The success Luke Combs has been enjoying in the past couple of years is benefiting more than just himself.

The 29-year-old singer-songwriter has used his success to help his mom and dad retire.

“I helped both of my parents retire within the last year, which has been a really amazing experience,” he shares.

Luke admits there is more than just giving back to the people who gave to him all his life behind his actions.

“That decision was solely predicated off being able to spend more time with my parents as they get older. My dad’s 64 and my mom’s 58 [or] 59,” Luke confesses.

He says he loves getting to share his experiences with his mom and dad.

“Seeing them both be retired now … my mom retired literally two weeks ago. So, watching that happen has been, not only a joy for me, but a great way for them to have the financial freedom and the ability to come out and experience some of these awesome things that I get to do, you know, right by my side … which is … You know … I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

Luke is obviously such a good person and the people who raised him did it right.

You can bet that Luke has even more success in his future. He will release his highly anticipated sophomore album What You See Is What You Get Friday, November 8th.

The following Wednesday (11/13) could be another successful night for Luke. He is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year (“Beautiful Crazy“) and Musical Event of the Year (“Brand New Man” collaboration with Brooks & Dunn) at the 53rd CMA Awards that night. I can’t imagine him leaving empty-handed after the award winners are announced.

Listen for the latest single “Even Though I’m Leaving” from Luke Combs (and his six consecutive #1 singles) on Bloomington-Normal’s #1 Country, B104.
