Luke Combs had the audience raising their beer bottles in the air at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday (June 5) with a raw performance of his latest hit “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”
Wearing his trademark trucker hat, Combs was undeniably country as he growled the lyrics into the microphone for a high-energy close to the 2019 CMT Music Awards. The visuals on the screen behind the crooner made the massive arena feel like a local dive bar, very fitting for an ode to the one beverage you can rely on when life goes awry. The performance was complete with confetti showering over the roaring crowd.
“Beer Never Broke My Heart,” released just last month, is the first release from Combs’ upcoming sophomore album. Check out the winners from the 2019 CMT Music Awards here and watch part of Combs’ closing performance below.
