Boston Celtics Might Have Country Star Luke Combs to Thank For Last Night’s Win
It is always so much fun to see what our favorite country artists get into when they are in our neck of the woods.
Will they hit up our favorite family attractions like Jimmy Fallon at Storyland?
Will they grab a beer and lobster roll at the Porthole in Portland like Gordon Ramsay?
Or will they snag some courtside seats and root on our favorite basketball team like Luke Combs?

"Some things just go better together… like @lukecombs and the @celtics. Can’t wait for back-to-back shows tomorrow and Friday!"
I think it's safe to say Comb's was the C's good luck charm (or should we say, good LUKE charm. I crack myself up!) because they pulled out a win against the 76ers 88-87!
We love us some Luke Combs because no matter how much success he has (and he's had A LOT) he still remains that down to earth bearded teddy bear from North Carolina.
According to popculture.com, when asked about his fame Luke said "I might be on a plane home after a show and be there an hour later. But then I'm still scooping the cat litter."
We talk about this on the air all the time but Luke Combs has my favorite come up story of all time.
Luke moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music a music industry executive told him he would never make it in this business. In so many words, he said that no one would ever pay to see him perform because of the way he looks and because his songs were not good.
As you may know, Luke's first 8 singles went to number one (he is the only country artist in history to ever do that) and he is this year's CMA Entertainer of the Year. Tonight he will perform one of two SOLD OUT shows at the TD Garden in Boston. The moral of the story, kiddos? Never give up on your dreams. And also that music industry executive must feel pretty dang stupid.
