Luke Combs has a forever fan in his wife, Nicole Combs (née Hocking) — and it’s been documented in the country artist’s songs.
The “Beer Never Broke My Heart” crooner and Nicole became friends through their mutual acquaintances shortly after she moved to Nashville in 2014. Two years later, the relationship changed when the pair ran into each other at a songwriters’ festival in Florida.
“I didn’t have anything going on when we met,” Luke recalled during a March 2020 joint appearance on the “Couple Things With Shawn Johnson and Andrew East” podcast. “I didn’t have a record deal or a publishing deal or anything.”
Nicole, who was working for BMI at the event, remembered making the first move.
“I was leaving a songwriters’ round and he was walking up late to it, and I was just like, ‘Hey, come hang out with us, why are you by yourself?’” she explained.
Nicole has since been the inspiration behind many of Luke’s tracks, including “Better Together” and “Nothing Like You.”
Two years after their August 2020 nuptials, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together. Their son, Tex, arrived in June 2022, just in time for Father’s Day. Their family continued to grow in August 2023 with the birth of their second child, Beau.
