COUNTRY SONG OF THE YEAR – “HURRICANE”
Nashville, Tenn. – As “one of the format’s burliest and brightest rising stars” (Vulture), River House Artists/Columbia Nashville singer-songwriter LUKE COMBS roars into 2018 launching his new single “One Number Away” to Country radio this week with 88 stations spinning the song and scoring two iHeartRadio Music Awards nominations – Best New Country Artist and Country Song Of The Year, “Hurricane.” “One Number Away” marks the third single off Combs’s GOLD-certified debut album This One’s For You which received “Best Country Album of 2017” acclaim from Uproxx, Rolling Stone and Vulture.
Garnering early praise for “One Number Away”, NPR applauds as Combs “delivers sulky, circling, R&B-schooled licks in his rugged timbre” and Rolling Stone observes “the emotional track shows off Combs’s impressive vocal chops and knack for blending pop-country hooks with edgy, rock-inspired arrangements.” Co-written by Combs, Steven Battey, Sammy Mitchell & Rob Williford, “One Number Away” follows Combs’s back-to-back two-week No. 1 PLATINUM singles – “Hurricane” and “When It Rains It Pours.”
Opening 2017 as a Billboard “Artist To Watch”, Combs proved true to the acclaim by capping his chart-topping year in the renowned publication as one of Billboard’s Top 100 Artist of 2017, No. 1 New Country Artist and No. 5 Country Artist. Rolling Stone celebrates the singer/songwriters’ star-making year remarking “no other country performer had a bigger breakout in 2017 than Luke Combs.”
Combs returns to the road for the 25-city 2018 leg of his headlining Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time Tourstarting in February. Opening weekend of the celebrated tour includes Combs’s two night sold-out headlining debut at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. Combs, a road warrior, answered the demand of fans to extend his first-ever headlining tour into the spring after the 30-city fall leg sold-out entirely within hours of tickets going on-sale.
