Sunday • June 10 • 9:30pm • Coca Cola Stage

With gritty, grizzled vocals, brazen songwriting talent and a dynamic live show, River House Artists/Columbia Nashville’s artist Luke Combs stormed onto the Country music landscape as a force to be reckoned with. The 27 year-old Asheville, North Carolina native released his critically-acclaimed debut album This One’s For You on June 2, 2017 which spawned back to-back No. 1 PLATINUM two-week No. 1 singles “Hurricane” and “When It Rains It Pours.” Heralded by Rolling Stone, Uproxx & Vulture as a ‘Best Country Album Of 2017”, the debut project opened at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and remained inside the Top 10 on the same chart since release. Combs’ debut PLATINUM-certified smash radio single “Hurricane” set Country radio history topping both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart for two consecutive weeks – rendering Combs the first debut country artist to hold a multi-week No.1 since Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” and the first new solo Country male artist to accomplish the feat since Blake Shelton with “Austin” in 2001. Combs made history once more when “When It Rains It Pours”, the PLATINUM-certified second single off his debut project, landed at No. 1 at two-weeks at Country radio; the last debut male to achieve back-to-back chart toppers off a debut album was Sam Hunt. “One Number Away”, the third single from Combs’ widely acclaimed project, is at Country radio now. Combs earned nominations for 2017 CMT Awards Breakthrough Artist Of The Year, 2017 CMA Award New Artist of the Year, 2017 MusicRow Breakthrough Artist/Writer Of the Year and 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist and Country Song Of The Year for “Hurricane”. Combs has performed on NBC’s Today and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and received critical praise from NPR, American Songwriter, Washington Post, Billboard and more. After college at Appalachian State, Combs, a true road warrior, built his avid fan base, developing his trademark through delivering rowdy, hold-nothing-back shows. By 2014 when Combs followed his calling to Nashville, Tennessee, he had an army of fans behind him, three self-released EPs and a set list full of songs that are true, authentic and demonstrate his signature modern throwback sound. In 2017, Combs has shared the stage with Brantley Gilbert on his Devil Don’t Sleep Tour and joined star-packed summer festival line-ups at CMA Music Fest, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Windy City Smokeout. Combs launches the Spring leg of his first-ever headlining Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time Tour February with in 25 cities nationwide.
