Luke Combs’ Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour came to the Golden 1 Center stage this past Saturday, October 26th. After opening for Corey Smith in 2016 at Ace of Spades, Combs came back to Sacramento with more star power than ever.Combs recently tied Shania Twain’s record of 50 weeks in the number one spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with his album “This One’s for You”.
Performing hit after hit, Combs proved he deserves the recognition and hype he has been receiving.His distinct gravelly voice and raw natural talent had the crowd hooked from the first note.
He performed his hits such as, “When It Rains It Pours”, “Beautiful Crazy”and “One Number Away”, while also highlighting some of his lesser known songs on his last two albums. Combs even took a moment to step back and put the crowd’s focus on his equally talented band as they showcased their individual talents on a mash-up of old classics by Travis Tritt, David Allen Coe and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Combs said the strangest thing about becoming famous, is that your name is on everything. From his guitar strap, the drum set, T-shirts, etc. This number one country artist, despite all the awards and fame, is as humble as ever.
“I started writing songs about the time I was 22. I wrote this next song when I was 24, and I never thought that anybody would ever hear this song outside of my mom’s kitchen,” said Combs as he introduced his number one single, “She’s Got the Best of Me”.
Combs closed out the nightof music, beer and a whole lot of fun with his debut single, “Hurricane”;and while the evening may have ended, this country star’s train isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
