The country superstars joined forces for an epic cover of David Lee Murphy’s hit “Dust On The Bottle” during Combs’ first-ever headlining Stadium show on Saturday, May 21 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.
“Dust On The Bottle” is a track solely penned by David Lee Murphy and was released as the fourth single from Murphy’s album, Out With A Bang. The song went on to become Murphy’s first No. 1 hit and remained his only No. 1 until 2018 when his song “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” topped the charts.
Combs and Johnson shared a hug before the “‘Til You Can’t” singer exited the stage and the North Carolina native went on to perform his chart-topping hit, “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”

Luke Combs & Cody Johnson Shared The Stage For A Duet In Earlier This Month At Stagecoach
Combs and Johnson recently shared the stage at Stagecoach on May 1 in California for an epic collaboration of a another ’90s hit, 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.
At the time, Combs dubbed Johnson as “the baddest dude in country music” as he exited the stage following their show-stopping performance of the iconic country tune.
After earning his first-ever No. 1 hit at Country radio with “‘Til You Can’t,” Cody Johnson revealed that his new single being sent to country radio is “Human,” which will impact the airwaves on June 6.
Produced by Trent Willmon and co-written by Tony Lane and Travis Meadows, “Human” is the title track to the Texas native’s latest album. The lyrics detail the daily struggles of life, acknowledging that no one is perfect and everyone is just trying to do their best.
“All the headlights / All the midnights / Chasing all that empty, still ain’t got it right / All the crazy / All the gypsy / Well I guess all I’m sayin’ is forgive me / If I don’t know what I’m doing / I’m still learnin’ to be human,” Johnson sings on the chorus.
Johnson, who recently shared nearly two dozen new tour dates, will serve as direct support on Combs Stadium Tour dates through July 30. The trek, which features support from Zach Bryan and Morgan Wade, will make stops in Seattle, Washington at Lumen Field on June 4 and Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on July 30.
Meanwhile, Combs, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, is gearing up to release his third studio album, Growin’ Up, and will soon embark on a massive headlining tour later this year.
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.
