Combs has had a pretty incredible year! It’s been ‘Luke Combs Radio’ and he recently performed during half-time at the Carolina Panthers game.
“It’s been really awesome and really overwhelming. It’s crazy. I would’ve never expected it. I couldn’t even get a show at City Limits four years ago. Now, I’m doing a bunch of sold out shows there. It’s crazy. Carolina has been real good to me. It was years of Ramen Noodles in Boone to get to this point.”
What does CMA Week look like for Combs?
“CMA Week is busy for me this week. I had rehearsals last night for my performance. I have another rehearsal today after this. I gotta get a haircut, get the truck detailed and washed. It’s gonna be a lot. It’s my first time being nominated for more than one. I haven’t won an award, so if that were to happen, that’s a whole other thing. I’ve got about four outfit changes throughout the course of the show. I might as well be hosting with as much as I’m changing”
What if you win? Do you have a speech ready?
“I haven’t gotten a speech ready. I think writing a speech is thinking that I’m going to win. I don’t think I’ll ever think that I’m going to win unless they announce my name. I just want to go up there, it’ll be a cool moment if it happens. Obviously my parents will be there, so that would be a big moment for them if I win… and my girlfriend and my team. My team has worked tirelessly for the last two years to get us to this point – to be nominated and to get a performance on the show is just what we were trying to do. So, we’ve already won in my opinion. If it doens’t work out, it’s totally fine and we have a sold out tour to look forward to next year.”
What are your Thanksgiving plans?
“I’m moving into a house on Sunday of this week. Then we’re hosting Thanksgiving which is four days later.”
Have you done anything to help get ready for Thanksgiving?
“I’m going to make sure there’s beds and a couch and heat and a house to be in. I’ve done my part, it’ll be good.”
Will you be cooking or is mom cooking?
“It’ll be me and my girlfriend and each of our parents. I think the dads are cooking.”
