Well, that’s one way to do it.
Before he was one of the biggest Country stars in the world, Luke Combs was just a boy from North Carolina attending Appalachian State University when he dropped out with only 21 credits left until graduation.
Luke told Taste Of Country back in 2018 “There was never a plan B. I don’t think that’s a smart thing, but I think that anybody that kind of gets to this point, there really isn’t a plan B.”
Throughout the years, Luke has said on numerous occasions that he wanted to be a homicide detective at one point but when it came to dropping out of college to pursue music, Luke never looked back.
In the beginning of his pursuit to follow his dreams, a record label in Nashville once told Luke that he’d never make it and that he needed to be better at songwriting after listening to three of his original songs. Those three songs he played for them went on to become the first three No. 1’s of his career with “Hurricane,” “One Number Away” and “When It Rains It Pours.” Talk about a big screw you.
Even though it may have not been “smart” at the time, Luke Combs dropping out to pursue music was probably the best decision he ever made. The fans thank him as well.
