Is Luke Combs a Democrat?

Luke Combs made an epoch-making entrance onto Nashville music scene with Hurricane, his chart-topping torch ballad about unrequited love that captured hearts around the country and the world. His North Carolina-influenced vocals combined grit and soul perfectly, adapting well for intimate settings as well as stadium rock venues.

Combs was instantly beloved due to his incredible voice, songwriting abilities and deft touch on production; however, his views on social issues were less well understood by the general public. After Hurricane, Combs collaborated with Billy Strings on The Great Divide 2021 song that featured lyrics associated with politics that caused much discussion between Americans of opposing political ideologies.

Though Combs does not take a position politically, he has expressed displeasure over the rising tension among Americans and was moved to create his song with Strings for this very issue despite criticism from fans who found him singing about such contentious issues. Not long afterwards, another country artist, Margo Price shared photos showing Combs performing with a guitar featuring a Confederate flag sticker which infuriated fans and nearly put a stop to his career.

But Combs wasn't deterred by his misfortune. In 2018, he released a deluxe edition of his debut album This One's for You with five additional tracks to showcase his sensitive side ranging from sweet tracks like "Beautiful Crazy" and the heartbroken "She Got The Best of Me". This reissue achieved multi-Platinum status and cemented Combs as one of contemporary R&B's brightest new stars.
