Luke Combs’ Nashville success has been rapid; in just a few years, he’s topped the charts seven times.
When Luke first came to Nashville, he made several friends who turned out to be amazing songwriters. He told us, “I’ve always gotten to write songs with my friends. A lot of it is people I met when I first moved here and none of us had publishing deals, none of us had managers or anything, we were just kids that hung out at the Tin Roof on Demonbreun every Tuesday night. Wherever there was a writer’s night every night of the week, that’s what we did. We met each other there, we booked our first co-writes with each other there, and I think that relationship makes it so easy to want to constantly be writing songs because now I don’t have the opportunity to hang out with the people that I enjoy hanging out with as much as I used to.”
Combs added, “I think when you can have a genuine friendship with somebody… and I’ve got probably ten co-writers that I feel like I would probably take a bullet for tomorrow, that are just genuinely good friends of mine. So being able to write a song with them, and at the same time hang out with some of your best friends, I don’t think I’ll ever stop and say I have enough cause it’s just fun to write with those people. It feels like we’re doing something that’s really special. I don’t think you can ever have too many songs, it’s like having too much gas in your gas tank.”
