The country superstar will join forces once again with country legends Brooks & Dunn for a star-studded performance, this time of “1, 2 Many.” The trio previously performed together during CMT Crossroads in 2019.
“For me it’s like a total dream come true every time I’m with these guys at all so I mean it’s really awesome. I’m thankful that they are here to do it with me and I’m gonna have fun, for sure,” Combs said.
“Luke with all of his humility is on fire right now, In case you haven’t noticed and we did get a little prelim crossroads performance so we know it’s gonna be fun, just looking forward to it. His music is not unlike ours, so we’re not gonna try too hard, we’re just going to go out there and sling it I think,” Brooks added.
“You know what’s funny, my daughter was playing Luke Combs stuff from YouTube before he got a record deal and coming back to my house she’d be like listen to this guy and we were listening and now were like hey he’s opening the show, no we’re opening the show,” Dunn said.
“1, 2 Many” appears on Combs’ album, What You See Is What You Get.
