When Luke sat down on this stool in Evans, Georgia, do you think he knew he he’d be the biggest thing in country music six years later?
Probably not, huh?
“Can I Get An Outlaw” was the first song that hooked me on Luke Combs, while I don’t remember specifically when it happened, it might’ve have even been this performance.

The emergence of artists like Tyler Childers and Cody Jinks have given us some hope for the state of country music, and with artists like Luke himself, Jon Pardi, and Ashley McBryde, we’re even seeing the pendulum swing back towards traditional country music in the mainstream.
