Academy of Country Music & iHeartRadio Music Awards nominee, Luke Combs, teams with Spotify for an installment of the “Spotify Singles” campaign to bring fans a bluesy, soul-filled cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Dive” written by Julia Michaels, Ed Sheeran and Benny Blanco, and a stripped down acoustic version of “One Number Away,” the third single from the PLATINUM-selling singer-songwriter’s critically-celebrated debut album This One’s for You.

On his sold-out global first-ever headlining Don’t Tempt Me with a Good Time Tour, Combs surprises audiences with an ever-evolving set-list and frequently adds his pedal-steel, country-soul infused version of Sheeran’s “Dive” to the show. Combs, a long-time fan of Sheeran’s songwriting forte, quickly seized the opportunity to put his vocal and musical perspective on the song with Spotify Singles campaign. In addition to “Dive,” Combs releases a rootsy-acoustic rendition of his Top 25 and climbing single, “One Number Away” that “shows off Combs’ impressive chops” (Rolling Stone) and “delivers sulky, circling, R&B-schooled licks in [Combs’} rugged timbre” (NPR).
Continuing to be “one of the format’s burliest and brightest rising stars” (Vulture), Combs has been honored by The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as a featured artist in the newest exhibit, “American Currents: The Music of 2017” alongside country stars Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, John Prine, Brothers Osborne and more. Chronicling the most significant moments in country music history in the past year, the Country Music Hall of Fame’s newest exhibit features a test vinyl pressing of Combs’ debut GOLD-certified album This One’s for You along with his signature black Columbia PFG fishing shirt and the hat he wore in the filming of his “Hurricane” music video, which has amassed more than 108 million views.
Heralded by Billboard as the “Top New Country Artist of 2017,” Combs embarks on the international leg of his sold-out first-ever headlining Don’t Tempt Me with a Good Time Tour this week. Combs joins the star-packed line-up for the Country 2 Country global music festival with shows in Dublin, Glasglow and making his debut appearance in London at The O2 Arena. After wrapping in Europe, Combs heads across the world to Australia to join CMC Rocks and perform his first-ever headlining shows in Melbourne and Newtown.
