Luke Combs says his Grammys duet with Tracy Chapman was “a defining moment of my career”.
The pair teamed up for a stunning performance of Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’ and Luke, 33, admitted to being “in awe” of Tracy, 59, and the influence her music has had on the world.
He wrote on Instagram: “When it comes to the performance it’s still hard to process how amazing it really was to be up there on that stage. No doubt a defining moment of my career. Tracy, I want to send my sincerest thanks to you for allowing me to be a part of your moment. Thank you for the impact you have had on my musical journey, and the musical journeys of countless other singers, songwriters, musicians, and fans alike. I hope you felt how much you mean to the world that night. We were all in awe of you up there and I was just the guy lucky enough to have the best seat in the house.”
Luke also praised his wife Nicole Hocking, who he married in 2020, for always supporting him.
He wrote: “What an unreal Grammy week to say the least. There were so many laughs, tears, hugs, and cheers that it almost doesn’t seem real. From the hotel hangs and rehearsals, to the dinners and post show pizza, the vibes were HIGH. I want to thank my whole team for working tirelessly to make this happen and my wife for always being by my side, I love you.”
