Luke Combs Talks With Legendary News Journalist Dan Rather

Luke Combs Talks With Legendary News Journalist Dan Rather

Luke Combs has been interviewed a lot over the last couple of years, but his most recent interview will surely be one that Luke remembers for a long time.

Luke sat down with legendary News figure Dan Rather for a little Q & A for Dan’s AXS TV show The Big Interview.

One of the questions Dan asked was, “Well, you started playing bars wherever and whenever you could. Does it seem a long time away from you now? Or does it seem just yesterday?”

Luke replied, “I think in a lot of ways, Dan, it feels like both of those things at the same time. Feels like it was six months ago that we were doing that, but it also feels like it’s been ten lifetimes since then because I’ve done so much. I’ve grown so much as a human being and as a man since then. I’ve learned a lot about the world. I had never been on an airplane until I was 25 years old, and now I’ve played two tours in Australia, three tours in Europe. I’ve played a sold out arena in every state of the United States and it’s just been insane the amount of things that have changed in my life since then. I like to think I’m pretty much the same guy that I was back then, pretty level-headed, pretty easy to get along with, pretty agreeable guy…but I just love to go out and sing and have a good time and make people happy. And I’m just lucky that people love to watch me do that.”

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
