Continuing a PGA TOUR tradition of honoring men and women in uniform, THE PLAYERS Championship is executing a full slate of military appreciation activities and programs for the 2018 event, including a special performance by 2017 breakout artist Luke Combs that took place last week, during Military Appreciation Day.
The Concert took place in front of the iconic par-3, 17th hole island green of THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass to a packed stadium of roaring fans. Halfway through the concert two PGA TOUR players, Branden Grace and Justin Rose, surprised Luke and encouraged him to take a shot at hitting a ball onto the iconic Island Green from just behind the concert stage. His ball unfortunately landed in the water, but his performance was a hole-in-one!
Combs joins an impressive list of country music stars who have performed on Military Appreciation Day including Tim McGraw (2010), Darius Rucker (2011), Luke Bryan (2012), Dierks Bentley (2013), Jake Owen (2014), Big & Rich (2015), Toby Keith (2016) and Sam Hunt (2017).
With gritty, grizzled vocals, brazen songwriting talent and a dynamic live show, River House Artists/Columbia Nashville singer-songwriter Luke Combs stormed onto the Country music landscape as “one of the format’s burliest and brightest stars” (Vulture). The Asheville, North Carolina native released his GOLD-certified debut album, This One’s For You in 2017 which spurred two consecutive PLATINUM-certified multi-week No. 1 hit radio singles, “Hurricane” and “When It Rains It Pours,” and his current Top 30 and climbing hit, “One Number Away.”
