Luke Combs spoke about the true meaning of Christmas and what his plans are for 2020.

What Luke Combs Had to Say

The “Beer Never Broke My Heart” singer spoke about what this Christmas will bring him and his family.

“You know, I think this year will be… I don’t know if it will be any different than any other year,” he said in an interview with his record label. Combs said that he hopes to have his parents and wife Nicole Hocking‘s parents in town along with Hocking’s sister.

“That’s usually what we do, you know, keep it small,” he said. “My mom’s side of the family always has a big Christmas party in Charlotte and me and my wife always go to that every year too. Couple traditions, that’s really it, we like to keep.”

“I think. You know, I grew up, we were always very family-oriented in that sense when it came to the holidays so I have a lot of fond memories of growing up with my cousins and hanging out with my grandparents and my aunts and uncles,” he continued. “That’s the thing I think I look forward to most about the holidays. It’s not getting gifts or getting drunk, which is also cool, but I think just hanging and seeing people you haven’t seen in a while and catching up with them I think is what I look forward to the most.”

His Favorite Christmas Memory

Combs revealed his favorite Christmas memory from his childhood. His parents gifted him his very own television when he was twelve or thirteen. “They put it in the basement and they got me like an old couch from Goodwill,” he recalled. Combs shared that he and his friends would watch cable and play Nintendo 64 together.

“So, that one was pretty neat. I appreciated, you know, the sentiment of my parents giving me my own space and stuff like that was a really awesome thing,” he added. “And, I think eventually the TV ended up in my bedroom so… couple [of] years that lasted and then I wanted to have it in the bedroom.”
