Rising Star Luke Combs He is kicking an old habit to the sidewalk thanks to his girlfriend. The country's creator of success tells Taste of Country that he finally gave up chewing tobacco with a little loving coercion.
"I'm trying to stop submerging, well, actually, I've left it," says Combs. "It was because of my girlfriend, she hated that I submerged and you know it was time, it's time to kick it."
Instead, the combs were turned into pills to help wean him from the old go. "I'm shaking these pills," says Peine. "There's a small plug there, they work, but they do not know very well."
Combs says the decision to stop submerging was also a career, and that the habit can negatively affect her singer's voice. "I always lied and I said:" Oh, it's okay, you know, "he says. "But really the worst thing in the world for your voice is any kind of acid reflux, a kind of heartburn, obviously, like a lot of fat anyway, and then I submerged, so that's what kills your voice more than anything "
Given the option between leaving certain foods and leaving the sauce, he says that "the choice was obvious." But not necessarily easy. "I miss it every day, but I'm getting better," says Combs.
It's a busy week for Combs, who hopes to take home at least one of his two nominations on Wednesday night (November 14) CMA Awards. Combs won nominations for New Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. It is also programmed to perform during the ceremony
It has been an exceptional year for the new artist, who scored two additional No. 1 singles in 2018, which raised his career to four. Not bad for an artist who is still in the deluxe version of his first album, and a good sign, considering that he never had an alternative plan.
"I do not know what I would be really doing [if it weren’t for music], "Combs admits." I guess there was never a plan B. I do not think that's smart, but anyone who gets to this point, there's really no plan B. For me that was not a problem. option. I would probably be working on a job I hate, to be honest. "
Combs credits his fellow singer Brantley gilbert with helping him get a big boost early in his career. "He called me and asked me to be on tour before Hurricane was on the radio," says Combs. "He took a risk with us very early, we really started to take a good step on the tour, taking that opportunity with us was a really big moment."
Combs is expecting another great moment on Wednesday, when he has the chance to take home his first grand prize as a country singer. The 52nd annual CMA Awards will be held on Wednesday, November 14 at 8 p.m. ET by ABC.
