Can’t say enough good things about Luke Combs, man.
The dude is just a class act.
Back in July, he brought a teenager with terminal cancer on stage to sing his hit song “Better Together,” he surprised another terminally ill young man with concert tickets and a full backstage experience, and also paid off funeral expenses for the three people who died at the Faster Horses Festival last year.
Humble, generous, compassionate… the man is just a good dude.
Last night, Luke kicked off his Middle Of Somewhere Tour in Bangor, Maine, at the Maine Savings Amphitheater, and right before a performance of “Does To Me,” he spotted a sign.
The sign read:
“We made $100 bucks stacking 5 cords of wood, bought two Luke Combs tickets… man, he sounds good. Our dads swore it was a waste of time but they were wrong.
Today’s my 12th birthday, oh Lord when it rains it pours.”
And if you’re not familiar with a cord of wood, it’s a lot. We’re talking at least a 4 foot by 8 foot, tightly-packed stack of logs… and these two youngsters piled up five of them so they could make a couple hundred bucks for Luke Combs tickets.
So Luke, being the aforementioned good dude that he is, pulled out his wallet and paid them back.
Although, Luke only had about $140 on him so he signed some stuff and then promised to take the boys backstage after the show, hang out a bit, and pay them back for the rest.
Stay classy Luke.

Luke Combs Fulfills Terminally Ill Fan’s Dream Of Seeing Him In Concert
Look at Luke Combs out here proving he’s the man of the people, once again.
Back in July, he brought a teenager with terminal cancer on stage to sing his hit song “Better Together,” he once surprised fellow country singer Ashley McBryde with a custom bar cart as an end of tour gift, and also paid off funeral expenses for the three men who died at the Faster Horses Festival last year.
And of course, the list of examples goes on, and on, and on.
With that being said, Combs is back at it again, as he recently fulfilled 22-year-old Dalton’s dream to meet the star country singer in person.
Dalton tragically only has 12 months to live, and thanks to the James Bess Foundation, they were able to make the dream become a reality.
The wish was shared in a video through the James Bess Foundation TikTok account, as Dalton responded while laying in his hospital bed:
“To go see Luke Combs in concert.”
He also added that he wanted to take a trip to Dolly Parton’s theme park, Dollywood, in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
The caption to the video read:
“Meet the newest client, Dalton. Dalton is 22 years old, lives in Nashville, is battling congenital heart disease, and has less than 12 months to live.
His wish is a meet and greet with Luke Combs as well as attending his concert with his best friend and his best friend’s dad in Atlanta next month. Here is Dalton’s request video: (Dalton is autistic and was in the hospital when this video was taken).”
Sure enough, Luke commented:
“Dalton, hey buddy, I saw your video… we’re gonna get you out to the Atlanta show.
You and your friends, and I’ll show you around, give you a backstage your myself, get you guys some tickets, anything you need. Make sure your hotels and travel expenses are taken care of.
Also, gonna figure out how to make this Dollywood trip happen for you and your family. So, look forward to seeing you there buddy and we’ll see you soon.
At Combs’ show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on July 30th, Dalton’s dream was fulfilled.
He took some time out from his concert to give Dalton a tour of the venue/stage, and also gave them some merchandise as well. He also hooked Dalton up with a signed guitar as well.
In a clip of Dalton hanging out backstage, he admitted that he’d never been to a real concert, and was looking forward to hearing songs like “Lovin’ On You,” “Better Together,” and “When It Rains It Pours.”
The caption read:
“The amazing Luke Combs and team fulfilled Dalton’s dream of meeting him and attending his Atlanta concert on Saturday, July 30, 2022!
Check out this pic and video collage of Dalton’s amazing night! Huge thanks to Luke and his entire team for rolling out the red carpet for Dalton, we are all very grateful.
Next up, Dollywood this October!”
Stay classy, Luke.
