Gradually, Combs decided that he wanted to pursue a career in the country music industry, and he moved to Nashville, Tennessee.

It didn’t take long before Combs found success as a country artist in Music City. In 2014, he released the EP, The Way She Rides. Two years later, he released another EP, Can I Get an Outlaw. However, it wasn’t until he released his 2016 song “Hurricane,” that Combs really started to begin his rise to fame. The song, which was originally released in 2016 and then re-released in 2017, ended up climbing the charts, with fans everywhere loving both his unique sound and the heartfelt lyrics. Combs followed up the success of “Hurricane” with other hits like “She Got the Best of Me” and “Beautiful Crazy,” and in 2019, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

How did Luke Combs meet his wife?

All while he was becoming a major country music star, Luke Combs’ personal life was experiencing a good bit of luck as well. In 2016, he started dating Nicole Hocking. According to Country Living, the two met at a music festival, right before Combs’ music started getting serious radio play. After realizing that they both lived in Nashville, the pair struck up a relationship, and after dating for two years, they got engaged in 2018.

Hocking and Combs prefer to keep their romance private, but Combs did reveal that Hocking has been the inspiration for several of his songs, including “Beautiful Crazy.” In August 2020, Combs and Hocking tied the knot in a small, private ceremony. “Yesterday was the best day of my life,” Combs captioned a picture from their wedding on his Instagram page. “Probably gonna post a lot of these so just get used to it.”

Luke Combs recently wrote a song for his wife

It seems as though Luke Combs has been enjoying a lot of creative inspiration since his recent wedding to Nicole Hocking. In late October, the singer/songwriter teased a brand-new song for his fans, titled “Forever After All,” a song that he dedicated to his wife. The song is part of his new album release, which is a remastered version of his 2019 hit album and is one of the five new songs featured on the deluxe edition, according to People.

Although Combs and Hocking are still a relatively new couple, it is clear that their devotion to each other is fierce and unwavering, and that they provide each other with the support that is necessary during these trying times. For Combs, a new country music superstar, that support will likely help him weather many storms in the music business.
