Luke Combs still hasn't fully wrapped his mind around the fact that he is a double nominee heading into the CMA Awards in November. He said he wasn't even awake when the nominations were announced early last week. Luke explains: “I was actually in a dead sleep with I found out my CMA Nominations. My girlfriend, Nicole, woke me up. She was on her way to work. She was very excited and ecstatic, as was I. It took me a few minutes to process what was going on and it’s just unbelievable. You know, it’s something that you don’t ever think is possible for yourself and obviously it’s such an honor to be nominated not only for New Artist, but for Best Male Vocalist. It’s something I don’t take lightly. It’s been amazing.”
The CMA Awards will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on November 14th on ABC at 8 p.m. ET. It will again be hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley for the 11th time.
