Music Fest, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, and Windy City Smokeout. Combs is currently on his sold-out, cross-country Don’t Tempt Me with a Good Time Tour
