[Watch] Luke Combs’ “She Got the Best of Me” Is a Career Retrospective

-

Luke Combs takes a walk down memory lane in his latest video for current single, “She Got the Best of Me.” Penned with Channing Wilson and Rob Snyder, the video for “She Got the Best of Me” opens with Luke grabbing a guitar from his truck and heading into the writing room.

As he walks into his publisher’s office, a floor mat in the doorway reads “Time heals everything.” A local news report is heard on the television and following the details of a car crash, the anchor segues to reveal that the singer’s debut album, This One’s For You, has gone platinum. Seconds later, the music video flashes back to Boone, N.C. in 2013 as Luke is driving around in his Dodge Neon, the car he owned when he moved to Nashville. He’s then spotted writing the song on the stickered guitar he learned to play on.

Snapshots of his rising career come in the form of a performance clip at the Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte, N.C., where he headlined years after seeing Eric Church perform there. An old concert flier shows another Luke show in North Carolina costing $10 per ticket. The crowds continue to grow and footage from a Revival show at Nashville’s Tin Roof where he first met his co-writers is shown, as are sold-out bar gigs, stadium shows and festival appearances.

Cameras pan to Luke’s three No. 1 plaques for previous singles “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours” and “One Number Away.” By now, Luke’s ditched his Dodge Neon for a stately ride—a tour bus. An impressive feat, in just five years the North Carolina native has accomplished more than most dream in a lifetime. Now, he’s writing his songs on his tour bus and traveling the country.

Luke is currently on tour with Jason Aldean as part of the singer’s High Noon Neon Tour, where he recently performed a sold-out show at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
