Luke Combs Discusses Being Turned Down In Nashville
In an interview with Bobby Bones back in February, Luke discusses how one of his close friends was able to get him a meeting with a BMI songwriter rep right after moving to Nashville. During that meeting, he played him what would eventually become his first three #1 singles.
- When It Rains
- One Number Away
However, according to the rep, Luke's songwriting "needed work" and he was rejected.
Luke shares that he's not mad and that the person, whom he won't name drop, probably doesn't even remember meeting him...but part of me doesn't believe that's true. Regardless, if the guy does remember him, I hope he feels like a fucking idiot. He had a meeting with the biggest artist in the genre right now and blew it.
