On January 26th, 2017 the 930 Club in Washington, DC was full of rowdy country music fans who awaited a certain country music artist that seems to be defying the odds as of lately. Luke Combs went from being a North Carlina native playing songs on Youtube, to being a household name. His career has taken off and I’m not surprised.
Tom O’Conner was first to take the stage with a nicely serenading acoustic set. His style of country and classic rock combined was rather impressive. His vocals were strong with a raspy tone. He performed well.
Muscadine Bloodline, a country duo hailing from Alabama, took the stage next. With strong harmonies and a strong stage presence, their performance was enjoyable. Their set included songs such as “Shut Your Mouth” and ” Crickets and Cane Poles.” If you haven’t heard of these guys, you’re missing out.
Headlining act Luke Combs was nothing short of fire. He took the stage amongst crazy screaming fans as he went into “Can I Get An Outlaw.” He performed like a seasoned artist, his vocals were pristine as he dominated the stage. He performed songs such as “Beer Can” and a newly written song titled “One Number Away.” The Luke Combs experience is authentic and special. He is a truly exceptional artist who believes in writing his own music. He is also musically educated and even performs an array of cover songs during his set. Some of his cover songs include “Tennessee Whiskey” by Chris Stapleton and Bob Seger “Night Moves.” However, his debut single “Hurricane” seemed to be the fan favorite.
Luke Combs is the real deal. He has flawless vocals, flawless stage presence and can write a damn near flawless song. I need a preacher, I need a savior, how bout yall? Well, it looks like we found him!
