Luke Combs debuted his brand new song, “Doin' This,” during last week's CMA Awards in Nashville. It's about doing this very job that just after performing landed him his first CMA Entertainer of the Year award.
He told reporters in the press room that writing songs and singing them was always the plan for his life no matter how little or much money or success he had. “There was never a plan B. Once I decided that this is what I was gonna do, it's what I was gonna do whether that was at this level or at the level that I was at when I started. Music is the thing that I think makes everybody who does what I do's blood pump and gets them out of bed in the morning, and just to be able to do that and write a song about it that you feel like genuinely can connect with some of your peers is really cool.”
Luke also said he wrote the song in response to a popular question he gets asked during interviews — if you weren't singing country music what else would you be doing?
Earlier this week, Luke announced his 2022 stadium tour where he'll be joined by openers Cody Johnson, Zach Bryan, and Morgan Wade.
