Country singer Luke Combs took a moment to reminisce when he posted a series of photos in honor of his first anniversary of his “What You See Is What You Get” tour.
On Saturday, the North Carolina native took to Instagram to reach out to his fans in a personal way. While many of us struggle to adjust to life amid COVID-19, it’s easy to long for pre-covid activities such as attending concerts.
Luke Combs is just like one of the rest of us. He’s not exempt from missing the unmatched connection that live music creates between all of us.
“One year ago tomorrow, we were playing the 4th show on the What You See Is What You Get Tour with over 25 shows left,” Combs began.
“The band and I had worked so hard to bring y’all this show. Little did I know then, it would be the next to last show on the tour in 2020. Even though it’s in a different context, guess my line “stop takin’ me for granted like I’ll always be around” in “Dear Today” really rings true looking back on it. I miss y’all and shows more than you know.”
Luke Combs Finds Ways to Connect With Fans Amid COVID-19
Despite not performing in person, Combs is giving it his all to maintain his relationship with his fans. He recently announced that he is offering fans all-access to a full show from his last live tour on Feb. 18.
He announced via Twitter: “Sure I’m not the only one, but man, I miss live music. So I got to thinking – my team recorded the shows on my last tour. What would y’all think about me posting a full show to watch? All the camera angles and everything. Thought it may be pretty cool. Maybe the night of Feb. 18?”
Also, Combs is among the several country artists being honored in the annual American Currents: State Of The Music exhibit at The Country Music Hall Of Fame. The association will also honor Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, and Gabby Barrett.
The exhibit honors an artist who significantly impacted the country music genre especially noted in the music and events that shaped 2020.
