Country star Luke Combs took to social media to thank the Country Music Association and all of his fans for a great night at the CMA awards ceremony.

Combs sent out a tweet on Thursday evening thanking everyone for an amazing night.

“What a night! Thank you @CountryMusic and thank you all! #CMAAwards,” Combs wrote on Twitter.

Combs had his fellow country stars buzzing after giving a stirring performance to remember on the 2020 CMA Awards.

The country singer performed “Cold As You” live on Wednesday night. He took the stage at Music City Center with limited audience members that consisted of artists and their guests sat at tables.

Even in light of the socially-distanced show, Combs’ team did not stop from getting into the performance. Combs’ co-writer Ray Fulcher and wife Nicole Hocking were standing, screaming, dancing, and singing along to his performance.
