Emerging Artist

Country singer Luke Combs started showing promising activity last winter, soon after the release of his This One’s for You He Debuted on our Emerging Artists chart at #15 last week (9/8) and now moves up a spot to #14.

The single, Hurricane, is in rotation at over 30 Country radio stations, including leading support in Chicago, Orlando, Kansas City, Columbus, and his hometown of Asheville, NC. The video has just crested 1.5 million YouTube plays in the U.S. and his social following has grown well into six figures.

Luke and his band are currently touring their butts off into the fall, including dates with Corey Smith, up-and-comers Muscadine Bloodline, and a slot supporting Travis Tritt on 9/15.
