Luke Combs hit the stage with a bang and performed his new song "Cold As You" at the 2020 CMA Awards. The song is a new addition on the deluxe version of his nominated album, What You See Ain't Always What You Get, which was released last month. Combs wrote the song along with Shane Minor, Montana, and Singleton and released it with a couple of other new additions -- "Six Feet Apart," "My Kinda Folk," "Forever After All," "Without You," and "The Other Guy."
As soon as Combs started belting out his cheeky lyrics "drinking beer almost as cold as you" his wife Nicole Hocking stood up in the audience to dance along with her hubby's song. She was singing along to every word and didn't care that she was the only one standing up and dancing, it was actually quite adorable to watch her cheer him on. The couple recently tied the knot in August after being together for years. They actually have a really sweet love story that started before Combs was even famous.
This is a big year of nominations for Combs. He's nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year for "Even Though I'm Leaving" (with Wyatt B. Durrette III and Ray Fulcher), Song of the Year for "I Hope You're Happy Now" (with Randy Montana, Carly Pearce, and Jonathan Singleton), Single of the Year for "Beer Never Broke My Heart," and Album of the Year for What You See Is What You Get.
