Ahead of the taping of his Apple Music Live concert at Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte, North Carolina, Luke Comb sat down with Kelleigh Bannen to discuss his latest project Growin’ Up, and how he has changed over the course of the last few years. During the interview, Combs also revealed that he suffers from anxiety and “crippling” obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), but things have changed for the better since the birth of his son, Tex Lawrence.
Said Combs: “There’s stuff that used to matter as far as the things that you worry about, you just don’t really worry about that stuff anymore. I mean, and almost instantly. Really… Like, you’re just kind of like, ‘Don’t care about that. Don’t care’ And I was fine before, but I did tend to have pretty tremendous anxiety at times in my life.”
Combs shared that he has a new outlook on life: “In a lot of ways, it’s just looking at things… I look at things now in ways that I never would’ve been able to before. And even before the kid. After getting married and then spending a lot of time at home during COVID. Just a bunch of stuff happened. It was time to process all of this craziness that’s happened in my career, too. I mean, that’s important.”
Combs will also be hitting the road this fall on his headlining Middle Of Somewhere Tour with direct support from Jordan Davis. The trek, which kicks off on September 2 in Bangor, ME, will also feature special guests Morgan Wade and Lainey Wilson on select dates.
