Rodgers gifted Combs a belt that reads “No.1 MB [Mediabase] & Billboard Single.” The belt features the song title, their names, and of course, a few beer glasses.
“And the new tag team champs are…Swipe 👉🏼 for a close up of the belt I got for this ole boy,” Rodgers shared on Instagram alongside a snapshot of himself with Combs and a shot of the custom belt.
“Cold Beer Calling My Name,” is featured on Rodgers’ debut album, Bet You’re From a Small Town. The album includes 15 tracks and also features his chart-topping hit, “Some Girls.”
Rodgers was recently named one of the New Faces of Country Music alongside Gabby Barrett, Walker Hayes, Parker McCollum, and Lainey Wilson. The rising stars showcased their talents at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville where Rodgers performed “Cold Beer Calling My Name” (sans Luke Combs) and “Some Girls” as well as “I Don’t Know About You,” a song he co-wrote that Chris Lane took to the top of the charts in 2019.
Rodgers currently has tour dates planned throughout the spring and summer, while Combs has a somewhat light touring schedule as he and his wife, Nicole, are set to welcome their first child in the coming weeks.
