At 30 years old, Luke Combs can definitely consider himself a success. After dropping out of high school in his senior year, Combs pursued his musical dreams in Nashville, Tennessee. Today, he has legions of adoring fans and an estimated net worth of about $5 million. Combs is the epitome of a self-made country star. With only six years in the industry, he’s published two albums, four EPs, and eight Billboard #1 singles. As if that wasn’t enough success, Luke met his better half, Nicole Hocking, in 2016. It was the beginning of a beautiful love story. Recently, the happy couple said their “I do’s.”
Luke and Nicole have been an item since 2016, long before Combs enjoyed the perks of success. At the time, he had no record deals, no tours, and very few prospects. Nicole worked in Nashville’s BMI, where they first met. It was then that she decided to believe in him. It paid off.
Luke’s star was on the rise, and his talent was soon recognized. 2017’s “This One’s for You” would go on to spend a record 50 weeks as the #1 Top Country Album. Nicole was there through it all, giving Luke the love and support he needed to succeed (and to quit dipping). As Luke’s career developed, his relationship with Nicole only deepened. By 2018, they were both ready for the next step.
In late November 2018, Nicole Hocking and Luke Combs finally got engaged. Combs happily shared the news through his official Instagram account, accompanied by a stunning picture of a sunset. The actual proposal apparently took place in a less-stunning kitchen, while the couple was on a Hawaiian escapade.
Since their engagement, their love has only grown stronger. Both Luke and Nicole are constantly sharing with their fans just how important their relationship is to them.
Combs and Hocking celebrated their wedding in early August 2020, amidst the global pandemic. Sadly, this meant the singer and his better half’s friends and relatives were largely absent. However, Luke published a heartfelt Instagram post to mark the occasion. He said that the wedding was the best day of his life as he got to marry his best friend, “I love you. Here’s to forever,” he wrote.
Nicole also shared pictures from their big day, along with a message to her friends and family. She declared her love for her new hubby and mentioned how she couldn’t wait to celebrate with everyone next year. While there weren’t any loved ones present, Jojo, Luke and Nicole’s beautiful rescue pup, got to be a part of the ceremony.
