An understated romance! Luke Combs Has an everlasting fan for his wife, Nicole Combs (née Hocking) – It is recorded in country artist songs.
The “Beer Never Breaks My Heart” singer and Nicole became friends by getting to know each other shortly after moving to Nashville in 2014. That relationship changed two years later when the two met at a songwriters festival in Florida.
“Nothing happened to me when we met,” Luke recalled during a joint appearance on the March 2020 episode of the “Current Encounters with Sean Johnson and Andrew East” podcast. “I don’t have a record deal or a publishing deal or anything.”
Nicole, who worked for Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) at the event, remembers taking her first steps.
“I was leaving a songwriter’s round, and he was late, and I was like, ‘Hey, come hang out with us, why are you alone?'” the Florida Gulf Coast University alum explained.
Luke laughs as he details the “terrible” outfit he chose for the occasion. “I’m wearing camouflage track shorts from Walmart … classic, classic stuff,” he joked. “And, like the oldest T-shirt I own.”
However, the “She Got the Best of Me” singer’s ensemble didn’t stop their budding romance. In fact, a few months into their relationship, Luke further strengthened their bond by revealing that he had previously written the hit song “Beautiful Crazy” about Nicole.
Since then, the Florida native has been the inspiration behind many of Luke’s tracks, including “Better Together” and “Nothing Like You.”
Following their August 2020 nuptials, the two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year winner once again paid tribute to his and Nicole’s love story, as he showcased their life together in the April 2021 music video “Forever After All.” moment.
Less than a year later, the couple announced they were expecting their first child. Their son Tex was born in June 2022, just in time for Father’s Day.
“@nicolejcombs and I are in love with this little guy. Mommy and baby are healthy and we are now home with the family,” Luke wrote on Instagram at the time. “Life is good. Everyone welcomes Tex Lawrence Combs to the world!”
Two months later, the new parents celebrated two years of marriage. “Can’t believe I haven’t been married to this angel in 2 years,” the “When It Rains It Pours” musician wrote via social media in August 2022. @nicolejcombs you make every day of my life better than before I love you so much and I can’t wait to spend all the quality time with you and our little family. “
