Luke Combs has come a LONG way over his short career.
I remember when he first hit it big with “Hurricane” back in 2016, and it didn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that this man had a big voice that was pure country at its core, and he was destined for success.
But I don’t know if we could’ve predicted that he would go on to notch 10 straight #1 singles after that, about to land the 12th of his career with “Cold As You.” I mean, the dude is batting 1.000 in #1 singles.
Now, in the man is selling out huge arenas, winning tons of awards, headlining festivals, playing football stadiums, and has become one of the best personalities in all of the genre.
When you reach fame and fortune so quickly, it’s easy to forget your roots, and focus on everything that’s ahead.
However, that’s not Luke Combs.
He posted on Instagram a recording of what sounds like a radio interview, looking back on his humble beginnings that started in Asheville, North Carolina:
“It’s been awesome to have gotten to do all the venues. Ya know, to go from playing the little chicken wing restaurant in Asheville, the Wild Wing Cafe, to selling out PNC in Charlotte, where I used to go see concerts when I was a kid.
You know, having 20,000 people buy tickets for that is just insane to me. It’s like absolutely mind blowing stuff.
It’s been awesome. Ya know there are things that I love about each setting and there’s stuff that I love about amphitheaters and there’s stuff that I don’t. There’s stuff that I love about playing a 200 seat club, and there’s stuff that I don’t.
Ya know, but I love it all the same. I would have as much fun if I was in either one because I’d be doing what I love anyways. I would be doing the same things in some capacity, whether I was known, or a complete nobody. I would be doing it either way.
It’s just been awesome to have gotten to do all these things and to have accomplished all those goals over the course of 2.5-3 years, and do it with people that you love doing it with.”
Well said Luke, well said.
A humble man of the people… how can you not love this guy?
