Over the weekend, a North Carolina kindergarten teacher reached out to country superstar Luke Combs on Twitter to see if he could help purchase some back-to-school items on her Amazon wishlist.
The teacher, who is named Kelly Kirk, shared on her Twitter page, “Hi @lukecombs! I wanted to reach out and see if you wanted to support an Appalachian Alumni with her teacher Amazon wishlist! I teach kindergarten in NC and could use some help with #clearthelist.”
Hours after Kirk made her request, Luke Combs also took to his Twitter. He tells the teacher, “Cleared it for ya. Good luck to your students and GO APPS!”
Kirk then tweeted to Luke Combs that he made her year. “Thank you doesn’t seem like enough! Please know that you have made such a difference in my student’s lives!!! Go App!!!”
Luke Combs Pays for the Funeral Cost of Men Who Lost Their Lives at Faster Horses Festival
Following the tragic news that three men died from suspected carbon monoxide poisoning during the Faster Horses Music Festival, Luke Combs reportedly paid for the victims’ funerals.
As previously reported, Combs was one of this year’s headliners along with Jason Aldean and Thomas Rhett. The country singer’s rep, Asha Goodman, further confirmed the information to WSLN. A GoFundMe campaign was also started for the victims and has raised nearly $70,000 from 745 supporters. Along with the deaths of the three men, a woman’s body was also found during the concert music event. Michigan authorities have also confirmed the woman has been identified as Melissa Donna Havens.
The Faster Horses Festival organizers acknowledged the situation in an Instagram post days after the event ended. “All of us in the Faster Horses Festival Family are deeply saddened by the tragic losses this weekend. We will continue to stay in close contact with The Lenawee County Sherriff and all other Law enforcement agencies, and follow their lead regarding any and all information as it is officially confirmed. Our hearts are broken for the families, friends, and loved ones.”
Luke Combs Admits He Struggles with Anxiety
In a January 2021 interview on AXS TV’s The Big Interview, Luke Combs opens up to Dan Rather about his struggles with anxiety as well as a form of Obsessive-Compulsive disorder, known as Purely Obsessional OCD, which causes him to create mental rituals in order to cope with stress.
Combs explains, “Essentially my version of fixing in blinds or straightening the carpet is kind of thoughts that I play over and over again in my head.”
Combs further reveals that he likes to think he’s a regular guy and as he gets older, the songs he writes are changing. “I’m not 21 anymore. If you listen to a song I wrote when I was 21 and a song that I wrote, you know, a week or two ago, they are starkly different songs,” he adds.
Luke Combs is currently on the road. He will be performing next weekend at the Rock the South event in Cullman, Alabama. He will also be at the Winstock Country Music Festival later this month in Winsted, Minnesota.
