NOMINATED FOR THREE AWARDS AT TONIGHT’S CMA AWARDS: ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR, MALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR AND ALBUM OF THE YEAR
November 9, 2022 — Luke Combs won Song of the Year at last night’s 2022 BMI Awards for his #1 single, “Forever After All.” Written by Combs, Drew Parker and Rob Williford, the track was BMI’s most performed country song this past year.
The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year is nominated tonight for three more awards at the 56th Annual CMA Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year (Growin’ Up). Combs will also perform his latest (and 14th consecutive) #1 single, “The Kind of Love We Make,” during tonight’s live broadcast.
The accolades add to another triumphant year for Combs, who, in yet another unprecedented feat, immediately sold out his massive 2023 World Tour, including all 16 of the North American stadium dates. With 39 shows across 3 continents and 16 countries, the record-breaking run is the largest tour ever for a country artist. The trek includes shows at Arlington, TX’s AT&T Stadium, Nashville’s Nissan Stadium and Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium, as well as stops in Australia, New Zealand, U.K., Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, France and Belgium. See below for complete tour itinerary.
The World Tour follows the release of Combs’ widely acclaimed new album, Growin Up’, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this past summer (River House Artists/Columbia Nashville, stream/purchase here). The record features twelve tracks including Combs’ current single, “Going, Going, Gone,” which was recently sent to country radio and is rapidly rising.
