About Luke Combs
Combs began his career in the 2010s and gained national recognition with his number-one hit singles “Hurricane” and “When It Rains It Pours”. Luke Combs is famous for his acclaimed country music recordings. He was born on March 2, 1990, in Huntersville, North Carolina. He’s the only child for Chester and Rhonda Combs. His family moved to Asheville, North Carolina when he was just eight years old. Since his childhood, he has been performing as a vocalist. He attended the local AC Reynolds High School.
During his time in high school, he played football and volleyball and performed with many vocal groups. One of his most notable performance was with the world-renowned Carnegie Hall. Following his high school graduation in 2008, he enrolled at the Appalachian State University. During this time, he worked as a bouncer at a local bar and had his first performance on a country music show, that took place at the Parthenon Cafe.
Luke dropped out of university in his senior year and decided to pursue a career in country music. In the early 2010s, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and began working with various producers and recording studios. His very first music project is the extended play, The Way She Rides, which he self-released in February 2014.
Consistently releasing music and singing a multi year recording deal worth millions of dollars with Columbia Nashville is how this country singer became a millionaire. After the release of his first EP, in late-2014, he released his second, Can I Get an Outlaw. He then spent the entire 2015 working on singles that would be included in his debut studio album. The first single that Combs released was “Hurricane” from October 2016. It sold more than 15,000 copies in its first week and helped the recording artist achieve a lot of attention. In early 2017, he signed a multi-year deal, estimated to be worth $2 million, with Sony Music Nashville.
Instantly after that, he released his debut single, “This One Is For You”, followed by his major label debut album This One’s For You. The debut album topped the US Billboard “Top Country Charts” and entered charts in six countries overall – Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Scotland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
From the advertisements, sales and promotions of his first album, it went 4x Platinum. To further promote his recordings, he embarked on his first tour titled Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time. He also toured as a supporting act of established names in the country music world, Brantley Gilbert, Jason Aldean, and Tim McGraw.
Creating songs for and with best-selling artists such as Jameson Rodgers, Brooks & Dunn, and Eric Church, as well as touring the world and releasing a second commercially-acclaimed studio album are just some of the many reasons why Luke Combs has been so successful. Throughout 2018 and 2019, he continued to create new music with and for many other country singers.
In June 2019, he released his fourth extended play, and by far his most successful, The Prequel. Four months later, in November, his sophomore studio album titled What You See Is What You Get was released.
Ever since 2017 when he broke through and signed with Sony Music Nashville, Luke Combs has been one of the hottest names in country music. He has received numerous awards and nominations such as CMT, Academy of Country Music, iHeart Radio Music, Billboard Music, and American Music Awards.
He also received his first two Grammy nominations in the categories “Best New Artist” and ”Best Country Group/Duo Performance”, however, he failed to win both of them. Outside of music, for the past three years or so, the country singer has been appearing regularly on various film and television projects.
