The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing many couples to put the brakes on their wedding plans, however, Luke Combs recently revealed that he and Nicole Hocking’s wedding is still “on track,” for now at least.

In an interview with ET Canada, the superstar was pressed to answer a few questions about his upcoming nuptials, but overall remained pretty tight-lipped about the occasion.

When asked if they had to change the original date due to the current circumstances, Combs shared that the wedding date was “fine as of right now.”

“Things are still on track as of right now,” he continued, adding, ‘That’s all I know as far as that stuff goes, we’re still planning on doing it, we’re still picking out napkins and stuff like that, so all that stuff is all systems go as of right now.”

When the interviewer asked how he’s contributing to the wedding planning, he admitted he’s letting Nicole do most of the “heavy lifting.”

“I’m like the booze guy for sure,” he laughed. “Probably gonna dabble in some playlists, I am sure that will probably happen. I’m just the good time engineer. That’s the official title I would give myself.”

Clearly not wanting to give away too many details about their big day, Combs remained coy when asked about seating plans.

“Maybe there is, maybe there isn’t formal seating, who knows,” he said. “There’s no way to know. Maybe it’s a come as you are kind of thing.”

Combs previously opened up about the wedding late last year, revealing that they had in fact set a wedding date for 2020. In February, his soon-to-be bride shared her excitement over picking out her wedding dress after taking a trip to New York City.

“I said “Yaaaasss” to the dress,” she excitedly wrote on Twitter.

Combs and Hocking got engaged in the fall of 2018 prior to vacationing together in Hawaii. The revealed the news to fans a few weeks later on Instagram.
