Luke Combs has one of the biggest country music success stories in the past decade, but don’t worry, the superstar hasn’t forgotten who helped him rise to the top.
Combs recently received his three 2020 Billboard Music Awards trophies for his wins in the Top Country Artist, Top Country Album and Top Country Male Artist categories and showed off his new hardware on Instagram.
“Still can’t believe it when stuff like this shows up at the house,” he wrote. “3 @billboard awards!”
He went on to take the time to thank his fans for their unwavering support throughout his career so far.
“None of this is possible without y’all, the fans,” he shared. “Thank you for loving the songs me and my buddies write. Thank you for spending your hard earned money to come to shows and buy t-shirts. We owe everything to you. Thank you to my wife, my family, my friends and my kick ass team for putting up with me and believing in me. Now it’s time for shows and LC3. See y’all on stage.”

LC3 is in reference to his forthcoming, yet-to-be announced third studio album, which will serve as the follow-up to the record-breaking What You See Is What You Get and the deluxe edition, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get. Combs recently made history with his sixth consecutive N0.1 from his deluxe album, tying the record for most No. 1 singles to come from the same album.
He currently has 11 consecutive No.1 singles at country radio and his latest release, “Cold As You,” is destined to follow that same chart trajectory.
“‘Cold As You,’ I wrote this song with two of the same guys that I wrote ‘Beer Never Broke My Heart’ with, I think it’s very similar,” Combs explains. “The idea was actually Shane Minor’s idea, and he’s a really awesome guy and was willing to let me and Jonathan [Singleton] and Randy [Montana] kind of take the little bit of a start that he had and run with it. And I’m super pumped to have another kickass song with two of my favorite guys and one of my new buddies in Shane Minor.”
On the heels of the release of “Cold As You” to country radio, Combs is making the festival rounds before launching his massive headlining tour this September. The new tour will feature an all-new in-the-round stage design, giving fans a brand new experience.
Kicking off in September at Raleigh’s PNC Arena (two nights), the tour includes stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden (two nights), San Francisco’s Chase Center, Houston’s Toyota Center, Chicago’s United Center (two nights), Dallas’ American Airlines Center (two nights) and Boston’s TD Garden (two nights) among several others. Combs will also perform his first ever headline stadium show at Boone, NC’s Kidd Brewer Stadium on September 4.
