"Back then it was. Yeah so this. Eleven am on a monday morning. Hard in lega office early start. We will now write a song pretty much much. It's kind of like that weirdly enough. Is it like a full on music studio you just every each publishing houses is different so like we're dan's at sony. Atv they have actually. Two buildings once called the fire hall which is an old fire station that they bought a couple of rooms in there. That's kind of the vibe. Your spots here. Yeah and then. They have their office. That's across parking lot which is like two story. You're looking office building where the track track guys but executives are in there. They work in that same building and then there are rooms provided. But it can and that's where you're going into it can be sterile majority that very serious go into a college classroom can be very sterile because it feels like. You're working from a cubicle up there like it's very very plano man. I mean here's the thing is like you're not gonna be your job or whatever you're not gonna walk in inspired every day regardless of where you're doing it but but you can be inspired and other places and bring that kinda into the room and go. Hey man my wife told me to wash the dishes this morning and i got to thinking. That's a pretty decent hook acid. Wash the car. Wash the dishes. But you can't wash my love away from you or whatever you dead. Is it really quick. Because you're just sitting here in a tour bus right now. i'm just saying it can be like a somewhat sterile environment but at the same time when you're in your head and it's use the majority of your imagination anyway. It's kinda just a central meeting place to get it done. You know what. I mean so if you wanna break for lunch you can walk outside. You're right there The publisher that you're trying to get the song to is literally across the parking lot And it's just kind of central meeting place for for. I mean if i walked into place and it was just a bunch of john prime posters and willie nelson's in they were incense-burning the corner any more inspired than i am when i'm going to give all it's totally at that rooms in nashville somewhere. If you're in that room you be your couch. Frigging pitchers willie nelson off his wall. So i think yeah there's no rhyme or reason to how you do it you know you just as long as you ended up in the product that everybody likes and agrees with manning one in this this bus. The we've written songs on you outside. We've written songs on the porch. Just kinda wherever you feel like doing it. do you. Guys have an obligation to how many songs you're supposed to write per whatever twelve whole songs years a standard contract which doesn't sound like very much but when you're splitting them up three ways if four ways to as yet counts as a fourth song or half of a song i got you so contractually within the year you're supposed to write twelve. That's the normal. The twelve four so like but we right way. I mean yeah we all all three of us close to seventy eight hundred a year. Yeah i'm amazed at the efficiency when you guys say that you guys can in four or five hours. Start finish and have a song. I would say probably seventy five percent of the time. That's the case. But there is that weird twenty five percent where you go man. My brain is absolute mush. My dogs pissing all over everything in the house at this point. Kids cool if we break and maybe come back and finish this up another because some days dude especially late last friday when you've smoked after sitting in a room trying to make word germ for forty hours at this point. You may just cut it half. You know what i mean. Yup you don't have clear direction of where that second versus going to go or something like that and say. Hey maybe we just sit on this for a day go out a big dudes like don't a lot of big time guys aren't doing fridays. Even now know god of guys that are getting because like the quality of who you're riding with can be as important as right in that extra day four days a week with you know if you right with air church and then you write with whoever you know big time. Artists rider guys. That's different than saying. I gotta go in and right with five people that i don't know upcoming are proven or whatever that's tougher. That's tougher in my opinion to do absolutely so the big guys are they're doing less less quote unquote work. But they're just they have a lot more avenues to success for that potential song you know. What is the party for saying this. But in hanging out you guys. I was a lot of mystique and creating stuff. But it seems like it's southern thought used to kind of occur in people's minds or like on their back porch. Whatever realizing that it's formalized that normal for is that normal for other musical genres like are making like you're making a product. I think you would be shocked. I think what i'm trying to say is that ours genre is the most creative absolutely zero like you pop up prop out to la buddy and it is like an assembly line. Fourteen guys on one song. Three guys in a separate room working on lyrics three guys in a separate room right in the track. Demery guys in a separate room doing the create trying to create a signature lick for this thing to they may after all that's gone that's nine dudes. They may decide that sampling and old queen song is the way to go so then you have to slap everyone that wrote that queen song on top of the nine guys that wrote it together and you're talking fourteen or fifteen dudes are credited with writing that one song. That's what it's really like on run really popular music. It's insane at. That's even crazy to me. I've never been to right. But i just from my experience in nashville and how we do it there. I can't imagine being in a room with that. Many people trying to win something done and then they meet back up together and then they put it all. You know. They might have a little twenty-second track thing. They build together in the beginning and go all right. Here's the basis and this guy's sitting there home and something you know what would be an our name and artists who like a pop artists. Who's pro unless you don't want to. Who's processes like this all of them. Yeah i would say. I mean i would think it would be easier to name. The guys who aren't who i would say it's your is doing. They're definitely not doing that. He's appears on he's absolute but he's also the biggest artists in beyond say would be a good example of someone who's probably not adele literally literally connected to their songs as much as like about say at age year in her or us death. Adele was probably one of the more organic ones out there. But i guess what i'm starting to trying to say is like like they're they're inspired artists right there. I made this analogy all the time. And there's like. I have a guy where with who's like kind of a raw guy right so when he comes in everything he everything he throws out is going to be his. He has to write his own. Original is like has too. He can't say anything that is it true to his life. So it's he wants to do this. It's going to sound like this and we're going to let and your job is a songwriter. That day is to help him convey the message that he wants to convey correct so there there guys like luke who are pretty consistently inspired and have ideas and know what direction they want to go with songs but are also open to what maybe you've had happened in your life in the six months or some sort of hook you talk back for them and then you have other guys and and look. I'm not saying any any one of these three people and i'm talking about here wrong. It's just different ways of doing business so this far this far guy here he may be just an entertainer and he don't necessarily care what he's thinking about as long as he's on Dancing with the stars or something. You know what i mean. He just all he wants you to do is to give him a product so for this guy there would be no real point in me and this other guy getting together. Write a song for this guy right. Maybe not even me and luke together on the song for this guy. Even the lou can do that. And i'll make the statement that the guy he's talking about is not a specific person. Obviously but the guy that goes strictly cut songs is the is the pillar of giving these dudes jobs absolutely hundred percent because without those guys. There's no these guys yeah. Artists wrote their own songs. There would be no. Songwriting community are completely. Because those guys would just write their own songs in their house and put comes out and that would be it. How how big is the songwriting community. So how many. How many taylor there. I mean it. I mean it's been. I think in the year. Nineteen ninety two ninety five..

"You're great. You know. He's like. Cool Man Yeah you know is meet. You guys you. Thing you know and. I remember the the you know the year. Later when you saw me in stuff you guess got in touch with channing. To get a right with man I was like so excited about that I I'd been driving my two thousand dollars neon which I'd had since I was sixteen at that time and I just bought A used Ford. Fusion I always call it a probe. Fusion a used Ford fusion which I thought was like A. Car Ever, at that time. Laws for me. I car that had the little car phone in it where you could answer a call and. Speakers and so I was big time. And so it was a couple months out. And so the day before the right. I hadn't communicated with Singleton at all I. Just knew like hopefully, this right still happening because it's tomorrow. And channing, we're good I'm driving down. Yes. So the day before I'm driving into my riot or whatever, and I get a call on my car phone. which I'm already excited to answer. carphone. So I'm like hit the call button and here's Jonathan and he was just likes Mega Casual He's like, Hey man. You know pump the riot. So like what's your deal? But I was kind of like. Like you WANNA fight. What's Do you something wrong and I'm like, what do you mean? He's like like you're publishing. You know like what's your thing and I was like Oh I just don't have a potion ill, he was like, well, D- won't one and I was like, yeah, he's like all right. Cool. Just do one I'll see warm I was like all right okay cool and then that. happened. then. And happen real after that it was actually. That was a good deal to make for was it was on with So. Of course six feet apart talks about what you're looking forward to when all this is over. Yeah. and. Just in terms of getting back out and playing live. Talk. A little about that. If you thought about the first show, you're going to play when you can play I. Mean I think you know right now there is no plan I mean the I mean the the hope is that we can do. The shows that we left last year is literally where we'll pick up. So the hope the tentative plan as of this very second. Is that we will do those headlining shows at CDC. Next year. Data in the plan at this exact moment. Whether that happens or not I don't know but I hope that that happens obviously and maybe it will maybe it won't. But thousand. Now that's the plan and I'm pretty stoked about that because I you know I left a bad taste in my mouth not getting to. Play for those people and they were those people only get a country show. Once a year and that's kind of that week. There's not a lot of acts doing headlining going to Europe Unplanned Club shows You just can't afford to do that. So you know there's definitely a huge base for it over there. That's that's heavily underserved and so. I'd love for that to be the first show back. Well, I mean fingers crossed. We're all hoping that we're out of this by then and we're all looking forward to seeing some of this music live Lou..

"So I mean for us. It's been weird but for me, it's weird because I'm not seeing you know ten or twenty people at the office, but you're not getting a chance to see twenty thousand people. In an arena that that that's a big difference what what does that feel like? Home, it sucks to be frank. This was going to be you know I think this is going to be career defining year. For me as far as touring goes and You know obviously, it was a massive honor getting the entertainer nod. Today but but you know I would have loved to have been able to be out there and really put a stamp on it. With my numbers and try to try to use that to competition for. You know to make my case for maybe win in that thing you know and so it's kind of. It's weird in that sense because like you said it, my first stadium show was going to be this year background went to college and you know that was a huge deal to me and in that town, it's really small town. So it's a big deal for them tourism dollars wise and So it was just you know two nights a massive square garden two nights at Boston Garden I mean every show on the tour was sold out I. Mean I think we? Sold. Over half a million tickets or something mean it's it's like insane. You know the amount of people that were not getting the play for this year you know and so and obviously we were hoping to use that success from this to. Transition into. Potentially. You know garth level. Shows neck. You know next year was kind of the hope. So now that's just kind of all been paused. Think. Sure because if you're going to mount that bigger production, you've got to start thinking. Well in advance. Stadium. It's two years to plan that. It's not just like you know what? Let's do that next month you know it's I mean it's a year year and a half of planning the production and new gathering the trucks in the buses and adding staff and you know. So it's and that's all stuff that I. I guess I don't have to be involved in, but I'm like pretty heavily involved in making sure that all that stuff happens. You know I like to. I'm not a control freak because I'm not the guy that necessarily knows. What should or shouldn't happen but I do like to know what's going on and be involved in this decision. So it's not like I'm just going. Let's do stadiums call me when we're going. Either you know what I mean, right? You do more than wait for the wait for the car to pick you up. you know you you mentioned your managers, a couple of times. I had the the pleasure speaking with the Lynn Lynagh recline and Chris Cathy your managers for billboard and I remember something people always talk about how quickly things happened for you. But I remembered something the Capi told me and I went and looked it up. He was talking about how the when he first joined up with you. That you guys were in a van not even trailer. It was an extended fifteen passenger van within the last two rows pulled out for the gear and we toured in that for five months so and he was driving yes, he was driving. So at six guys in their gear stuff together in a van for for five months that that sounds like some pretty hard work. Yet was and we were playing about four shows a four shows a week. Then that time and you know mean Capi one is will be two guys a pop at that time. I mean he's he's recently dropped about one hundred, fifty bills But me and him were Ryan Shotgun just out of necessity really at that point. So he was driving I mean and he wasn't like Oh we'll trade off. Like that guy drove every mile. For six months. And I mean, four nights away he quit. You know six figure job and. Blew through his entire life savings. To come here and drive a Shitty old van with some kid in it and a couple guys he met at the tin roof and g go play shows. You know I mean like so that level dedication to me is like, what sold me? On copy as a manager like I. Can't question the guys commitment at that point. But but you have this effect on people because. If I remember right Capi told me that he saw you play a show. And then almost immediately started pitching you on on being your manager. Jonathan do I remember right that you also you saw Lucas songwriting he had. On a two-day. WHO It was. Yeah. It was on a Tuesday at ten revival Robin channing those guys put on. Me Randy Montana standing in the back drinking a beer thinking was the. University. And so we're always like the old guys we're like, Hey, man, we'll play the anniversary just put us on it like eight o'clock you know so we can go home early. and. So we had played we got done with standing at the bar drinking out for a walk out the door, and here this guy starts singing and we kind of jog back you know. To the back. Is sitting there playing in. Yeah. We're so as Google search him in because we were the only ones that didn't know like the people in town. Like the people who were in the business who were there were the people who didn't know who was everybody else was there to see him and we're singing all the songs and we were like. Fans everyone else was like fans, right. Yes the silly music row people were standing there trying to figure out how they. How they can talk to this guy and I figured it out real quick. It was Turkey hunting and deer hunt. I. Went pretty well after that. It was I remember when I so Jonathan I've probably told him the story before but so me and rob one of the guys in my band Wilford right with stuff we were like. We're like still super. John Singleton. Fans you know like. We're listening to the Grove we're in deep were in the wormhole John Singleton you know, and so the year before that like one year to the day was the anniversary before that. Me And rob went to watch you play. At this thing and you're at the bar getting a beer and we were just kind of sitting like no one was around you. And that way we were just kind of like we were just kind of looking over I'm like. Dude. That's asked him you know. Like. And we just went over there and we're like. John Singleton..

"One of the detract we haven't talked about is my kind of folk, which is a real party track my kind of. rhymes with fire up a little smoke. And it does end with some truly rocking instrumentals. Guitarist and your organised trading Solos. Tell me about recording that one. Chip, go ahead on mountain to give us a little well, Jonathan I had kind of. Talked about when we're looking at all the songs and the range of the things we were GonNa do we knew that one was the one that? Guy's GonNa Sling it in stretch on a little bit even though colds you we knew needed to be just burned edge, but this was the one. That we wanted the guys to. Step out of the bitten slaying on and. The feel of the swing in it, you know it, it was kind of groovy in a way So the guy's caught on to that pretty quick and in Rundowns, we would just let them run a little bit sometimes when you're going you WANNA. Let them you. You're kind of like work in a little bit into to to the range that you want them to play in and the things you want to do. But at the same time you want them to feel it run a little bit and and sometimes that brings stuff to the service that you. Okay. Wait we need that we need that in there and so what you hear on the Altro. On the backside of the song is when those guys start a new, what we're already doing and what we wanted but then we just let them go and they came in on the backside and then it was just too many little things that happen there and that's happens a lot on recording sessions where you get your versus ironed out. That's what everybody has to be so regimented and then. When when the tape machine stops or it's in the fade and everybody loosens up then some really cool stuff. Yeah. So it made sense to just let let that go for a little bit and let them play. Yeah. No, it's a ton of fun and and and so are you cutting that live at at that point? Mostly Yeah I mean we, we grab a rundown. We play it down several times to get. We're looking at little pieces each time, and then we sort of get the whole thing pulled together where we go. Okay. Everybody sort of knows the roadmap and they know what we're GonNa do but Jonathan I are still trying to look at all the pieces like puzzle pieces and they all have to fit together. In a way that you still need to mold them but you're trying to get it as much of it live as you can. You're trying to get it. And you know you have a limited amount of time but you're still going let's let's do it again and then you get I don't know eighty five percent. We get maybe in there, and then after that, we have to come back and start looking at each part and maybe trim up some things but you try to particularly in Nashville where we've got such amazing players the best. Players in the world. And you've got trouble not to mention gas who played on Luke's earlier record. So you know and here we are. Trying to fill a slot and make it. Upgrade it make it feel great. But still make it feel like Luke and so jerry row and John Saul Saul of those guys who had played on those early records sometimes, it was like, well, Hey, man. What should we be doing and there's nothing wrong with that we do it all time. They're great players you know. Yeah. So. That's one that. Really would have been a lot of fun to see you play. A big space talk to me a little bit you. You'd stadium shows book. Do you you're doing a headlining arena tour in in fact, if I've got this right, you were overseas and playing a little bit when we? Went into lockdown and you came home right before the CDC festival. Is that right? Yeah we. So we were there. We were there for probably a week before we had an I'd left. I think I left a day before the first arena show. So they've because I've played see to see that I. Guess Technically twice one time all the way through. But I was I was GONNA headline this year And so it's like Oh to in in Dublin Oh two in Glasgow to London. Those are the bigger arenas that you headline the one night and it's three different headliners than we all swapped cities every night. So there's three shows in a row in the same city, but it's three different headliners each night, and so we all swap out. But what they do, they've they're trying to expand the scope of that festival, and so they added a show this year in Berlin and a show in Amsterdam, and they'll smaller like. Two to four thousand seat venues because they're just trying to establish. A country music base there like it's such a new, they call it American music by the way. Well Okay and they called American music which is pretty interesting and the headline is you would have been trading places with were Darius Rucker and Eric. Yeah and so we went Eric didn't play the two smaller shows so he actually never came over. The day we had to leave was the day he was supposed to leave. And so me and him were texting back and forth like what's going on I'm Texan and Mike don't get on the plane like you know like everything's his people were there his people were that he was in the band weren't there yet? Okay. His guys had flown over with the gear and stuff like the day before or something which you know that's unfortunate but Yeah, we were all there and luckily we all got back I mean I was I mean I was to be honest with. You crushed the night that we found I mean I was. Absolutely trashed drunk the night I found out. Like embarrassingly drunk you know but like fun like having a great time because we played the two shows we play in Berlin and we had two days off to just. Do whatever and so we were and Nicole were at somebody's house and we had some drinks and I gotta call it like. I. Mean One am. Or something that was like. I had some big rights lined up over there the next day and ended up having to get on a plane like. Eight or nine in the morning and just. Go Straight back home. It just stopped everything is stopped up and did you have to get on a plane right away because that was when they issued the travel advisory Yes recommending everybody come home now or you may not be able to do it. Yes. So I got the call from management at one am because my manager was over there but obviously, he was awake and we had seen that things were getting more. It was already kind of on the line of like you know what we're going old dominion they backed out before the thing. And so we were all calling hen. What if the like it doesn't get canceled may back out with that. Look bad on them. You know and I mean, they ended up making a good call I'm glad that we went and played those shows because I had a great time you know and had still had some great experiences even though. The circumstances were different but. There was no meet and greets there was no interviews or signings. They were already doing preventative measures at that time because it was starting to become. A will people are starting to get it in other places other than China at that time. And so then it was like I got the call and literally I went to bed and they're like there's going to be a car to get you at seven because I was two hours outside of London. At that time. and. So we had to come get a car, get me Nicole, and we went straight to the report from where we were. Straight to the airport and then straight home in straight into quarantine..

"How I got here I guess. You were you were just talking about your mom and what you see. There was a dad song on what you see even though I'm leaving and then in these additional tracks that are on the deluxe version. There's a mom song that's added without you. Yeah Yeah so The way that Kinda Song. Played Out was you know? The first verses about my parents? Second. Is about my fiance? Third, verses about the FANS I. To be kind of A. An oath to like the main kind of. Things that kind of keep me grounded in you know because. Sometimes I feel really guilty about. Being the guy that's always. Everybody wants to talk to me and everybody wants to say what did you do to do this and why is that you? That does this and everything and like. I know I'm very flattered by that. You know and and I've definitely worked hard to be where I am but it's definitely a massive team effort that. Nobody sees you know it's it's chip in Jonathan and Massey in my managers, and you'll my parents and my fiance or my wife now, and you know so it's it's there's all these people that I feel like don't get. The credit. You know the fans if they weren't there than there is just none of it would work anyway. So it's A key lyric in that in that track is it's me they give credit to, but I think I have this right but me don't mean a thing without you, right? Yeah, and so that was kind of a hook that honestly me and I wrote that with Dan is boy and wider it. In Boone up in one of those being trips you've been up there and. We ran a little cabin up in boone and sometimes we'll go up there for two weeks and just all have writers up for two weeks and okay and I learned that from church told me about those kind of things that he does and it's a good way to like lock in. To just riding. It's better than going Oh, I've got a ride in three weeks and it's just on a random Tuesday. Can't really get in prepared for that. You know it's like but if you know you're going to be up here for two weeks and you're going to be trying to write two songs a day for two weeks than like you kinda gotta buckle up. There's no. I rent this cabin, there's no service almost. It does have TV. But. It's like there's not you're not playing xbox and. You know there's just Kinda. You sit on the porch and just kind of write songs and drink beer and stuff all day, which is really awesome but. Yeah we were right NAT. We didn't have a Hook I mean the whole song was pretty much done. And I just kind of sat there and You know. I literally just came pulled that Cata. The thin air pretty much. And it was like. I mean it wasn't like we were just riding those things like, oh well, let's talk about your parents you know. And then let's talk about the all the stuff they do for you and. We had everything except the hook which usually never happens like that. Usually kind of right around the hook a bit. and. So that was different. You know just kind of sat there for two hours just. Beat my head into a wall. Dan and Wyatt probably didn't think I was doing anything. They're probably Ghia we're stuck in his cabin with this fat he be writing songs. So you know. But I mean, sometimes I have something that you know when Jonathan is the demo done while I'm taking ship you know. Song is super interesting to me because it's it's without you. Could. And how many without you songs you know? So I can see where you would avoid that but I loved how it was me anything without you. Totally that's had been that we hadn't heard that version of that. Song. which I thought was really really cool. And I guess again Jonathan You were talking about. The negative and the positive in those other songs we were talking about without you just as a title does sound like a song about losing someone does yeah. Yeah and IT Kinda of tricks. He's not what you expect here and without you I mean it feels like the Motley crue song or the other eighteen version. Right. Exactly. But. It does it moves on and that's what. We. Spend more time on that in a songwriting room. On the line before the hook if the then we gotta make the line before the hook pop and. Pop, really not moving until it does. Give me how do you mean give me an example of of the line before the Hook and how it pops it's just like I would compare it to. E Can't hit a home run without a good baseball swing you know what I mean. And like the line like that setup line to me is the sales it. That's the hook can be great. You can have a great song title. But if the line before it doesn't set it up to. You know hit it out of the park. You know throw the right pitch. You're not gonna hit it out of the park. Like it's kind of something along those lines, you know it still feels good but you still look always wants to be like Oh man after that you want to say. Yeah. Yeah. He still wants that happened, which is great. I mean your spend a Lotta time banging your head against the wall trying to figure out what it is. That, song in particular. Felt like it did it. All the time I was like, oh Great. Greatest hits. mean a thing without you. Oh, I get it. So we're talking about a song where you bang your head against the wall for two hours to come up with the hook. But you're still in a situation where you're writing a song or two a day. Are there are there any time I mean what's a song that? Lingered for weeks if not months or years there anything that you, you had even more trouble catching the hardest. The longest one I've ever done was there was a song on what you see is what you get called. God. The title will be right now I wrote it withdrew Parker. Rob Wilford. And it was seven it was seven rights over two years. To get it, it was is that is that nothing? Nothing about you that's it. Yeah and we really loved that song and we had kind of got the hook and had some verse stuff and. I mean we had. Yeah. It was over the course of like two and a half years. It was seven different right like moving lines around and then decided we didn't like it and then bringing stuff back in on you know sometimes it's like I. Mean. That's the only song I've ever had. That's been the even remotely close to that long. I mean had some that were like maybe three rights over the course of. Tier three months but that one was just like we knew we liked it a lot and we wanted to get it right. But that was the point where I was getting like super busy with Taurine, and so it ended up just getting spread out over this like immense amount.

We're talking about Ledo pizza with an all new online ordering website for easy ordering Lido Pizzas Square because Ledo pizza never cuts corners, check it out at LEDO PIZZA DOT COM How'd you learn develop a songwriter? Your instinct is that you you want that little more there and and where where does that come from? was there a point just as a listener when you were even before were writing songs where you were just listening to music and thinking how does that work I, like the way that line that I like the way that sound. Had Up. Yeah and I think what it was is you know I listen to country music when I was younger when I was living in Charlotte and on the radio with my with my mom that's always listen to this country results in the Vince Gill and Brooks and Dunn Clint Black and Garth and Alan. Jackson like those were the guys that were on the radio when I was listening to the radio and that's what I can't remember you know. and. Maybe subconsciously though songs. Always had more of kind of a story and so once we moved to Asheville when I was eight or nine, I kind of just stopped listening to country music because when you're eight or nine, you just kind of listen to what your parents listen to. And so you don't have your musical tastes when you're eight years old, you're just listening to whatever mom and dad listened to and so my parents, my mom, my dad was never really into country music. He's from Ohio and. His. First concert was. It was we'd had I think it was the WHO, and it was the night we landed on the moon was my that was my dad's first concert. And so he kinda loves Zeppelin Pink Floyd, the WHO the rolling stones, the Beatles like my dad's not. He wasn't listening to Merle haggard like I'd be lying if I was in an interview saying daddy was spitting a listening to waylon jennings know he just wasn't doing that and so I was listening into. My mom really was more of who I listen to music with because as an only child I spent the majority of time with my mother because my dad. Worked full full-time and so did my mom but she was the one that was kind of. She got home first and we wrote in the car to get school close like I wasn't doing that stuff with dad you know he was mowing the yard and fixing shit at the house and stuff. So she was listen to like Tom Petty John Mellencamp Dave Matthews like that was the kind of stuff mom was listening to at that time like the satellite album Dave Matthews was on in our house a lot And so I was just out like you know not by choice because I love Vince Gill's my favorite ever when I mean that was my first concert when I was six years old that was my birthday present was to go see Vince Gill at the Charlotte Knights Baseball Stadium and my grandma my mom took me. And I mean, it was awesome. You know and and so. I love that stuff but I just kind of it. Just Kinda fell out of my life for some reason and so once I got back into country music it wasn't until I was probably eighteen or nineteen years old. And so I had missed. A decade's worth of music. So. When I rediscovered it, I rediscovered it because of our church, he went to the same college that I went to wreck in a friend of mine handed me his album. Whatever little did I know that he was on tour with John Singleton. Jonathan. Was Opening for him at the at that time. say manager and stuff like that and so. I think it's really. I mean, really his songwriting was something that because I went back and kind of. What here little bits and pieces of country music through high school and stuff, and I'm like man that's really not for me because it's It just didn't have that thing that I thought Brooks and Dunn had that I thought man skill had there was always. Something to be somewhat emotionally invested in as a listener, it was like Oh this guy's like. Getting his heart broken or he's you know there's a story about something going on and that just wasn't there in those ten years that I missed a lot. Right you listen you listen to a garth brooks she listened to. The. Thunder rolls you that's like a whole movie. There's a whole movie in that. There's something going on and then so then when I heard Eric Church it was like the missing link of like. Modern my era quote unquote of Country Music meeting back up with the stuff that I fell in love with and so then when I picked the guitar up three years later That was what I gravitated towards was. Eric stuff which I thought. You know it's still think is You know on a different level than anyone else's really and then I got into looking at well then I wanted to get into who actually wrote these songs. Was the thing that I became obsessed with. became a fan of Jonathan Singleton and Casey Beth third and all these guys and I was like those are the guys that I wanNA hang out with and. Do stuff with you know like because they're bringing something to the table they're. Helping, they can help me become better at something that I want to get better at that. I'm trying to do better at and that was a long process but I think that's you know that's the short long version..

"Years probably two three years I know I've seen a I've seen a version of it floating around with your writer on Youtube I think yeah, job? Rob. Me and Rob Brennan Kenny Road on that with me and Kenny Rankin in. Wilford. Wilford Yup had some a buddy of mine that was going to cut it. So you may have seen him do he ended up? That's so yeah. Yeah. Yes. So that one in cold is you both breakup songs? And the other guy is we're saying a couple of years old how about colds you when when was that recorded? January it was right before. Yes. So right after kind of I did a two week. Kind of like riding retreat deal. down. Down in Florida. And wrote that with. Jonathan Randy and shame minor the UN chain started that right? Yeah. Shane had the same had the idea thing. Yeah and so we kind of worked stone it a little bit and then we had randy on that riding trip. So we like. Hey. Louis. On this thing and it same fall out pretty pretty F. quick. When I remember we wrote a bunch those couple days. Yeah. Nicole was somewhere else. She was down there for the trip but when y'all were there she like went and visited her parents was yeah. So we just Kinda wrote we wrote the whole time the whole time. And so it sounds like song just a continual process for you guys I mean in in that case you were you were on a retreat of some sort but I know Jonathan you worked with with with Luke on beer never broke my heart and I think that was was that ridden while you were you were on tour. Yeah, that was one looks early tours. What that was a club that was. That was the don't tip. Good Time tour. I. Think and I, think we were in. Zero Surrey Columbia Missouri I think is where we were on the bus. Because we started that thing. I had that idea we started working on it and then I'm talking like. I came in from like we started it maybe got a verse idea going. Line of the chorus I come back to the boss and these guys are. Drinking Beers. And they're not like rioting and I'm like what's going on and they're like Oh dude, here's the demo. This thing we did. Okay. Sweetie then you know so they just kind of. took the reins on that one and I just got lucky and and Randy was on that song. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. So it's Kinda the same we you know. At that point to on beer never brought my heart I. Remember because he was playing that was probably a five, six, seven, hundred seat club that night you'll probably. was saying you know I need I need I'm GonNa play I'm GONNA be playing. You know stadiums next year I need something that Iraq like this and we were kind of laughing at him when his back turned you know and then. And then come to find out he was telling the truth. He was a had the foresight to know he needed a song like that. You know and and Cola's us in the same vein. That same of the scratches, the same Mitch scratches the same age as. Yeah. So we were kind of heading down that road. We kinda new with cold you to you know that we were going to end up being in that direction and and have a closer an-and opener hopefully and luke when you say those songs scratch the same. Are you talking about like the the big riffs behind them were to be the they're both they're both break up songs in a way I. Think it's the feel thing like a combination of both like the lyrical content is is similar. In it's going in the same direction, but it's also that like heavy. riff thing we were going over a mixed thing maybe a few weeks ago in me and chip talked on the phone and we had gone through a couple of different mixes of it and I was like and I'm just missing those big. Like riff fills in the verses like that like shown key thing just wasn't in there and it was there. It just wasn't as up as I thought it needed to be. Intensity of the song the add to pour some sugar on it as it. Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely tip does that he's. I think to is is looking for in those songs like you. You're. You know you WanNa just ride a fun uplifting beer-drinking Song. But Luke always kind of wants a little more than and I didn't I've never thought about them both may break up so but it would make sense that we're trying to find some story to go along with the thing. To go along with the song that feels gray. beer-drinking drinking song but it's like also like a breakup song. UPTEMPO negative I think. TIMBO NEGATIVE Term. I. Think That's how you get there. There I'm sorry I didn't mean to interrupt you but.

"About his hope for the future. Here's what else he had to say. needed. Luke counts welcome to inside the studio you, you have some guests with you. Would you would you mind introducing them? Yes? Yes. I have chip here in Jonathan. My producers here very handsome. Jonathan's making white trash spit. Cup. Boys. Why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself here gentlemen let's let's do that. Hey, I'm Jonathan Singleton and been a songwriter and Guitar Player and. Barbecue cooker for a long time kidding about the barbecue cooker thing. And been friends for a long time. We've done a lot of songwriting together done a lot of playing together and. was excited to jump in here and do some do some production stuff with chip matty's chip. Matthews and. I have been around Nashville for a long time working in the trenches engineering producing. And I met Luke a few years back through CAPI I believe and some Sony stuff and we got the opportunity to work together a few times. And then I was lucky enough for him to invite me to work with Jonathan on this record. So that's where we are today so. Luke I know you've talked a little bit. Live. Streams about what Corentin has been like for you. You you you have gotten to enjoy a little bit of time off the road play some call of duty. Turkey hunting at your place. Also, I believe you've been raising some chickens. Yes. That has been the the bulk of my activity over the last six months or so Turkey hunting only for a couple of months obviously. But yeah, lot some call of duty I. Appreciate you saying that and not. An ASS load of duty, which is probably more realistic. But no yes. I mean I've just been hanging out. I just got married. A month ago today which was great, and so I've just been spending time with. My wife, which is still weird saying that still still not used to saying that yet. But yeah, it's been really a really weirdly good. Strangely great year a lot of ways and you know it's Kinda sucked ass and a lot of ways to I guess you know you've also been doing some writing and recording during the pandemic and. Of course. You've heard six feet apart and I know the story behind that is you had a songwriting session scheduled in April. You didn't WanNA. Let it go and tell me how did the idea of of writing about what was actually going on right then I come up and then how was writing and recording that song different than usual. So I had a right scheduled with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder and I hadn't written with Brent before. So I was really want to do that because really big fan of his and he's really great what he does and so Brent lives in Georgia and so he was. Doing it over facetime or something. So we all like zoom I texted them. The night before and I was like hey. Should we just write you know a song about this stuff or whatever, and they actually sent me. That tidal and they were like we were actually talking about this before. You. Texas. So we were all kind of on this just happened to be on the same page with it. And we wrote it the next morning it was probably like. Hour and a half maybe or something, and we were like done with it because it was just kind of like just kind of fell out because it was just everything that was because of the corn teams like super, new and weird time and. Like things were. Very uncertain. But now realizing that they were less uncertain I guess than they are now even probably but at that time that was like. Really Weird. Because we and we kind of all like, oh, it'll be over in you know may or whatever, and that's kind of what we all think, Oh yeah. Those happy days when we thought this would ever end. Yes it was like Oh this'll be done in six weeks. It'll be you know we'll be good summer common. We'll be good and they and and so then I you know I I hid up chip. Here and I was like man like let's just go and because I put the song I played the song. I. Think the next night on. Instagram or something something like that and and got a really solid response out of it and sounds like man we should just record this thing and nothing else going on because there was a recording moratorium from Sony. We weren't supposed to be doing anything. And so I had to kind of go through. And Express An are what you wanted to do. And then. Had to find a studio that was willing to let us in which was that was like really strict at that. Yeah. It was very insanely. And I. Think it was really honestly that had been working with those guys and been with him in person and I was like, Hey, can I get into this thing and when we first started talking about it was small and they were like sure and then when we showed up that day The owner came down. He's like this is a lot more than I thought you bring in how how many folks were you bringing in? Well, we still cut lean we cut with. I think we cut four peace. On light and then I only had it. Was Me You You're there Massey was there. Yeah. Second Engineer. Very. Crew, and we were never in the same room with the with the musicians. We never even entered the same room as them either. No we had we had. We got separate space for Luke that was not even part of the main studio right and then. We had to submit protocols to label into the studio, and then really kind of had to go on the down low because I think people were still kind of coming to terms with. That we shouldn't be doing that and. All it took was somebody getting infected in that window we would have been we were shut down for sure. So really getting in fast and then we got the song and overdubbed it and one guy one guy is just peeled off and left and never even came in the control room. They just came into their booth, the recorded and then left kind of waved on the way out. Yeah. So that was really weird But we try to keep it simple so that we could get what we needed and move on and then And then I guess you sang right then. Yeah. We got the final. We we kind of just put a MIC IN A. Room right there. Yeah. We're all the musician guys were and just cut like three passes and that was it. We were out of there. And it was like, what? Three hours four hours yeah. About four hours probably and then. And it was mastered two days later. I mean, the results are great and it it is such. A moving song. Especially, you know from from my perspective because I care so much about music that the whole part about. You know it's a mystery how long this thing goes but they'll be crowds and they'll be shows, which is something we're all looking forward to, and we're still in that mystery moment. So. There are six new tracks on this deluxe version of the record and six feet apart newly written newly recorded. I, know some of these other songs have been around for a little while. We're any of them newly written written under these quarantine times. He's were some that we've been hold onto for a while of them were probably around I know. Two of them were around when I recorded this album that's out now. And so one of them was the other the other guy that's been around for. Three.

"So I guess, this time out is luke combs who has just released a deluxe edition of his second album. What you see is what you get in the deluxe edition adds five new songs to the one new song. Six feet apart. To Song about the pandemic that Luke added to the album in May. So all in all, that's impressive. One Hour and twenty one minutes of foot stomping songs about beer. Good Times and broken hearts. As, well as slow ones about family. Memories. And the kind of love that could make a man stop stopping his feet and settled down. High caught up with Luke on a day in September that was special in two kinds of ways I. He'd been up early that morning. To help announce the nominations on Good Morning America, and in fact, he snagged six nominations himself including album of the year and entertainer of the year. But Second Luke was celebrating his one month anniversary. And it takes a special kind of lady to appreciate a man who writes songs comparing their bond to the match made up in heaven between good old boys and beer the way luke does in better together but luke. Luke combs found her and in August he married Nicole Hawking his girlfriend since two thousand sixteen although as he told me. They didn't know exactly where they were getting married. Until the last minute, we had to change our venue a before the wedding. which was very interesting and we actually didn't know. We had two different venues and we didn't decide until the morning of the wedding which and what brought the change on what was the reason for the change well. So we ended up getting we were GONNA get married in Key West. And the city imposed Harsher Kovic regulations the week before the wedding. and. So we were gonNA invite it was going to be about one hundred and seventy five. People at the wedding and there they wouldn't allow any gatherings over fifty. So we had to cut from one five to fifty the like the week before the wedding. Find a new venue finding new hotels. Get everyone that we still need to be there. And then when we got there There was a hurricane coming to the snack area which up until the night before I. Guess it was Friday. Evening it was like. Fifty fifty chance like this hurricanes either GonNa. Come. The. Right exactly where we're at orange GONNA fear off. And it was an I'm trying to think what the right joke is for a guy who has a hit song called. Hurricane thought. Actually. Thought. About that a lot of times during during that process. But so it was we had to make it to. Get married at this outside place. Or Get married in the conference room at a hotel which would have been terrible. So luckily, it missed us when we didn't have to do that about that. Hurricane Hurricane is aus which caused significant damage when it did hit the US in August. But the loop comb song about a break-up. Released independently on Luke's third EP in. Two, thousand fifteen. It did so well, it it helped lead to his signing by. Columbia Nashville. rereleased the song in two, thousand, sixteen at which point it became the first of Luke's nine number one country singles. Like a lot of rappers these days early on in his career Luke tapped the power of social media to build up a significant following an independent artists before he ever signed to a major label, and while that might be a common story in hip hop. It's a little bit more unusual in Nashville. And we comes is thirty now, which makes him a solid citizen of Gen Y.. So when he was starting out in his early twenties, it was natural for him to use fine instagram snapchat twitter to get his music out and connect with people. In fact, he's such a solid citizen of. That when I his managers, Chris Capi and Lin Oliver Klein for billboard last year. Capi told me a story about how when he first met Luke five years ago in two thousand fifteen he had to convince luke to use facebook because Luke thought of facebook. As. Not You know. Cool. Anyway happy. Started a facebook group for Luke's fans. It's called the bootleggers and things pretty much exploded from there. So, when what you see is what you get came out last November. It debuted at number one. And it set a record for the biggest streaming first week for a country album ever. Seventy four million on demand audio streams, which is on top of the two point seven billion. Sorry. Let me say that again, two point seven, billion on demand streams that luke had racked up since he started releasing music in twenty fourteen. Okay. So Luke combs is a country superstar with a record setting digital approach. That's a little bit futuristic for Nashville, but his music itself is a throwback. His songs are built around solid narratives and super sharp word play. These are old school values and his songs are packed with details. There's the guy in a song called when it rains, it pours from his first album this one's for you and and and the the the scene goes from a fight with his girlfriend to a three week run of good luck that starts with him pulling into a shell on I sixty five there those details and winning one hundred bucks a scratch off ticket which rhymes with bought to twelve packs and a tank of gas with it. Or on what you see is what you get, there's a song called little bit helps which packs a lot of detail into just justice first line. This futons I crashed on in college well, it in our bed but at least it don't smell like you right there in twenty words get the break up. The Guy Moving out. He's moving backwards to the tiny slept on in college, but he's trying to take a step forward. To get some sadness some anger some lost some heartbreak and what I just said it out loud. I noticed the internal rhyme of futons and crashed on which fill me with a new level of respect for the craft of songwriting here. But in addition to being well written, most of the songs on what you see is what you get her pretty hard rocking and it's long been true that if you were one of the people sitting around wondering you've rock is dead you are not spending much time listening to country. You're going to see it why because country has been the new arena rock for more than a minute now? But. But what you see is what you get is some very big league southern rock again. Before. The pandemic forced him to postpone his tour Lucas scheduled to headline arenas this year and the dates included some stadium shows. As Luke and his Co writer, Jonathan, Singleton and his producer chip Matthews explained to me. They wrote songs like a beer never broke my heart because they needed some music big enough to fill those spaces. Loop talk with me about the cabin he rents where it will spend two weeks at a time writing songs and drinking beers, and it helps that there's a TV but there's no xbox. And he he also talked about how he was overseas in March he was scheduled to play the country to country festival brings country music to the UK into Berlin. and. He was out during night a celebration having a good time when he got a call saying, he had to get himself on a plane the very morning. Because the United States had issued a travel alert due to covert nineteen. Luke talked about his early days when you spending six months straight on the road and nothing but a van with his manager Capi driving and he also talked.

Here's the burbs yet. Another highbrow conversation on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast about the relative merits of burping by big. Thanks to Luke combs for a great conversation. You can catch him on his. What you see is what you get tour right now. In fact they just added some more dates through the end of the year. So you can check that out. See if he's coming to your town. I'm joined now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcasts. By both the producer of this fine podcast and the producer for Sunday today of the loop. Combs Interview Maggie Law. Hey Maggie so A quick note on the Red Solo Cup so He has Tamil Cup right. You GotTa Double Cup and the One underneath for mixing so you pour the Diet onto the Jack. Yup then you pull it out and you mix it in the other half say I did not know that I thought it was. Maybe for like it was too cold onstage or something like that learn new every day. I also love that. He's like you gotTa have diet. Yeah Jack because the pound calories just in case So you're a country fan. I am a huge am a country. Fan I went to school Nashville. Which is where I learned to be a country fan and I have to admit I didn't know a ton about Lou cones and still until you taught me about Louganis and I love his music. I really do right his album. What you see is what you get. Which as I said is also the name of the tour. It's one of those start to finish a great album and when you meet the guy and you hear his story you like them all the more. He's I feel like I mean he sort of has that you know not exactly overnight but like almost overnight success story and he's still so humble you can tell I love. He came and like his whole team was there because he was on. Snl like you said it was like such a big moment for him and everybody was in town and he just seemed so grateful for the team and support he's known on tour for thanking everybody in the arena like the people who are cleaning up after us that people who are working at the tickets like he is just so grateful for where he is and it is really reflected in his music too and he was shouting out people during the interview. Who's we should explain. They were his team. Basically his manager and the people who've been with them since the beginning and as you say goes out of his way to credit those people with his rise as well. I didn't realize actually until afterward when we shook hands. And we said thank you and they all Some of them his team came out and they said we were all in tears listening to that because I think they hadn't sat and start to finish his whole story. You're talking about like this kind of interview that you do is for somebody like that. He doesn't he hasn't done a lot of these for him to really like sit down and be like. Wow we're have I come in the last five years to look back on that Yeah it was so interesting. I think it speaks to his appeal is he was talking about. How Nashville is known as a ten year town? We have to figure out your thing. What's my sound? What's my luck he's like? I didn't have anything to figure out I knew my sound. I don't have a trucker hat in the fishing. Scher going for a look. I just hope people like my sounds and I think it's so nice to see that kind of authenticity rewarded in this massive way. Like he's been yeah and he is such a huge fan base like within the country world. And it's so interesting because he sort of built that before even moving to Nashville with like you were saying modern technology. He's just put himself up on the Internet with like six second vine clips and he built this huge following and people like thousands of people are now selling out arena. You know coming to his shows. it's just fascinating that he landed in. Nashville and sort of like already knew what he was doing. Yeah it's really fun for me to and probably use a producer. Just just catch somebody in this moment where he's made it in country music. He's beyond made it. He's seven number one singles setting all these records but now he's at that point where. Snl To me. I think and he said what the crossover moment now. All these other people are going to learn a second album debuted not just a number one on the country charts but on the billboard charts. So it's like he is like all he's basically on the precipice of being everybody will know him not just country country people in a different kind of name for a lot of people. Listen to podcasts. Who may not have known him coming in hopefully enjoy getting to know him and I think you'll like Music Maggie. Thank you very much and thanks all of you as well for tuning in this week.

"Thanks box little debbie limit and apartment by yourself a twenty four years old. That's what you're getting right. I had a beer one beer in the refrigerator. At one point. That was the only thing I think it's eleven grant and then I use that money to record my next three songs which to me was the logical steps three more songs and I liked one of those where she got the best of me which are re recorded the deluxe And that song came out and next thing I know I moved to Nashville in September. So I use that money to fund the move and like a security deposit. My apartment and I was getting checks. I mean not eleven thousand. I mean up until I put hurricane out I mean I was still making probably three thousand dollars a month. I mean just off of me not doing anything but John. I was just writing songs every day for seven or eight months and then I put I was down to like my last two hundred bucks because I'd spent the rest of my money to record the six songs which would end up being the first half of this one's for you right and so I get those six hundred recorded and my producer Scott Was like hey man. We got a master these songs and I'd never mastered my other so I did my little. You know redneck accounting of like well. This is how much it's GonNa cost because I did these three and these three so I'll just add that together. That's what it's GonNa cost and it. I mean it was pretty close to that and so I had that amount of money because I knew I was like man. If I don't get these songs out then like I'm GonNa be screwed because it was getting old enough to where it wasn't going to be enough to pay my rent every month. You know what I needed to put something else out to be able to keep writing and trying to get a publishing deal or trying to get whatever And so he comes to me and says well we need it was twelve hundred bucks two hundred dollars a song to master man. That's expensive you know and I said I got two hundred bucks so we already tracked all the all the six songs but I hadn't seen any of the vocals yet. I had just saying the tracking. Boko in there with the band went and cut the final vocal and so I called Scott. I've listened to all the songs and I said I said listen to this song. Hurricane is the only song that we could possibly use the vocal on and put out so I spent my last two hundred Bucks mastered that too. Yes bucks and I said I'll just put it out as a single instead of putting it out as an EP and so that's the only time I ever saying that song was on the track right mastered it put it out. Sold fifteen thousand copies the first week and then Kinda. The rest is history. I guess you know. Use THAT MONEY TO RECORD. You know master. The rest of the songs was pretty awesome. Man It was crazy. So how do you explain what happened with hurricane after it's released blows up? How did your life and career change off that song? When did you feel like we've got some here I don't know because a lot of things happened from that point on. I mean that was just the spark that lit the thing. There was a lot in between. I mean you know meeting. You might managers Camping Lynn. Lynn Sammy to independent record. Deal before I signed with Sony. She since you know partnered with Cabbie Oh my management stuff and I mean. That was a huge thing. I mean obviously mean copy and then capi introducing needle in. That was a huge thing. That was a massive deal because at that time it was just I was just making a good amount of money in that was it. There wasn't a publishing deal. There wasn't a manager there wasn't a booking agency. There wasn't anything else going on. And so I I did get a little book and do it at a smaller agency and they put me on a lot of really goods. Small shows like small opening gigs. I turned two hundred fifty bucks and I remember thinking about something like two hundred fifty bucks. I go play street me. Two hundred fifty bucks. Are you kidding me like but you don't realize like I miss like man? You don't make a lot of money when you start. Yeah unless you're you know you can make decent money playing bar gigs. And then you can easily get spoiled by that when you moved to Nashville and then all of a sudden you're down like ten bags from where you were playing gigs. I was making you know I mean some gigs. Megan Twenty five hundred bucks a night which is really good. You're paying the band and so you know my only walk with five hundred bucks for night's work I mean I was completely content with that noon. Something that I like to do so having to go okay. I remember I remember. My first show was coming up. I was panicked because I was literally. GonNa make two hundred fifty dollars and I had to renovate an jutted known a van and to pay the ban guys which I mean their minimum. GonNa be one hundred dollars a night rubber guy right. So you're talking. I'm in the whole out. Seven or eight hundred dollars just playing the show and I didn't have the money that and got the money from hurricane at that time and and that's really stressful spot. Because you're like I know I can do this but like how do you do it? Because I didn't have a record label going. Oh we'll we'll give you fifty thousand dollars and you can use and paige back when you're done can't walk into a bank and get a music loan me like credit at that point anyway so it wasn't really an option but I figured it out you know And it was it was is wild but there's so many things I mean. Once we started playing shows again I played for eight months probably at that time because my band back in North Carolina. They didn't come to Nashville with me. So I came by myself. Had To admit a guy and he'll put together. He still my band to this day. We're at songs together and That was huge putting the band together. It was big. You know getting that little book and deal and then on to my awesome book and you know that I have now was was huge. There were so many things you play the opry for the first time was a big step and obviously my deal with Sony and kind of I kind of didn't go on a traditional radio tour like most people do because things were going so fast already and we already booked Brantley tour. He booked me for that tour before I deal with Sony. Like he had just heard music and was like. I'm taking that guy like I don't and then Nashville. That doesn't happen a lot. Yeah you know it's usually like hey well this guy from here's asking you to take this guy you know you're it's a body yours that's a you know rights and he's got a deal here and so for him to just take me out you know without a deal or without Republican at the time and so it was. It was all these little things that just kind of so much luck involved too wasn't just wasn't just talon her songs or stage presence. I mean it's all those things compounded with these incredible instances of luck that half the lineup. So perfectly you know up to this point. They have which is which is awesome. I mentioned your first album. I went to number one stayed there for a year. Which is unbelievable crazy. What's that phone? Call like that email like when you first hear that it's gone number one the first time because you've done well on certain level and you don't know how it's GonNa go when no definitely yeah and it's number one. It was crazy man. You know because hurricane just went number one for the album came out and that was wild but things were so different for us like I feel like kind of Nashville so kind of a a little bit behind like what me and winning Capi were doing or what we thought we were doing and what I felt like I was living you. I would see you know friends or or guys that I'd written with our new. That had these like Hannah. Traditional major label deal or or this and uh thinking to myself like Manuel. That guys you know he's doing this thing and I'm over here. Selling you know two thousand tickets. You know what I mean like. Just a weird. Things didn't go in the order that they were supposed to go usually. It's like you get your deal. You know you they spend a couple of years to figure out your sound and I'd already figured out you know. I knew what the people that were coming to see me who they were and what they liked and what I like and what I wanted to play and that was just being myself. That was it you know. I'm lucky because that's a hard thing to do finding out what you WanNa do and how you want to say it and and what. You're what you're doing. So many people struggle with that for such a long time. And I think that's what it does take. Traditionally you know what they say. It's tenure town. A lot of that time is spent figuring out. What's my name? What's my place in the country? Music world you know my more a songwriter guy. Poppy I'm more falke Americana Guy My this my that you know. Luckily I had just found my thing and so that was an awesome phone call. You know 'cause we had recorded that album before I signed my deal with Sony You know I'd recorded the songs and then Lynn and she helped me record. I think I signed on February twenty eighth and I recorded album march. I took a day off from my birthday march second and finish album on. March third and then that was it and it didn't come out for that was March twenty sixteen and it didn't come out until June of two thousand seventeen so I just sat there on that album but it was all for the right reasons. I'll give a lot of credit again as I'm like. Get it out. Get it out right now. People here now you know and she helped me understand a lot of things that I wasn't privy to you know because I've been telling her like Oh if we get a deal like we're not putting hurricane to radio that's been out for a year and she goes. Yeah you've got fifty thousand names on it but like like fifty million people listen to country radio every week and I'm like Oh yes nobody's really. I guess you know what I mean but I didn't know your world you. I'm like dude. My fans are over it. Yeah it's Never GonNa be hit song because they don't they've already heard it. They're not gonna hear it you know. And and she was like. There's so many people that haven't heard it at all. Y. You know if you've gotten in front of seventy five thousand people at fifty thousand people. I can't imagine if you got in front of seventy five million people. You know what I mean so it was kind of wild and and so it was always like Lynnwood set a release date and we talk about stuff and that date get closer and then she would have to talk me off the ledge of like. Hey we're going to have to push it another two months you know and I was like how things never coming out. You know what I mean like recorded this thing fifty years ago but it was the right decision you know and I think having those people in your corner to is the huge thing like having people you can trust having people that you connect with people that you get along with people that you care about you know. I wouldn't discount that in the process at all you know. I think sometimes it can get a little machine you know and for us. It's always been you know no matter. How many private planes are on or you know what country were flying to. I mean me and lending cap. He can sit down and talk about anything. You know what I mean. That's something that I really value. A lot is just you know the as much as they've helped me you know and and as much trust as as they've put in me and trust and I've put in them you know it's just a I think it's a super rare thing and I think if you looked at a lot of people who have a really long career. There's probably a lot of that going on. The team is probably been together for quite a long time. You know from the crew guys all the way up to the top people you know I think loyalty and and things of that nature are Super Important. Lucky to have that fine good people and hold them close. Yeah definitely if you'd be like being around you work with my best friends in the world though. It doesn't better than working with your best friends. You know what I mean. Yeah so it's that's fun too as quickly as all this has happened. What does your family think about this? Those people listen to you saying Vince. Gill who gave guitar you the closet. Great what anything I mean my parents..

"luke combs" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

"Feet every Thursday to subscribe search into America. Where you're listening right now. Welcome back to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast now. More of my conversation with Luke combs so the guitar came later. Yeah people who know you including your family's in the voice was always there when you're a little kid singing Vince Gill Song. Where did that come from that natural gift? Yeah I mean I always tell people it's you I was give this this analogy to this. Like people always asking him. Oh how do I sing like you? Or how do I do this or how I do that and I think it's it's obviously a lot of work and a lot of practice. But it's there's a lot of natural ability. You know made how you be taller. You can't how do you be here? You could try to be the best. You could go get some coach right now. He teach you how to sprint. And you can do it for five years and you could get as fast as could possibly get and there's so many people who don't even have to try and just faster than you. It's just not your thing you know what I mean. It doesn't mean you can't get better at it but there's just like you said it's being tall. It's how do you be some tall? You just are some foot tall and I think there was a lot of that with me not just always saying. I just always liked it always. I didn't really know any good at it until like ninth grade. Probably I just knew I liked it a lot of people like to when I did it. That was it. That was the thing it was like. Whoa I'm doing this. I'm happy and I can tell when I do that. Other people are happy. So it's it's simple math. I guess to me at that point. Why would I not want to make other people happy? Why would I wanNA make myself happy? So that's an easy. It's an easy thing to have to wake up every day. So when you're at Appalachian State when you get to College. You finally kind of put the two together the voice and the guitar. Yeah it's town. Tavern is at the bar bouncer. Eventually start playing gigs. They're playing there so I was living upstairs right. I lived above the bar literally not like literally lived above the bar in between So there was like a imagine a little three super tiny strip mall domino's pizza tanning salon. The bar staircase at went up by the I lived in between the Tanning Salon. And the domino's I would walk downstairs work. My job as a bouncer also worked at an IZOD STORE. Fulton shirts and stuff but ran checking you asking people if they sure you don't want any socks which I hate by the way. Don't ever do that to say that sounds very unnatural very. It's not your is odd. Probably like if you picked two things if he picked antonyms Lou combs that is odd would probably be pretty far off not a perfect fit. No but it was yeah went in and I actually asked my boss if I could play there. I was like hey can I play show here? He's like no because we can't have music because everybody lives upstairs and they and I was like wow I live upstairs and I know everyone that lives upstairs. I guarantee we would all be down here. And I know the towns on clothes and the domino's guys aren't going to know what's going on anyways as we know what they're doing in the back of dominance so so he he still was like why can't I can't do it so in my mind. I was like I played rugby and college. We hung out at a bar. That was kind of right down the street from there and And so I asked that guy if I could play there and I say he was like yeah. Do it absolutely wildcard. He's like yeah. Just put it on the counter. That was it. That's how I booked the show. He was just like just pick a day. It was a counter on the wall in the restaurant. And he's like just write it in and I'm like there's not any real red tape. There's no like how do we he's got what you'll figure it out so I just picked today on there. I can't remember the exact. I still have the first dollar ever made in hanging up in my house but I charge the dollar ticket. I made two hundred bucks. Two hundred people came to see my first show ever which I didn't realize was awesome at that point I was then I put a lot of after that were five feet and so then I went back to work and I told my boss that I played a show at the born on the street and I said I had two hundred people there on Wednesday night. I said so I can either do that or I can play here and so I played there every night every week for the rest of my time there. That was kind of one of three shows. I would play weekly in Boone and then on the weekends. We would go trying to go to Charlotte or Winston Salem or you know Atlanta like northern Atlanta anywhere close mountain city Tennessee Johnson city which slowly when out and then it kind of come time to move to the Asheville you know because I was like well I can. I can do this forever and make it decent enough living a why not try to just do all the way. You came pretty close to finishing school like a semester away. What was the calculation? Like at this moment. It's time to go to Nashville. If I want to do this for real well I I mean I hated school. That helps me also probably failing out we could pull of records on that. I Love I love. I love getting the I love the alumni letters in the mail that you do now. 'cause somehow those have wound up at my place like. Hail how you share your love it here don't you which I do actually The fundraisers found your phone phone razors figured out In bed for sure but I you know that was the thing I honestly struggled with a long time because I did want to graduate. I just don't know honestly if I could have you know I don't think it was. Maybe I'm done for saying this but I don't think I wasn't smart enough graduate. I just don't think I was committed. Yeah you know Just there's nothing about it that made me want be like man. I just gotTa Get up and go to science class today right like nothing about me. Wanted to go to math or science. You know what I mean like. I was just more concerned with you. Know Drinking and playing rugby and saying in I mean those were just I was like man. This is all stuff that I WANNA do. Obviously you can't drink for a living so that was off the list and then You know I was reading quickly Rosh. I couldn't play rugby and there's really only one choice had left one thing And so I was like man because I was at the point. I mean in two thousand fourteen when I moved. That was twenty four. Yeah and so it was like way past in college. At this point I kind of like dropped out slash failed out whatever it is Like probably you're probably twenty two is when I was like I'm done with it like I'm just going to play shows and trying to make money doing that anyway that I can. I supported myself for a few years and You were really when you up to Nashville. Though you were really savvy with Social Media and technology because I imagine it's the old story you know moved Music City with a guitar and a Dream. Hard thing to do. Then what okay we live here. We got an apartment that you use facebook and fine mining. Yes the big thing that I started on And you knew that that could serve amplify your sound. Couldn't do for yourself just getting out there. You know what I mean. You have this traditional method where it's like okay. Well how do you want people to hear your songs? You've find somebody. Hopefully that will give you a record deal or somebody of influence that. Life's you enough to be willing up. Distribute you to those channels. You know I was talking about it with my buddy John in years earlier today like the Internet has revolutionized that thing. Where now you have the ability to take it to people on your own and vine was really one of the first things that ever take talk. Now that's the big thing it's the same thing as vine by the way it is different name so you just go on there and you put up whatever you want and I would just sing little six second covers of stuff and I gained a following and the I ended up Lincoln up with some other guys. They kind of did the same thing as me. And they helped me out a ton and honestly those guys were some of the guys that helped me like. Hey man like you need to like take this vine thing you're going on vine and like now you need to make sure you're getting instagram ballers. I wasn't the guy that I wasn't the genius behind all that you love to take credit for that but those guys were. They had a lot more followers than me online. At that time someone like a million. I think just insane amounts of hours but I had like seventy eight thousand which was enough to sell my songs right because then I use that platform to when I put my first couple songs out on my own. I was like. Hey go by the check them out. You know kind of thing and I remember our making probably a couple hundred dollars a week probably four or five main on a good week. Six hundred dollars a week in which for twenty four year old without a degree. Sure he's just playing music. Music is pretty awesome. You know a recorded these three songs. I put them out and I remember. I was sitting in my neighbor's apartment above the bar. Still of the mother more so distributed in one. This service called tune core and So what happened was they. Would you put your songs out? And then you get paid like a senior like a monthly statement you know and so I guess they make you wait two months for before your first one. So you're kind of catching up. Whatever it is. I don't know why they do that but I was. I remember sitting there and I knew it was getting close because it was march. It's my birthday and my birthday is March second. Just been my birthday and I put the songs out in January of two thousand fourteen And I remember sitting on my friend's couch and I was like man. Be Cool to get that check. You know what I mean like a couple of hundred bucks be awesome. I remember opening my thing and it was like eleven thousand dollars in there and I was like Holy Spirit immediately. What can I get this money? Right Allie nothing in adult would purchase went and got an xbox. I remember that we did absolutely because I didn't have the one. I love your priorities by the way..

"One of us. He's a real guy who just happens to have a great voice and knows how to play the guitar. And we'll there Ryan this people are. And what would you say? Is The loop combs thing? What's the secret sauce? That's made you so success. I mean I think probably you're pretty close to with those things I think maybe it's just. I think the special thing is. There's nothing special you know like. There's no gimmick there's no there's a in my opinion it's like just like men. I could change my oil or be the plumber or whatever but like always had this kind of like underdog mentality you know. When I moved to town it was is pretty tough to even get a meeting. Let alone get a follow up meeting or call back or anything for a while there and then I get it man. You know what I mean when you know if you have five paintings next to each other and one of them's not very good. Look and you're GONNA buy that one until a bunch of people coming in and go. I won't that one. You know what I mean. And that's what had to happen but I had to. My thing was always. I wasn't gonNA wind when he buddy with you know my looks or you know my clothing or but I never wanted to do that. I wanted to while people with my voice and my songs In my personality and that takes a little bit of work you have to go out and get in front of people and play shows and take any giving anybody will give you an anytime play anywhere anyplace and we did that for the last five years. I guess it doesn't sound like a long time but I was doing that in college too. I mean I couldn't play guitar eight years ago. It's amazing you know and I was just. I just knew once I picked guitar. I've been singing forever and it was just once I picked it up. I was like Oh like this is what I'm supposed to be doing because people will like this. You know people always ask me all my buddies that new I could sing. Always be like Oh man. Y'All seeing for these people are always come up at parties and call or something and you know I believed in myself that I was pretty good But once I picked guitar up I was like nobody wants to hear anybody saying when they're not playing an instrument or if there's not accompaniment you know right and even an Capella Group is. You're pretending to have restaurants around right. It's kind of weird to just saying you know what I mean so it was just a way for me to. I mean it was kind of honestly board at borne out of like I was living at home. I was twenty one and all my best friends from high school. There's probably eight or nine of us that are still really close and that was the summer where everybody stayed in their college town for the first time but I was the one guy that moved back to Asheville from college to work job for the summer so I didn't have any friends in town so I'd like nothing living with my parents house working job at a go kart place in Nashville where I worked at high school and all the kids that work there it was fifteen or sixteen or whatever it is and so it was like obviously. I'm not hanging out with him so just go to work and go home and I was kind of sitting here. Manno have anything to do really you know. My parents had bought me guitar in seventh grade that I never played guitar lesson. The never does anything after that When I was how old are you? How are you in seventh grade? I can tell you I have a daughter. Twelve twelve twelve. Yes seventh grade. Thank you for that but no so I was twelve and it was one of those things really. I felt like my parents wanted me to do it so I didn't WanNa do it because I was twelve and I was like Oh. My parents wanted to do that stupid. Then you know what I mean. I wish I wish I would have now but lacked same. Guitar was in my 'cause when I was twenty one years old and my parents house and I went in there. I was sitting outside Salkin. Kinda one days like Pam's board like I don't think I worked that day or something and my mom was like well. You Know Kenny Chesney. He didn't learn guitar until he was twenty. One and how was twenty one at the time and I was like. Oh she's good. That guy can do and then I can do it. You know and so I went and got that guitar and I played Pretty Much Thomas Guitar that summer and the next summer I went to Charlotte and live with my grandmother could play enough to always knew. I could sing good enough to where nobody would notice that. I was terrible guitar player. You know like if I just played a couple of cords and saving get them to focus on this thing not this thing you know what I mean and so I went and did played every open mic night in the world that's ever been done and every place that's ever let someone plug Qatar into. I would go there and play night just kind of kept going. It was never like I never sat down one day. It was like you know what I'm going to be the next country star like it was just always like there was almost like this little trail of candy and it was like pick that one up. Oh well the next step is obviously I? Then it would just these real like micro goals of like play. The next chord was like a goal. I can learn a g chord than I can learn secord right and then that became if I can play an open. Mic night will then could. I broke my own concert. Well if I can play an hour two hours three hours can I write my own songs? Step playing somebody else's. Can I write enough songs to record them and put them out and can move to Nashville? You know what I mean like. The goals were always bigger. But they didn't seem bigger because I was just right on heels of them the whole time. It didn't start out going from piggybacking on. Okay how do I become Garth Brooks? Nothing works like that and I think I always. Kinda felt that things work like that until I just found something that I really liked and it was just just logical stems. It was never like a big plan or yeah it was just. I was good this thing and I did that so I was like well. What's the next thing? How can I improve on this thing? I just did. Hey guys thanks for listening to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast..

Spent fifty five zero weeks at number one on the country chart which tied a record held by Shania Twain he also spun off seven consecutive number one singles. He played. Snl A few weeks ago if you don't know him. I think you're GONNA love him. His whole deal is he's an every man he grew up in North Carolina. He on stage. He's not the guy who has backup dancers. There are a lot of production. He wears a fishing shirt and a trucker hat and literally holds a Red Solo Cup while he sings his songs. If he's got to play the guitar he's got a special Little Red Solo Cup. Mike Stan that he likes to use to hold his drink which I can report to you and you will hear later in our interview. Is Jack in Diet Baby? 'cause YOU GOTTA. Watch the pounds when you're slam Jack Daniels during your shows so we got together a few weeks ago on the eve of his. Snl performance which was a huge crossover moment for Miami. Obviously for the last couple of years has been dominating the country music world he played. Snl In an entire new audience got to know him. Believe it or not look only picked up guitar eight years ago. He was a singer from the time he was a young kid but never played guitar until he was home from college. You went to Appalachian State in North Carolina. He was home and kind of bored and picked up a guitar and started playing. Taught himself started playing local gigs when he got back to college and really used technology different Music APPS and sites that helped him push out his music and gain an audience which now obviously is in the millions and millions so we got together for our conversation here in New York City at a barbecue place called hill country. Good food good music. We're down in the basement. Where they do their live shows. I think every night and Naturally you can see the visual or sitting across from each other in front of the stage with Red Solo Cups. He with Jack and Diet. I think that night I'm going to bet that mine was a makers with splash. Ginger Ale.

You know you don't get to do like I mean even and I haven't been. I'm not going to pretend like I've been doing this for twenty years but we've done a lot in the last couple of years and there's not a lot I that happened. You hear that the people say that you know.

"All right. Welcome to episode to twenty-six lacomb likewise been home in a while so I'm not. I got a text from me like an hour to get here. Yeah Yeah it's a it's a decent way out you finish working out and I was like Oh looks looks to be here like saws throwing on clothes. You're like he's going to be hearing launderers. Wet Towel off all the way and then I didn't realize you live so far away. Yeah Yeah when did that happen for you. We actually able to buy some landing. It was probably just about a year ago. So I've been in my house just over a year now so is it feels like home it does. It does now for sure I definitely. Didn't we move there. You know because it was you know so far from town and our friends ends you know still live in town and it's just a it took a little bit of getting used to man but I wouldn't wanna be anywhere else now. Isn't it furniture the worst. Yes because you just don't expect expect it to be that expensive. Not only that but you think that like okay. Well if I'M GONNA spend X. amount on this couch which I think is an insane amount. There should just be one. That's there like you have one in the store and it's GonNa take you six months to get one to my house like I just don't understand a specially for a nice one right. You'd think they could move to the next right. You would think they would just be like. Oh let's just make this tomorrow. The things that I buy that are are frustrating to me our furniture and again I live in a pretty nice house now and but to fill it up with crap. I'm leaving in most of my rooms. It's Solano nope not at all. I don't WanNA leave empty because I'm ocd about that stuff and then they're like this is how much a bad costs you can. Refrigerators frigerator suck. frigerator are mine just broke recently which was great car tires. It's something else that you go. You gotTa have good ones. You get what you pay for. I've got a vehicle that's getting. I'm not there now. Giving me a new vehicle. It's broken like four times since I've had it Geeta lemon like women law. That's the thing right where they just like. Okay well we're just GONNA take the loss and just give you a new one so the car that you bought rubber broken four times. Yeah I mean it works but it's just kind of user error. No it's not user air. No it's it's great and it's just every time time it always happens right when I get right when I get home from like a long period of not being here and I haven't been able to drive live and then I get in it like at the airport and then it it breaks on the way home like you just trying to get home right by. TV does that enough. Like I'm ready to get home. I've been out the only time I need to use it. It didn't work and watch the office and just chilling then. It doesn't connect so I don't want them to fix it anymore just just either. Semi new owner argue Mary Fund or something. So Oh you did the last couple of New York doing doing sem love what was that like for you. Get in the call and I'm not sure how that call work. Do you go. I'd I'd like to be on. SNL think about us or not really you know it was like it was super last minute and it always is. I think it's like because they booked the hosts I mean I'm not certain but I feel like they book the hosts three weeks out and then the musical act. I mean it was like a week and a half so oh you didn't know for three or four months that you were going to be. SNL Yeah no no. It was like I got called in it was like. Hey we're doing this. Alison Week half and I was like okay so we had torsos scheduled like we rented out the space and all the crews. They're setting everything up. The ban guys had already rehearsed a couple of days and then they had to open. Go to New York like super last minute. That's pretty cool. Though right it was awesome and it was really awesome. It was it was definitely the coolest coolest list like filming thing experience that I've had what's it like walking into that space for the first time because you rehearse pre The day before or a couple of days so we went in. I mean two or three days. We were in New York for four days. And I can't imagine how. Jj was there heaps probably there for at least a week. Maybe maybe even the writing meetings he was in all the right meetings and changing the skits and everything like that so it was really cool because I grew up watching US L. With my dad and and so it was really neat. It was very surreal to be there in like C set so a conic you know and is awesome in You know definitely do it again. Do you do the first. Because the first show they we do as full and then they'll end up moving and cutting sketches a bit and then they just go again and do it again live. Yes when you do the first one to do the same two songs running just as you were going to run and how did you feel after basically the super dress rehearsal talk really good about it. I mean you know Lauren came in and was like. Hey you're holding the Mike too high I on the first song cameras. Yeah and you can't because normally I'm holding up here and he's like why can't see your face if you're holding up here so you got to just calm. But that was the only we note that he had but other than that it was great. Who did you ask to take pictures with? I didn't really ask. I'm not a big like I'm not a big like take the picture backstage guy you know unless it happens naturally Obviously me and JJ got a picture. But I mean obviously I wanted to picture with Lorne because I've been a fan of his for a long time and But that was it you know I. I've never been into like unless it's a natural thing that happens. You know. I'm not a big like pop in the dressing room and be like what's You know I mean I don't mind that at all. I actually love when people do that but sometimes I just feel uncomfortable about it. You know because you don't really know I didn't know. Jj Who's going to be like Super Nice Awesome Guy. You Know I. I mean I've never met him so he might have been like. Who's this Guy Michaels? Like he was awesome. He was Super Nice. He's definitely a boss. You can definitely tell. He runs the show But he was he was very nice. Man Very no one will Just had some great stories you know and then. Jj Eh you know. Obviously he's mass of my experience the NFL players as they look big on TV. But then when you meet them you're like Oh my God. They're so big. It was like that to me yes. They're so much bigger they look big on TV but everyone on TV's big on the Games you know so you don't really like if there's the guy that looks bigger than the rest of the guys that guy's really big and so sent him to Jj it was. It was definitely weird. I'm not small guy but he was just massive Tali six foot so when you did the promos watching some of those promos. Because that's those are the iconic thing where they have one of the cast members the host and the musical art MHM like as far as what I was able to see. That was one of the coolest things I got to see you do because I've just seen so many people do that every year.

"Welcome to episode to seventeen with Ed. A Guy I really like and been a big fan of yours. Jody gooding here. Yeah good to see all thank you you as well you know I was looking. I know most of the stuff about you like I've been a fan before we've been able to be friends. I was just a massive Asif Fan of you growing up and so as I kind of one of the deep dive. 'cause I always like to find out. What do I not know about people coming over to the house? Right listen to this. I don't know if even knew that. Go on this day. December Sixteenth Nineteen Ninety Four. You had the number one song on the Billboard Country Charles Pickup Man. It was your longest lasting number one having spent four weeks at number one from December ninety four to January ninety five. Did you know that was today. No I didn't notice today. I knew the the rest of that. I didn't realize the data. That's pretty cool on this day. Number war yeah so for example Luke. Combs just spent three weeks at number one And that's a long the last three weeks number one especially today really big deal when you have a song this one for four weeks in in Nineteen ninety-four. What's the vibe that well I mean? It was unusual because back then you know they put out a lot more songs that the frequency of you put forth four four or five times a year and now you might have one son stays on the charts. Lingering there at some point For almost a year you know so So that was kind of weird weird part. We had to wait to see what how long it was going to stay number one before we could put another record. So did you feel like that song was going to be a number one song. I knew it from the institute after I heard it really I really do. Yeah I don't know why just something about it just you know. Have you been able to name and nail boasted most of your big songs for the first time you heard them. Yeah pretty much There was a couple that it didn't Like John Deere Green. I hated one. I heard it real. Why why well because the demo now this is a long saga but it but when I first heard it it was done by the rider writer named Dennis Linde and he had a very eclectic sound voice and he did all his own demos at his house so it had a Jew's harp planning ardine are Ernie Ernie and I was like what the heck is that you know in my producer so we'll just ignore the demo part I I'd have to add right now? That is subsequently Loved all Denison. Lindy's demos they were so cool after he got kind of figured out what was what was happening. You know my producer said listen to the words and and and I was like man. I just don't like it at all. He goes. Well I think this hit and I said well we can try you know go in the studio cut it and if it doesn't work out then we scrap grab you know so. Luckily it worked
