Publisher Told Luke Combs His Songs “Weren’t Good Enough” – They All Went #1

Words of wisdom from Luke Combs.

It’s pretty hard to believe now, but when Luke Combs first arrived in Nashville, they didn’t exactly roll out the red carpet for him. In fact, one of his first meetings with a Nashville publisher was pretty damn discouraging.

“When I was just getting started, I had one of my first meetings in Nashville… only to be told the songs I shared that day weren’t good enough. They all went No. 1.”

And just a few years later, he’s the biggest thing in country music. And the funny thing is that Luke would probably have even more number ones if the singles he released didn’t stay at the top of the charts for weeks on end.

“Moral of the story, don’t ever let anyone stop you from chasing your dreams.”
