Fans of Luke Combs are hoping to hear him sing “Fast Car” on the CMA Awards tonight (11-8). His version is nominated for Best Song as well as Best Single. Luke is also nominated for Entertainer, Album, and Male Vocalist of the Year.
He says he recorded the 1988 pop hit, because it’s one of his all-time favorites. He admits, he was a little anxious of what the original writer and performer of the song, Tracy Chapman would think about his version. He told us this:
“You know, it was awesome. You know seeing that Tracy had heard my cover and that she liked it. Was so awesome. You know, I think you know when you’re an artist and you cover someone’s song you always want the validation of you know, the songwriter or the original artist, you kind of want that you know approval. And so that was super awesome and I’m very thankful for it.” :20 OC: I’m very thankful for it.
