Hurricane - Luke Combs
We continue our look at the visiting stars of C2C 2018 with our next LCM featured artist Luke Combs. We think Luke will have the same amazing impact that Drake White did this year. Our LCM #TrackOfThe Day is his huge smash hit 'Hurricane' taken from his debut album 'This One's For You' released in June this year.
With gritty, grizzled vocals, brazen songwriting talent and one hell of a live show, River House Artists/Columbia Nashville’s Luke Combs stormed onto country music landscape as a force to be reckoned with. Named a 2017 Artist To Watch by Amazon Music, Billboard, Bobby Bones, CMT, Huffington Post, Nashville Lifestyles, Pandora & Rolling Stone, the 27 year-old Asheville, North Carolina native released his debut This One’s For You, on June and opened with 43,000 total activity in sales & consumption, making it the largest album debut from a new country artist in 2017. Heralded as a dynamic debut album (Entertainment Weekly) and "one of the most anticipated albums of the year" (Rolling Stone), This One’s For You debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Combs’ debut smash PLATINUM-certified radio single "Hurricane" has quickly become a staple anthem for country fans, amassing over 100 million streams and reaching No. 1 on SiriusXM’s The Highway.
Combs second single to Country radio, "When It Rains It Pours", is hitting radio airwaves now. After attending Appalachian State, Combs, a true road warrior, built his avid fan base, delivering over 250 rowdy, hold-nothing-back shows per year. By the time 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 platform his signature modern throwback sound.
Combs joins Brantley Gilbert on his cross-country Devil Don’t Sleep Tour until September 2017 and takes the stage at the nation’s largest summer festivals including Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Stagecoach and Tortuga.
