Luke Combs’ epic iHeartRadio Music Festival setlist spanned his career as the country music icon took the stage at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night (September 24). Combs got the entire crowd on their feet as he delivered powerful performances of “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours,” — both of which were recorded on his debut album This One’s For You — “Lovin’ On You” and other fan-favorite anthems.

Combs kicked off his set with “Kind of Love We Make,” one of the latest singles to release from his long-awaited new album, Growin’ Up. Combs debuted the project in June, days after he and his wife, Nicole, welcomed their firstborn child. Tex Lawrence Combs made his arrival on Father’s Day, and his superstar dad wrote in a heartfelt tweet at the end of the week: “Y’all I can’t believe this album is finally coming out tomorrow. I’ve got a beautiful, healthy baby boy, an amazing wife, a good dog, good friends, good family, and the best fans. I’m having a whiskey by myself to celebrate and process it all. Life is good. Cheers!”

Growin’ Up also included “Doin’ This,” “Middle Of Somewhere,” “Tomorrow Me,” “Used To Wish I Was” and other highlights on the 12-track project. Combs’ latest songs join a long list of previous hits over the years, including “Lovin’ On You,” “Forever After All” and, for a high-energy finale for his iHeartRadio Music Festival setlist, “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”

The reigning iHeartRadio Music Awards Country Artist of the Year is gearing up to perform his biggest hits on his 2023 world tour, bringing special guests Riley GreenLainey WilsonFlatland CavalryBrent CobbCody Johnson and Lane Pittman on select dates of the international trek. Combs announced earlier this month that he’s bringing his 35-concert tour to three continents, stopping in 16 countries along the way (including stops in New Zealand, Australia, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and more).
