Luke Combs and Nicole Hocking have quickly become one of country music’s favorite couples. Here, we look back on their love story. 

The two were introduced by mutual friends in May of 2016 at the Key West Songwriters Festival. Luckily, Luke and Nicole both lived in Nashville, so they were able to reconnect once they returned home when Luke invited Nicole to dinner. By September of that year, the couple had made their relationship official.

“I didn’t have anything going on when we met,” the superstar recalled during an appearance on Couple Things with Shawn Johnson and Andrew East. “I didn’t have a record deal, or a publishing deal, anything.”

Their relationship flourished and Luke eventually popped the question in November of 2018. Even though his proposal didn’t go exactly as planned, everything worked out for the best.
