What a year it has already been for rising country music star Luke Combs! From selling out his first headlining tour to breaking records for five #1 hits, Combs is making a big name for himself in the genre. While the “Hurricane” singer is up for Male Artists of the Year, his performance is what really left the crowd gushing.
This would be Combs’ first time performing at the ACM Awards and trust us, he did not disappoint. Luke Combs took the stage to sing his latest single, “Beautiful Crazy.”
Just like the song, Combs’ performance was a one-of-a-kind show at the ACMs that folks could not get enough of.
Combs released “Beautiful Crazy” as a bonus track on his 2017 debut album, This One’s for You. Before releasing it as a single, Combs received love from his fans when he started posting videos of him singing it on Facebook. It soon became a regular performance at his concerts and before he knew it it was a number one single. The love song went on to be his longest reigning number hit – holding its spot for five weeks.

Man, this album will always mean so much to me. It has given me the opportunity to travel all around the world and meet you guys and play these songs for you. The songs on it are just ones my friends and I wrote that we thought y’all could relate to, not necessarily for an album. I was so ready to get it out for y'all to hear, then the release of it got delayed a few times, but once it finally arrived, the support for it has been unimaginable. About 7 months ago, I got word it had gone gold (500,000 units) and last night the band and I found out it has gone platinum (1,000,000 units). NONE of this happens with out y'all – Team Luke Combs, which I'm honored to have each and everyone of you be a part of! This will always be our first project together and I'll forever be grateful. THANK YOU.
Aside from his breathtaking performance, Luke was a winner for another reason. Just last week, Luke found out that he was taking home the award for New Male Artist of the Year in a well-deserved fashion. We can’t think of anyone who deserves it more!
Luke Combs might not have been in the country music scene long, but he is here for good. We can’t wait to see what this young talent has up his sleeve next!
