“The best country singer of his generation”—Esquire
“Combs is a superstar…he will likely remain as such for decades to come”
The Tennessean
September 12, 2023—In yet another monumental feat, reigning 2x CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs sold over a million tickets for his 2024 “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old” stadium tour in the first weekend tickets were on-sale, with 16 of the 25 shows selling out immediately including back-to-back nights at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium, Santa Clara’s Levi’s® Stadium, Milwaukee’s American Family Field, Buffalo’s Highmark Stadium and Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium among others. In just a few days, Combs already matched the number of tickets sold during the U.S. leg of his 2023 World Tour, which sold over a million tickets across 15 stadium shows.
Combs also continues to break records with the upcoming tour, becoming the highest-selling country artist and the first ever to play back-to-back shows at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, the highest-selling male country artist at Santa Clara’s Levi’s® Stadium and Glendale’s State Farm Stadium and the fastest-selling two-day run in the region of Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium.
Additional stops on the tour include two nights at Jacksonville’s EverBank Stadium, San Antonio’s Alamodome, Salt Lake City’s Rice-Eccles Stadium and Houston’s NRG Stadium among others. Special guests for the Friday night shows include Cody Jinks or The Avett Brothers, Charles Wesley Godwin, Hailey Whitters and The Wilder Blue, while the Saturday shows will feature Jordan Davis, Mitchell Tenpenny, Drew Parker and Colby Acuff. See below for complete details.
The tour is just the latest achievement for Combs, who is nominated for four awards at the 57th Annual CMA Awards—Entertainer of the YearMale Vocalist of the YearAlbum of the Year (Gettin’ Old) and Single of the Year (“Fast Car”)—and once again made history last week as the first artist to simultaneously hold the top two spots on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. This record comes as Combs’ single, “Love You Anyway,” reached #1—his 17th consecutive #1, yet another unprecedented feat—while his version of Tracy Chapman’s Grammy Award-wining song, “Fast Car,” remained at #2, after topping the chart earlier this summer. “Love You Anyway” reaches #1 just four weeks after “Fast Car” topped the chart, the fastest return to the top of the chart for an artist with a different song.
Combs has garnered massive success with “Fast Car” as it recently spent five consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and also reached #1 on the Hot AC chart, the first song by a male solo artist to ever top both the Hot AC and Country charts. The song is also currently #2 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart, was recently certified 2x Platinum and has garnered over 512 million global streams to date.
Combs is currently celebrating the release of his new album, Gettin’ Old—a companion to his acclaimed 2022 record, Growin’ Up—which was released earlier this spring via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here). Receiving critical acclaim, The New York Times praises, “…grounded in country, complete with fiddle fills, but it’s also pointed toward a wide pop audience” while Billboard proclaims, “his electrifying-yet-earthy voice soundtracking this time in his life as a husband, father and entertainer at the top of his game” and American Songwriter declares, “He’s a rock star at this point.” Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin’ Old is Combs’ fourth full-length album following Growin’ Up, 2019’s What You See is What You Get and This One’s For You.
A Grand Ole Opry-member and 8x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music Award-winner, Combs has also partnered with Opry Entertainment Group to open a massive multi-level entertainment complex in downtown Nashville, expected to open summer 2024.

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
