Luke Combs Pours His Heart Out in ‘Better Together’ at 2020 ACM Awards

Luke Combs offered up some love when he performed  “Better Together” at the stage at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe during the 55th annual ACM Awards on Wednesday (Sept. 16).

Combs, who was nominated for three awards this year, acknowledged that 2020 hasn’t exactly been the best of years for most people. “I know it’s been a crazy year for everybody and there have been bright spots, I’m sure, for all of us, and one of the biggest bright spots of my entire life was getting married this year,” he explained. “So I want to play you guys a song that I wrote for my wife before we were married.”

Combs then began to croon the tune with just a keyboardist accompanying him. “It’s a match made up in heaven/ Like good ole boys and beer/ And me, as long as you’re right here,” he sang.

The song is the final track from his 2019 sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get. The release landed Combs his first Billboard 200 No. 1 album, which came after a record-setting week debuted with 172,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S.

Ahead of his solo performance, Combs helped kick off the show with a performance by the 2020 nominees for entertainer of the year. The nominees performed a medley of some of their biggest hits.

This is the first time the awards have been held in Nashville. The show, hosted by Keith Urban, was previously scheduled for its usual city of Las Vegas in April, but was postponed and relocated due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The ACM Awards are produced by dick clark productions, which is owned by MRC Media, the parent company of Billboard.
