Luke Combs is "One Number Away" from #1, as he sells out arenas with Aldean

No Comments

ABC/Randy HolmesWith a couple weekends’ worth of capacity crowds already in the books, Jason Aldean‘s High Noon Neon Tour is already off to a pretty spectacular start.

“It’s been really fun,” opener Luke Combs says. “We just wrapped week two. It’s been really great. You know, great crowds, sold-out every night so far. So it’s been awesome.”

As a relative newcomer who’ll likely soon have his third #1 on his hands, Luke is taking notes as he watches the three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year work.

“You learn [that] how [you] command an audience that big is different,” Luke says of Jason. “You know, we’ve done a lot of club shows and a lot of amphitheater stuff. But doing a 25,000-plus-crowd a night is very different…”

“Trying to entertain the people all the way back in the back is what I’m trying to learn,” Luke explains. “I can take care of the people right here, but the people all the way in the back is a little bit more difficult.”

Meanwhile, Luke’s latest hit, “One Number Away,” is only “one number away” from the pinnacle of the country chart. The North Carolina native admits the #2 hit is based on personal experience.

“It is,” he tells ABC Radio. “And everybody has that person that maybe they’ve had a couple too many drinks and felt like they shouldn’t call, but they do anyway. That’s how we came up with the idea for that tune, and I’m glad we pulled it off.”

Starting Thursday, Luke, Jason and Lauren Alaina play Columbia, Maryland; Hartford, Connecticut; Mansfield, Massachusetts; and Bangor, Maine. The deluxe edition of Luke’s debut album, titled This One’s For You Too, comes out June 1.

Tropical cyclone development in and near the Gulf of Mexico over the next five days.

No Comments

We do have the potential of tropical cyclone development in and near the Gulf of Mexico over the next five (5) days.  Currently, there is no direct threat to the Middle Texas Coast.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring a weak disturbance across the northwestern Caribbean Sea.  There is a low chance (20%) for tropical cyclone development within the next five (5) days as this area for potential development moves into the central Gulf of Mexico.  This disturbance is expected to remain well east of the region and poses no direct threats to South Texas and the Middle Texas Coast at this time.

Unless major changes occur to the forecast, No additional briefings are planned at this time.

Although systems can and have developed before the start of the season, now is a good time to remind you that Hurricane Season officially begins June 1.

ABC/Craig SjodinLuke Bryan is set to unveil his new single, “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset,” on tonight’s season finale of American Idol. He’ll also perform his most recent #1, “Most People Are Good,” with finalist Gabby Barrett.

In fact, every member of the Top 3 will be singing a country tune at one point or another. Caleb Lee Hutchinson will do the chart-topping “Wagon Wheel” with Darius Rucker. All three — including Maddie Poppe — will join pop star Bebe Rexha to recreate “Meant to Be,” the crossover smash she originally did with Florida Georgia Line.

Look for Luke’s fellow judges Lionel Richie and Katy Perry to sing as well, along with visiting superstars Nick Jonas, Patti LaBelle, and Kermit the Frog.

American Idol crowns its first winner since returning on ABC starting tonight at 9 p.m. ET.
