Country singer/songwriter Luke Combs joins Firestone for their 2017 summer Country music campaign focused on bringing to life the long-lasting tie between Country music and the outdoors in an innovative digital content series. Today, Combs joins Firestone in rolling out the first episode of “Luke Combs: Behind The Song”, an inside look at the North Carolina native’s life on and off the road. On the heels of announcing his fall headlining Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time Tour last week, Combs offers fans a behind-the-tour look at the dedication and vision for his trademark full-throttle live shows in the first installment of the three-part digital series.
Breakthrough Country artist, Luke Combs rise has been heralded as “one of the genre’s most compelling stories this year” (American Songwriter). Combs’ critically-acclaimed debut album This One’s For You, the largest debut Country album of 2017, is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and upon release in June, debuted at No. 1 on the same chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Combs’ rapidly-rising new single “When It Rains It Pours” crossed to No. 19 at Country radio this week and earned more than 1 million views on the song’s official music video in 48 hours upon release last week. Earlier this year, Combs made country radio history when his debut single “Hurricane” held the No. 1 spot for two consecutive weeks – a first for a new male solo artist since Blake Shelton accomplished the fete in 2001 with “Austin.” Last week, Combs announced his headlining Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time Tour and saw immediate sell-outs in nearly all markets as soon as tickets were available on Friday. In 2017, Combs has been nominated for CMT “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year”, MusicRow “Breakthrough Artist-Writer” and earned “One To Watch” recognition from Amazon Music, CMT, iHeart Radio’s Bobby Bones, Pandora and more.
