It was just a week ago that Carrie Underwood called Luke Combs to tell him he won the Academy of Country Music Award for Best New Male Artist. The show airs on Sunday live on CBS.
Luke recently recapped the exciting moment. He says, “Yeah, so I’m sitting on the bus making a toaster scrambler, actually everybody thought it was a toaster strudel, it was actually a toaster scrambler there is a difference- look it up. And, I get this call from Carrie Underwood of all people. I don’t know if that was maybe the first time that we have ever interacted in any way shape or form, so it was quite flabbergasting to say the least.”
He continued, “And I wasn’t exactly dressed for the occasion. Obviously, we’re on the phone but I felt like you kinda like have to be a little dressed up if you’re on the phone with Carrie Underwood, she’s very classy. And yeah, so I was like absolutely stunned she told me I won an ACM award for Best New Male Artist and I was like, “Well, this is a neat start to the day. Not only do I get a delicious toaster scrambler but I’ve got an ACM award.’ That’s awesome.”
At the time, Combs posted this to his Instagram, “Got some pretty awesome news yesterday while I was making my toaster strudel… Thanks for the call, @carrieunderwood! This is a dream come true and I’m so thankful for all of you. Can’t wait for the @acmawards! #ACMawards.”
Luke will be performing on the ACM Awards, which will be hosted by Reba McEntire.
