Luke Combs has quickly risen to the top of the country music universe ever since the release of his debut album, "This One's For You." Each of his first seven singles have reached Number 1 and been certified either gold or platinum.
As someone who doesn't like the modern pop and bro country sounds, Luke Combs is a refreshing mainstream artist. His songs have a level of authenticity that most don't these days.
His newest song deals with all the things he wanted to be when he grew up, and among them is Braves' legend and Hall of Fame third baseman Chipper Jones.
"I used to want to hit 'em like Chipper did, but I swung it just a little too slow," Combs sings in the unreleased song, which he debuted on social media last night.
The shoutout got a reaction out of Jones, who tweeted back at Combs earlier this morning. The greats recognize the greats.
