From singing at the Daytona 500 to sharing a live stream concert to being named to the 2021 Time100 Next list, it's safe to say that Luke Combs has had a big week.
On Tuesday, February 16, Combs played in what was his first live performance since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to inclement weather throughout the southern US, Combs has been unable to return home but was able to pass the time by sharing a very special gift with his fans.
Combs shared an unreleased song. "Growin' Up and Gettin' Old," to his Twitter and YouTube channel earlier this week. In the song, Combs reflects on his life as he points out the things ("them hangovers sure kick my ass these days") that make him realize he is getting older.
Shortly after his release, Combs was named to the 2021 Time10 Next list, which names the top 100 most influential people in the world. "Everything Luke tries...he sounds very much at home," Garth Brooks said about Combs for Time. "He’s a singer who you can tell is really comfortable."
