Luke Combs Wows Joe Rogan With Insane Shotgun Speed During Podcast: “I Don’t Even Know How You Did That”

Luke Combs is the undisputed shotgunning champ.

And if you’ve never seen him do it before, let me tell you, it is truly a sight to behold. I have never in my life seen someone shotgun a beer as fast as he does, and it’s not even close. At all.

It’s become a staple during his concerts, too, and he explained during a recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast that he got tons of practice in during his college years, adding how funny it is now when fans at his shows freak out over seeing him do it live:

“I can’t tell you how many beers I shotgunned in college, and now I can shotgun a beer and like 50, 60 thousand people are stoked about it.

I’m like, that’s awesome, dude. I did seven or eight of these a night for years, you know, years…

You went to the bathroom and I was talkin’ about it, that’s what got me thinking about shotguns. I might do one… I might just do one straight out of the can.”

He decides to shotgun one right there in-studio, and Joe seems a bit shocked to see Luke poke holes in the can with his teeth, as opposed to using a knife, which Luke calls “an art form”:

“I always start it that way, right, I feel like that’s for good effect, you know? I got two teeth through that bad boy… it’s an art form. This is not a speed thing.”

Joe adds that using a funnel seems to be a more potent strategy, as it all goes “straight to the brain,” and Luke responds by challenging him to see if he can do it faster than Joe without one.

And spoiler alert: he can. By a pretty decent margin… check it out:

Joe and his producer Jamie are both shocked and impressed with the speed that Luke completes his beer in, with Joe saying:

“You beat me by a solid three seconds. You beat me by a Tesla 0 to 60.

I don’t even know how you did that… you just opened it up and it went down.”

Luke downplays it, though, adding he feels like he’s back in college:

“It’s like college. Feels like college.”

I’m with Joe here… it never becomes less impressive no matter how many times I’ve seen it.

Seems like they might need to have a rematch in downtown Nashville once Luke’s new bar is finally open, too:

And of course, during the three-plus hour podcast, they got into a ton of different topics, like when Luke first moved to Nashville, Chris Stapleton’s Super Bowl performance, Colter Wall, how he missed out on the buck of a lifetime, his lifelong struggle with his weight, and much more.

The entire podcast streams exclusively on Spotify.
