It might not feel like it right now, but we’ll eventually get to see another a concert someday… hopefully sooner rather than later. And according to Thomas Rhett, when you finally do get the chance… you should go see Luke Combs.
In a new sound bite from his label, Big Machine, Rhett says Luke’s show is absolutely mind-blowing:
“I got to sing with Luke Combs when he played at Bridgestone. Luke Combs’ concert is absolutely mind blowing.
I’ve never seen people sing album cuts louder than the singles in my entire life, except for a Luke Combs concert. So, I would definitely encourage everybody to go watch him on the road.”
Which is a bit funny because the last time tours were rolling strong, back in 2019, Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta said Luke Combs only had a “fighting chance” of being a true headliner. In fact, he said Rhett was the only “headliner” under 30 at the time.
“Thomas Rhett is arguably the only headliner in his 20s. Luke Combs will be 28, and he has a fighting chance of being a true headliner. Turning 26 this year will be Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini.
We don’t have one artist under 25 making headlining impact. Huge opportunity. No one’s in their early 20s, not since Taylor. Look what she did for the format. And I think there can be another Dixie Chicks/ShaniaTwain/Taylor moment.”
Even back then it was laughable…
Luke Combs is the undisputed, biggest thing in mainstream country music right now… and even Thomas Rhett knows it. Now, the only thing left to do is hope and pray that live music comes back at some point this year, although according to Fauci, Eric Church and overall temperature of the music industry, it looks like this fall could be the target date.
