Luke Combs Reflects on Every CMA Fest Stop He Played – Everett Post

For country artists, the CMA Fest is a reference: it takes place every year, and each year, artists can see their career evolve from the smallest stages to a headliner at Nissan Stadium.

“CMA Fest, for me, has been huge,” says Luc Combes, one of the main performing artists of this year. Although he now plays at Nissan Stadium, he has had to work his way up, and looking back on his early years at the festival is an opportunity to see how his career has evolved.

“It’s like that moment in time that exists at the same time every year,” the singer continues. “And you say, ‘Okay, last year I did the scene in the hotel lobby, and now I’m doing the scene in the bar. And then you’re at Riverfront, then you’re at Ascend, and then you’re here.

“Here,” of course, is Nissan Stadium: the pinnacle of the festival, where every artist participating in CMA Fest hopes to one day find themselves.

“You can really track your career development,” Luke continues. “Obviously Nissan is the thing you want to be able to do, and I’m lucky I was able to do that.”

CMA Fest 2022 took place in June, but fans can rewatch all the action in the CMA-Festival television special, airing on ABC on August 3. Dierks Bentley and Elle King will host the show.

Fans tuning in will get a front-row seat to all the most recent festival performance highlights, including Luke’s set. The special will feature his performances of “Beer Never Broke My Heart” as well as his new single, “The Kind of Love We Make.”
