The Origin Story

Combs was born in Huntersville, North Carolina, on March 2nd, 1990.

Combs was interested in music from a young age.

As a child, he was involved in several school musicals and was involved in choirs both at church and in school.

He once went with his church choir to Carnegie Hall, where they performed several hymns.

Combs was a student at Appalachian State University.

During his time at college, he worked part-time as a bouncer at a local bar.

He then began to sing at the same bar, and soon developed a taste for it.

Rather than finish his degree, Combs dropped out with a mere 21 hours left on his degree in order to pursue a career in country music.

Luke said in 2020 that he hated school: ”Nothing about me wanted to go to math or science, you know what I mean? I was just more concerned with drinking and playing rugby and singing.”

Combs’ first EP – The Way She Rides – was released in 2014.

His second, Can I Get an Outlaw, was released later the same year.

Combs did not hit the big time until 2016, however, with the release of his first single.

The single, Hurricane, instantly proved a smash hit among country enthusiasts, with 15,000 copies sold in the first week after release. Hurricane hit #1 on the country music radio airplay chart shortly after release, and stayed there for two weeks.

In the summer of 2017, Combs released his debut album, This One’s For You. It rapidly hit #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 – a remarkable achievement for a country album – and was #1 on Billboard’s ‘Top Country Albums’ chart.

Everything right now has taken off in the right direction a little bit faster than I expected,” Combs told Blue Ridge Now in 2016. He added: “That’s fine with me. I want to be able to sit back and take it in, but it’s just on to the next thing tomorrow. It’s a great problem to have.” 

In 2018, the singer/songwriter embarked on his first-ever headlining arena tour, where many dates have sold out in advance. The tour ran from January 31, 2018, through May 12, 2018, with Jameson Rodgers and LANCO billed as support.

Combs released his second album, What You See Is What You Get, in November 2019.

Five of the songs from the album hit #1 on the Billboard Country Chart, and one of his singles featured a duet with the renowned singer Eric Church.

Combs’ third studio album, Growin’ Up, was released in March 2022. Combs released three singles from the album, one of which – The Kind of Love We Make – hit #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Combs’ fourth album, entitled Getting’ Old, was released in March 2023. The biggest hit from the album to date is Combs’ cover of Tracy Chapman’s hit song Fast Cars. At the time of writing, it had been streamed on Spotify 65 million times.
