Luke Combs just received a huge honor. He was named to the 2021 TIME100 Next list.
The list spotlights those “who are shaping the future and defining the next generation of leadership.” To make the honor even more special, Garth Brooks wrote Luke’s profile for the article himself!
“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. Everything Luke tries … he sounds very much at home. He’s a singer who you can tell is really comfortable.”
Joining Luke on the Time100 Next list: author Brit Bennett, basketball player Luka Doncic, marine biologist Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, journalist Steve Kornacki, United Kingdom Finance Minister Rishi Sunak, architect Sumayya Vally, filmmaker John Wilson and more. The full list is available at Time.com.
