Luke Combs’ Secret to Success? The Internet & College Kids Played a Big Part

Luke Combs hit the top of the charts with his debut single, “Hurricane,” and now he’s hoping his second weather-related single, “When It Rains It Pours,” will do the same.

Written by Luke, Ray Fulcher and Jordan Walker, the fun-loving single is currently No. 8 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after 14 weeks.

With two Top 10 singles right out of the gate for the 27-year-old, Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown wanted to know Luke’s secret to success, which turned out to be a two-pronged approach by the North Carolina native.

“I learned guitar when I was 21, I’m 27 now, and so it’s only been about six years, but the second I could play at all—I mean, enough to play a show—I was playing shows, and we had people coming to shows five or six years ago that are still coming to shows now,” said Luke to Kix. “The way I looked at it the other day was someone was asking me this question and said, ‘How do these people know your music in Portland?’ Or, ‘How do they know it in Delaware and you’re from North Carolina?’ One, it’s the power of the internet. Two, when I started, my fan base was in a college town [Boone, N.C.]. I got that fan base and then everyone just went out everywhere else [after they graduated]. They moved to Florida or they moved to New York and said to their buddies, ‘Hey, I know this dude. He’s pretty good,’ and so I think that’s kind of how it blossomed on top of us staying busy and playing a 150 dates a year.”

From Patriot to Punchline By Rick Worthington 9/3/20 Have you ever tried to do something good, but went about doing it the wrong way?
