Luke Albert Combs (born March 2, 1990) is an American country music singer and songwriter. Combs has released one album for Columbia Records Nashville, which has produced four singles: "Hurricane", "When It Rains It Pours", "One Number Away", and "She Got the Best of Me", all four of which have reached the number one position on Country Airplay.

Background

Combs was born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina.[3] He has been performing as a vocalist since his childhood. While attending A.C. Reynolds High School, Combs played football and performed with multiple vocal groups, including performing a solo in the world-renowned Carnegie Hall. Later, he attended Appalachian State University where he played his first country music show at the Parthenon Cafe. With less than a month left of his fourth year of college, he dropped out to pursue his country music career. He later moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music.[4]

Music

Combs released his first EP, The Way She Rides, in February 2014. Later that year, he released his second EP, Can I Get an Outlaw.[5][2] In 2015, Combs' first single, "Hurricane", sold 15,000 copies in the first week,[6] and debuted at No. 46 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.[7] In November 2015, Combs released his third EP, This One's for You. In June 2017, Combs released his major label debut album, also titled This One's For You on Columbia Nashville and River House Artists.[2]

Combs signed a deal with Sony Music Nashville, and the debut single from This One's For You, "Hurricane" was re-released on Columbia Nashville.[6] "Hurricane," reached No. 1 on the Country Radio airplay charts on May 15, 2017 - holding that spot for 2 weeks.[8] The album reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart[9] and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums[10] in its first week. The album's second single, "When It Rains It Pours" released to country radio on June 19, 2017.[11] It reached at number one on the Country Airplay in October 2017. The album's third single, "One Number Away" released to country radio on January 8, 2018. In mid-2018, Combs re-released This One's for You with several bonus tracks, both of which ("She Got the Best of Me" and "Beautiful Crazy") were also issued as singles.

In early 2017, the singer/songwriter was named one of Sounds Like Nashville's "Artists to Watch".[12]

Personal life

In early 2016, Combs started dating Nicole Hocking, and the two got engaged in November 2018.[13][14]
