Luke Combs is a busy man these days. Not only is the superstar preparing to release his sophomore album on November 9, he’s also in the midst of a massive tour, prepping for a 2020 tour and planning a wedding with fiancée Nicole Hocking.

Overall, the couple has remained mostly quiet about their upcoming nuptials, however, Combs did spill a few details about the impending wedding in a recent interview with People.

“I’ll give you a hint,” he teased with the publication. “It’s one of the days next year. One out of 365.”

When the reporter reminded him that 2020 was a leap year, he quipped, “Three hundred and sixty-six! The odds are down.”

The North Carolina native didn’t divulge too many additional details regarding the wedding, but shared that they are working with a wedding planner and said that they are “actually a lot farther along than I think we both thought we would be with our schedules.”

Combs and Hocking got engaged in the fall of 2018 prior to vacationing together in Hawaii. They waited a bit to share the news with fans though.

“She said yes a while ago but this is a much better place to take pictures than the kitchen,” Combs wrote on Instagram. “Can’t wait to spend forever with you! I love you!”

As for the wedding, Combs told People he’s “excited” for the big day and that he’s “looking forward to that day quite a bit.”
