SOME people have determined that country star Luke Combs is a supporter of President Donald Trump, but that is not necessarily the case.
Many believe he does not support the president’s agenda due to him being vocal about the Black Lives Matter movement and advocating for #BlackoutTuesday.
Is Luke Combs a supporter of President Trump?
Luke Combs’ political affiliation is unknown.
Combs has taken indirect political stances about his views such as choosing not to play at President Trump’s famous Fourth of July White House concert.
Instead, he opted to play at PBS’ annual A Capitol Fourth event, held at the same time as the White House gathering.
He also shared on Instagram during #BlackoutTuesday on June 2 that he was “listening, learning, and understanding.”
In contrast, President Trump has denounced the Black Lives Matter movement and his supporters have raged against those who back the organization.
Is Luke Combs married?
The country star married his fiancée Nicole Hocking during an intimate ceremony in Florida back in August.
Speaking on Couple Things with Shawn + Andrew in May, they explained that their friendship turned into a relationship when they found themselves both single at 2016’s Key West Songwriter’s Festival.
He said: “I didn’t have anything going on when we met. I didn’t have a record deal, or a publishing deal, anything.”
As Luke attempted to get his career off the ground, Nicole worked seven days a week between two jobs.
When the time was right, she joined him on the road because Luke “would miss her not being there” on tour.
The couple got engaged in fall 2018 when Luke got down on one knee in the kitchen of their home.
What other country singers have denounced Trump?
The Chicks’ singer Natalie Maines openly spoke about Trump and how she disagreed with his handling of coronavirus.
In light of the recent racially charged protests, as of June 2020, The Chicks decided to drop Dixie from their band name amid racial concerns.
The name Dixie refers to a nickname for southern states during the Confederacy.
It harks back to an era that glorified slavery and white supremacy.
The Chicks updated their social media handles and also released a new music video for their song, “March,” along with their new name.
In addition to the Chicks, ex country star Taylor Swift slammed President Trump on Twitter and accused him of trying to “blatantly cheat” in the presidential election.
“Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president,” Swift tweeted on Saturday.
“He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power.”
Swift has been vocal about her support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and advised her followers to request a ballot early and to vote early.
