Luke Combs took the stage the 55th Annual Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday night in Nashville, performing his hit single "Doin' This" for the first time ever. Host Luke Bryan introduced the three-time CMA Award nominee, joking about their shared named:
"How come lately when I'm googling myself, I type Luke and the name that comes up first is not mine. And I'm pretty sure that alphabetically Bryan comes before Combs. I use to own the Luke real estate."
Just ahead of his big performance, Combs teased his new song on Twitter, sharing with his followers:
“Still trying to decide what I want to sing on the CMA Awards this Wednesday. Would y’all be cool with a brand new, unreleased song? And I’ll have it available to stream/purchase everywhere after my performance."
