Fun stories about Luke Combs, Keith Urban & More!

LUKE COMBS: Detective Dreams

Luke Combs is one of the hottest newcomers on the radio, but he didn’t always plan on making it big in country music. In fact, the “Hurricane” singer had dreams of being a detective — but things didn’t exactly pan out. 

Luke Combs “Well, I found out that I had to be a police officer for ten or so years before that, and I just didn’t think that I would necessarily have the brass to get that done. My dreams were a little bit crushed. You know, I just kind of assumed if you were intelligent and could figure things out that you could be a detective, and that necessarily wasn’t the case.”

Keith Urban: “Social media to me is exactly the same as being onstage. As giving and as connected and open as I am onstage, that’s how I am on social media too. They’re both the same thing to me.”
