In the midst of his headlining set on the Mane Stage, the country superstar shocked the massive crowd in Indio, California, with a special duet alongside fellow Mane Stage performer, “‘Til You Can’t” singer Cody Johnson.
Combs dubbed Johnson as “the baddest dude in country” as he exited the stage after joining Combs an epic duet of Brooks & Dunn’s “Brand New Man,” a song co-written by Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn alongside Don Cook. The tune was first released in June 1991 as Brooks & Dunn’s debut single and went on to become the country duo’s first No. 1 hit. Later, in 2019, Brooks & Dunn re-recorded the tune with Luke Combs for their star-studded Reboot album.
Combs and Johnson teamed up for a rowdy rendition of the classic country hit hours after Johnson delivered an electrifying set earlier in the day on the same stage.
The performance prompted a massive sing-along with the capacity crowd.
Watch their epic duet below.
Johnson will also join Combs on his sold-out Stadium tour this summer. The trek, which features support from Zach Bryan and Morgan Wade, kicks off on May 21 in Denver, Colorado at Empower Field and makes stops in Seattle, Washington at Lumen Field on June 4 and Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on July 30.
Before hitting the road with Johnson, Combs will embark on his headlining Middle Of Somewhere tour with direct support from Jordan Davis. The trek, which kicks off on September 2 in Bangor, ME, will also feature special guests Morgan Wade and Lainey Wilson on select dates.
Arriving on June 24 via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville, the project will feature 12 tracks, including his recently released “Tomorrow Me” as well as “Doin’ This,” and was produced by Combs alongside Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton.
Growin’ Up is the follow-up to his chart-topping, 2x Platinum 2019 album, What You See Is What You Get, and the 2020 deluxe edition of that dubbed, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get.
Additionally, Combs is expecting his first child with wife Nicole Hocking Combs in the coming weeks.
Johnson recently celebrated a multi-week chart-topper with his massive hit, “‘Til You Can’t.” The tune, which currently sits in the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart for a third consecutive week, has been sitting in the Top 3 for over a month.
