If there’s anybody in country music today who’s carrying on the ’90s country sound, it’s Luke Combs. And on the first night of CMA Fest, Luke paid tribute to a ’90s country legend during his headlining performance at Nissan Stadium.
Luke surprised the crowd with an appearance by Vince Gill, and the two then broke out into an incredible performance of Vince’s #1 single from 1993, “One More Last Chance.”
While introducing Vince, Luke told the crowd:
“I have never been as excited as I have right now in my entire career to bring out my absolute hero, absolute legend, on the guitar, on the vocals, singin’ one of his incredible songs, Mr. Vince Gill.”
Luke has actually told the story before about his first concert being a Vince Gill show that he snuck into. And ahead of the performance, Vince spoke with The Tennessean about performing with Luke, who he calls a “sweet kid,” joking that Luke still owes him $40 for the concert he snuck into.
