Luke Combs Embraces Scottish Roots & Breaks Out The Kilt During Glasgow Encore

Luke Combs country music Scotland

Immersing himself in the culture…

Luke Combs is nearing the end of his world tour, currently on his European leg. While he is bringing country music across the pond, he is also making sure to pay homage to his own heritage.

Most recently, he sported traditional garb in Scotland during his Glasgow show, honoring his own Scottish roots. For his encore, Combs walked out in a full kilt… but don’t worry, his signature fishing shirt was not replaced.

Combs gave the majority of his set to the crowd in the Glasgow OVO Hydro in his traditional stage apparel…you know the drill, jeans, boots, PFG fishing shirt, Blue Otter hat, and Solo cup. Some might call it the Luke Combs starter pack.

But, when Combs returned to the stage for his encore wearing a kilt, the crowd went NUTS. So much so that one TikTok user commented on a video saying:

“The Hydro roof lifted when he came back out wearing his kilt, best concert ever.”


The video footage from inside the arena seems to support that statement, bringing out an electric side of combs.

During the night’s final song, “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” Combs is running around the stage, spraying what is in his solo cup into the crowd, and closing out the track by getting up on the drum lift, releasing his inner animal.

Fishing shirts plus kilts hit different.

The only question is did he go full old school and rock the kilt commando underneath?

According to the Glasgow Times, Luke actually grew up attending the Highland Games to watch his cousin compete so in order to be prepared for the Glasgow tour stop, reached out to the well-known MacGregor and MacDuff: Kings of Kilts to get himself a proper Scottish kilt. For all you kilt aficionados out there, Combs went with a Fraser tartan (the pattern on the kilt signifies the family you come from) in honor of his mother’s maiden name.

Head of Marketing at MacGregor and MacDuff, Monique McPhie, said:

“We were delighted to help Luke connect with his Scottish heritage during his visit to Glasgow. It has been a joy to work with him over the past few weeks for his specially made kilt and have him visit us in-store for an authentic kilt shop experience.

We are incredibly appreciative that he chose to represent in one of our kilts during the Scottish stop on his world tour.”
