Watch Luke Combs’ New 360-Degree Video for “Beer Never Broke My Heart”

Nash Daily News - Thu, 12/12/2019 - 14:20

Luke Combs dropped a new 360-degree video for “Beer Never Broke My Heart.” The new clip, which was created by MelodyVR, was filmed during Luke’s recent tour stop in Tacoma, Wash.

Luke co-penned “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” which topped the charts in August, with Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana while on the road for his Don’t Tempt Me With a Good Time Tour.

“We wrote ‘Beer Never Broke My Heart’ on the tour bus, actually, on my first headlining tour—the Don’t Tempt Me with a Good Time Tour,” says Luke. “I had my buddies Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana out on the bus with me, and I had had this title on my phone for a long time and really wanted to save it for some guys that I thought would kind of understand and grasp what I was looking for out of the song. I went to soundcheck and I got back, and they had kind of been hammering away on this thing . . . we buttoned it up, and it’s just been a fan-favorite ever since then.”

Watch Luke’s new video below.

Dustin Lynch Opens Up About Model Girlfriend, Kelli Seymour

Nash Daily News - Thu, 12/12/2019 - 13:46

Dustin Lynch created a buzz during CMA Awards week in November as he attended industry events with his new girlfriend, Kelli Seymour.

Dustin recently sat down with the titular host of The Blair Garner Show to reveal a handful of details about his one-year relationship with Kelli, including how they met, their first date, going public with the relationship and more.

Southern Girl

“She models for a living [in California]. She’s from Mississippi. She’s a south Mississippi girl. I can’t wait to get back down there. She’s from the Biloxi [area], around the big city there.”

Instagram Connection

“I hit her up in the DMs on Instagram. I slid in. We had great chemistry just going back and forth, texting and FaceTime, like, ‘Man, we’ve got to meet,’ but I was on tour with Cole [Swindell] and Lauren Alaina [in 2018], and I just couldn’t find the time to fly out to meet her, you know?”

First Date

“We met at [one of my] shows in November of 2018. For a month or two we’d been talking, and then I was like, ‘Man, what if you come to a show?’ So it was a pretty easy playing field for me—I’m going to be onstage rocking out, hopefully impressing her. So it tricked her. It won her over. We ended up hitting it off. We had a great time. It was a great test for me too because I was really busy that night with different industry things and she had to be on her own and kind of just fend for herself amongst the band and the crew and different radio people that were there and she did great. I’m like, ‘Man, this girl’s got it going on.’”

Going Public

“Like you said, I’ve always been super private. I’m just to a point where I’m very comfortable with Kelli, and it’s like, ‘How do we roll this out [during CMA Awards week].’ I don’t know, it was just bizarre that it’s in the public eye. So yeah, we had to be as a team, just figure out what the best way to do that was, personally for me, as well as professionally.”

Special Girl

“Gosh, I mean, instantly for me it was like, ‘Wow, this is a special girl.’ I mean it was kind of just from day one.”

Dustin will release his upcoming fourth studio album, Tullahoma, on Jan. 17. The new project takes its name from Dustin’s Tennessee hometown, which is about 80 miles southeast of Nashville. The 11-song set will feature seven brand-new songs, including a collaboration with Lauren Alaina on “Thinking ’Bout You.” The new album also features three tunes—“Ridin’ Roads,” “Little Town Livin’” and “Red Dirt, Blue Eyes”—from his 2019 EP, Ridin’ Roads, and his 2018 standalone single, “Good Girl.”

Longtime friend and frequent co-writer Zach Crowell co-produced the album with Dustin. Songwriters include Rhett Akins, Matt Ramsey, Dallas Davidson, Luke Laird, busbee and more. Dustin co-wrote six songs on the new album.
