How did Luke Combs and Nicole Hocking meet?

According to Parade, Nicole's job brought her and Luke together. Nicole had been working for Broadcast Music Inc. as a recruiting coordinator. The pair had mutual friends and were dating other people when they first met, but slowly began to grow together.

Luke wrote his first song, "Beautiful Crazy," about Nicole before they even started dating officially!

"I’m not much of a ladies’ man," Luke said. "But I was pretty proud of this one. I had written it, maybe two days before [I played it for her]." The pair officially started dating in 2016.

At a singer-songwriter festival in Florida, Nicole happened to be in attendance with a group of friends and spotted Luke alone on the street. Nicole invited Luke to join them, and the rest is history.

Luke did admit that in the beginning, he could see why people assumed their relationship wouldn't work. His career was just getting off the ground in 2016, while Nicole had graduated college with a degree in civil engineering. However, when Luke's music career began to skyrocket, Nicole took two years off work to support him.

"I stayed home for two years pretty much as his career was growing and growing, and I wanted to be there for all those first moments," she said.
