Luke Combs said it was “such an honor” to meet fellow country superstar Shania Twain during a recent festival in Napa Valley, California.
On Monday (May 30), the “Any Man Of Mine” singer and five-time GRAMMY winner took to social media to share two photos from her fun day at BottleRock Napa Valley at the Napa Valley Expo, which took place one day prior on Sunday (May 29).
Not only did the best-selling female artist in country music history get to witness the reigning CMA Entertainer Of Year’s set, but she also got to grab a photo with him earlier in the day.
“Awesome to see @lukecombs rocking it at @bottlerocknapa 🔥” Twain wrote on Instagram. “Good music, good people – good weekend!!”
The photo, taken backstage at BottleRock Napa Valley, features Combs, wearing his signature Columbia PFG and Blue Otter Polarized hat, with his arm wrapped around Twain, who is seen wearing blue jeans, a white shirt and a black hat that reads ICON.
Combs commented on Twain’s Instagram post, gushing that it was “such an honor” to meet and hangout with country hitmaker. The North Carolina later reposted Twain’s Instagram post in his Instagram stories and said “Hanging with a LEGEND at @bottlerocknapa @shaniatwain.”
The photo sent fans into a frenzy on social media as they begged the country superstars to join forces for a duet.
“A DUET IS NEEDED !!!!!!!! Please,” one fan wrote, while another added, “Collab soon pls 👀.”

Combs and Twain represent two of only three country artists that have albums (Combs’ This One’s For You and Twain’s Come On Over) that spent 50 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Morgan Wallen is the only other country artist to achieve this feat with his sophomore project, Dangerous: The Double Album, which spent over 61 weeks on the chart.

Arriving on June 24 via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville, Growin’ Up 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. The project will also feature one collaboration, a duet with country superstar Miranda Lambert.
Additionally, Combs will soon share another track from the long-awaited project, “The Kind Of Love We Make,” on June 17.
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.
Combs is also expecting his first child with wife Nicole Hocking Combs in the coming weeks.
