Fans of Luke Combs will be delighted to hear the news that after a series of cryptic messages, Combs has officially announced that his highly anticipated sophomore album is set for release on November 8th.
Fans first began speculation just last week when Combs took to social media to post a countdown with two simple words “1 Week.”. Followers immediately took to Twitter to tweet their guesses, assuming that the messages could mean either new music or more tour dates. However, upon closer look at Combs’ social activity, even more clues could soon be found. As the days led up to the week-long countdown, Combs began to release mini-episodes on YouTube of outtakes from making the video of his latest single “Beer Never Broke My Heart”. In the very beginning of each episode, a countdown begins. In episode 2, the number 11 flashes at the end of the countdown and in episode 3, the number 11 then 8 flashes, a major clue to the November 8th release date!
Combs’ announcement comes on the heels of quite the upward spiral of success. Recently, the 29-year-old singer-songwriter became the Grand Ole Opry’s newest inductee, a monumental feat for any artist in the country music world. His fall tour is already sold out in major cities and his latest single officially became his sixth consecutive #1 song. The milestone makes Combs the first country music artist in history to have his first six singles reach the top spot.
Back in 2017, NYCountry Swag caught Combs just before his debut single “Hurricane” would top the charts, naming him one of our 2017 Artists to Watch. Months later, seeing him perform at his first New York City show ever sealed the deal and we knew we were in front of a superstar in the making. Take a look back at that show here.
