On Twitter today, country music star Luke Combs clapped back at a fan who critiqued the lyrics for one of his songs. “Better Together” is the hit song from his 2019 album What You See Is What You Get. In the song, Luke Combs has a lyric about “fresh cut cornfields,” which one fan found a problem with.
In response to this Tweet, Luke Combs politely and somewhat backhandedly corrected his fan.
Growing up in Huntersville, North Carolina, Luke Combs knows a thing or two about farming. He clarified to his fan that when mowing corn to use as a food plot, corn is in fact cut.
Luke Combs Award Season
2020 has been a big year for the young artist despite the difficulties of the pandemic. He saw particular success during the award ceremonies, winning two CMA awards on six nominations. At the Country Music Association Awards ceremony, Combs won both Male Vocalist and Album of the Year awards.
Luke Combs also won Billboard’s Top Country Artist of the Year award this year. The decision was simple. Combs has topped four of the five year-end country charts and finished second in the fifth to Morgan Wallen. On top of that, Combs brought home a bunch of hardware from the CMA Awards. Billboard probably saw that as some indication of the singer’s successful year.
Looking Forward to 2021
Several country artists, Luke Combs included, are already looking ahead to 2021. As 2020 comes to a close, many country artists begin to set tour dates for 2021. While this may look a bit premature given the rising COVID cases around the country, many venues have already experimented with safe concerts.
For example, at the end of October, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit played a four-night run at the Caverns in Pelham, Tennessee. The Caverns are an outdoor venue that typically holds its concerts in an underground cave. Due to COVID regulations, Isbell performed in a makeshift amphitheater in front of the Caverns. The concerts were a huge success and hopefully bode well for live music in the near future.
