Luke Combs performs “Love You Anyway” and joins Ed Sheeran on surprise duet of “Life Goes On” at 2023 ACM Awards



Country superstar Luke Combs performed twice during this year’s ACM Awards livestream on Amazon Prime Video: his current fan-voted single, “Love You Anyway,” and a surprise duet with Ed Sheeran performing “Life Goes On” from Sheeran’s new album, -. A new studio version of Sheeran’s “Life Goes On (featuring Luke Combs)” is out now (listen/share HERE). 
Of the collaboration, Combs shares, “I was super excited when Ed reached out to me. He sent this song and said he wanted to do it on the ACMs and then shortly after said he wanted to do a full-blown recorded version of it. I’ve been a fan of his for a long, long time. He’s an incredible singer and an incredible songwriter and we’ve been buddies for a couple years, so this is a dream come true.” 
The performances add to yet another monumental year for Combs, who released his new album, Gettin’ Old—a companion to his acclaimed 2022 record, Growin’ Up—earlier this spring via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here). Receiving widespread critical attention, Combs recently spoke with Esquire, who calls him, “the best country singer of his generation.” Additionally, The New York Times proclaims, “…grounded in country, complete with fiddle fills, but it’s also pointed toward a wide pop audience,” while Billboard declares, “his electrifying-yet-earthy voice soundtracking this time in his life as a husband, father and entertainer at the top of his game” and Music Rowpraises, “one of the most gripping vocalists in our genre.
The themes of maturity and thoughtfulness are embedded in this beautifully crafted lyric.” 
Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin’ Old is Combs’ fourth full-length album following Growin’ Up, 2019’s 3x Platinum What You See is What You Get and his 4x Platinum debut, This One’s For You. Across these eighteen tracks, Combs continues to establish himself as one of music’s most authentic and powerful voices in music today, as he explores themes of family, legacy, love and personal growth.
Combs continues to make history with the new album, recently earning the #1 and #2 most-added songs at country radio (“Love You Anyway” and “5 Leaf Clover” respectively), setting a modern-era record on the MediaBase, Country Aircheck and R&R charts. This accomplishment comes as Combs’ new version of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” which has garnered over 111 million global streams to date, is currently #14 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, #22 on the AC chart, #35 on the Hot AC chart and #39 on the Top 40 chart, continuing to rise on all. This is Combs’ first single outside the country genre. Furthermore, Combs recently earned his record-breaking, 15th consecutive #1 single at country radio with “Going, Going, Gone”—the longest consecutive #1 streak for an artist since their debut.
Known for his electric live shows, Combs is in the midst of his massive record-breaking World Tour with upcoming shows at Minneapolis’ US Bank Stadium, Charlotte’s Bank of America 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. With 40 shows across 3 continents and 16 countries, the tour is the largest ever for a country artist. See below for complete itinerary.
A Grand Ole Opry-member and 8x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music Award-winner, Combs has also partnered with Opry Entertainment Group to open a massive multi-level entertainment complex in downtown Nashville, expected to open summer 2024.
