I love stories of how country artists are inspired, and this one's great on so many levels. Luke Combs came across a photo that reminded him of the exact day he decided to be a country singer.
It was four years ago… on February 14th, 2014… and he was in the crowd at an Eric Church concert. He's standing in the front of general admission against a barricade, and you can tell he's all-in.
Here's what he wrote in the caption, "That's the day the kid you see on the left KNEW that he wanted to do what that guy on the right was doing. Thanks for the inspiration, Chief."
Thought this was a really cool photo to share. This was taken on February 14th, 2014, almost exactly 4 years ago to the date. That guy on the right had just released his 4th record and man was it good. That kid on the far left... that’s me. A kid with a dream and a hell of a lot of inspiration from that guy on the right. Hard to believe it’s only been 4 years, it seems like a lifetime ago, and in many ways it was but that show lit a fire under my ass. That’s the day the kid you see on the left KNEW that he wanted to do what that guy on the right was doing. Thanks for the inspiration Chief.
Chances are, Luke Bryan will be off the grid and unreachable tomorrow. His Valentine's Day is always reserved for his wife. Luke said, "Well, I mean Valentine's Day is… it's kinda me and Caroline's day just to go and just being with one another for a full day."
Billy Currington’s mom talked him into giving his grade school girlfriend a Valentine's Day gift. Billy says, "We got her a box of chocolates or whatever it was. I remember going down to her classroom and knocking on the door, getting her to come to the door. I remember handing it to her, and then I took off running." Here’s Billy with his love, lookin’ all dressed up!
And Dierks Bentley might have the best advice of all for guys on the big day tomorrow. Dierks wants guys to open the door for the lady, he says, "It's a nice thing to do. Unlocking the door for somebody to get in the car. If you're doing that you're obviously thinking about ways to be respectful, be considerate, be kind and be thoughtful and make for a good first date." I’m sure he did all of those things to capture his wife Cassidy’s heart back in the day!
