Luke Combs is among the 100 most influential people in the world in 2021, according to Time.
He appears on its 2021 100 Next list , which spotlights those "who are shaping the future and defining the next generation of leadership." The people on the list come from the world of music, public health, sports, philanthropy, acting and more. "In this age of self-promotion, Luke Combs is letting everybody else do the talking for him. That's big in country music, which is all about sincerity and humility...Luke has both of those in spades. He realizes that being a star is not up to him: the people will confirm it," says Garth Brooks, who wrote Luke's profile for the magazine. "Everything Luke tries...he sounds very much at home. He's a singer who you can tell is really comfortable."
