Luke Combs — American country singer and songwriter
Luke Combs was born on 2 March 1990 in Asheville, North Carolina. Luke started performing on stage when he was still a child. When Combs was in high school, he worked with several bands. He even got a chance to perform at Carnegie Hall. Later, he enrolled at Appalachian State University but kept thinking about a music career. Eventually, he dropped out and moved to Nashville.
At the beginning of 2014, Combs presented his first EP, The Way She Rides, which he recorded independently. Half a year later, he released the second EP, Can I Get an Outlaw. However, neither of them were successful.
The real fame came to the artist in July 2015, when he released his single "Hurricane" on iTunes. It was an overnight breakthrough in Luke’s career. The song made it to the 46th spot of Billboard Hot Country Songs and sold over 15 thousand copies. Combs was finally noticed by recording companies and signed contracts with Columbia Nashville and River House Artists.
In November 2015, he released his first official EP, This One's for You. The album conquered the charts. It reached the 24th position on Billboard Top Country Albums and entered Billboard 200. Even though it reached only the 150th spot, the result was great for the artist. Many organizers and fans tried to book Luke Combs for their events.
