Luke Combs was a resounding show closer at Wednesday’s (June 5) 2019 CMT Music Awards with this testimonial to the soothing properties of brew.
Little Big Town, immersed in game of beer pong, gave him the proper intro, and Combs thereafter stalked the stage like a Budweiser evangelist to drive the sermon home.
As the song’s insistent beat kept the crowd rocking, a shower of confetti rained down, practically obscuring the beaming Combs in the process.
“I don’t know what to say. First off, to my beautiful fiance Nicole, thank you for inspiring this song,” he said. He also gave a shout-out to his co-writers Wyatt Durrette and Robert Williford for writing the song with him and Bridges for his performance.
“Make some noise for this cat right here,” Bridges added. “Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful song, my brother.”
