Luke Combs was born and raised in North Carolina. He was named after his grandfather who was a well-loved veterinarian. Born as Luke Vincent Combs, he spent much of his early life living with his grandparents and other members of his immediate family.
Luke Combs was described as “a shy, bookish kid who liked to play classical guitar,” according to biographer Don Marquis. He was the middle child of five children and the oldest of four boys who also grew up attending church. He was the only son of a prominent dentist who later moved to California. According to writer Jack Canfield,” Luke Combs had a passion for music and pursued it in the way most typical middle-class kids do. He was a very private person, who declined the opportunity to have his picture taken by the paparazzi.”

According to Don Marquis, “He attended summer camp, but it proved to be nothing more than a paltry experience for him. When he got home, he resolved to find a way to channel his energy.” That’s exactly what he did, by joining the ranks of the Asheville Symphony in his thirty-first year of age.
Combs’s musical interests included country music, which he picked up on the acoustic guitar when he was just sixteen years old. He also found it refreshing that he didn’t have to follow a career path like that of country stars like Elvis Presley. Instead, he pursued a musical career that would see him traveling the country and writing several popular songs.
Luke Combs finally broke through with his first major music career when he was thirty years old. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music, Best Original Song, Best Score (John Corigliano & James Newton Song), Best Music Non-Aerosmith Appreciation Album, and Best Music Visual (John Corigliano – featuring the cast of Saturday Night Fever). His second album, Blowin’ In The Wind, was released in June of 2021. As he said during an interview with DJ Drama, he is currently working on a new album.
Luke Combs is a versatile singer/songwriter who has released several albums. His music has always been rooted in the blues but he now brings that same style of bluesy soul to the music he sings about. He has also gained notoriety as one of the best country guitarists of his generation. He has released several singles and albums that have been certified platinum by the BBK and ASCAP. He has made several guest appearances on television shows such as Oprah and The Late Show. His song, “Mystery Train”, was recently released as a single on The New Adventures of American Music.
