Luke Combs assisted an active-duty military member with a request after being deployed.
The humble country superstar is best known for smash hit songs like “Beautiful Crazy,” “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” “Better Together,” “Forever After All” and more, however he is also known for being a good samaritan. He recently paid for the funerals of three concertgoers who died at Faster Horses Festival, fulfilled a North Carolina teacher’s Amazon wish list for her 2021 school year, has donated to dozens of charitable organizations and much more.
On Tuesday (Aug. 31), the “South On Ya” singer added to his list of philanthropic acts, this time by helping an active-duty military member who will miss his concert as he recently got deployed.
A member of the United States Air Force named Cameron Bouie recently tagged Combs in a post on Twitter and the chart-topping hitmaker couldn’t help but respond 19-minutes after he seen the tweet. In the tweet, the active service member explained that he was no longer able to attend Combs’ show in North Carolina, which he has already brought tickets for as he has been deployed to New Jersey to assist with Afghanistan refugees.
“I bought tickets to your concert in North Carolina for the Sept. 11 show and I may miss your show,” Bouie’s tweet to the country superstar read. “I’m a huge fan of your music and love every song you’ve released. I was wondering if you could help me out to attend a future show when I leave NJ. I have proof of my ticket, and I tried to refund my ticket or sell it, but I’m getting no luck.”
We’ll get you taken care of brother. Thank you for your service. Send me a DM https://t.co/AjVNujrY4y

Within minutes, Combs responded, “We’ll get you taken care of brother. Thank you for your service. Send me a DM.”
Additionally, Combs has previously teased a heartfelt new song called “Evermine,” which is written in the form of an emotional letter to a soldier’s wife while he’s deployed. The track was co-written by Combs alongside Charlie Worsham and Hailey Whitters.
“I always find you’re the wind that whispers through the pines, blooming the rose, green on the vines, until we meet again, my love sincerely signed, i’m ever yours, you’re ever mine,” Combs sings in the chorus.
The North Carolina native previously gave back to those serving our country via his partnership with Ford, supporting Guitars 4 Vets, an organization that helps veterans cope with PTSD throughout the healing power of music. Through Ford’s Proud To Honor program, which is the military initiative by Ford Motor Company to raise awareness and strengthen existing programs and create even more meaningful connection with our service members, Combs donated $25,000 worth of guitars at the 55th annual ACM Awards.
“Working with Combs and Guitars 4 Vets is a great way to continue helping veterans as part of our Proud to Honor initiative,” Ford’s VP for U.S. Marketing, Mark LaNeve, previously shared.
