Luke Combs has enjoyed a brilliant rise to the top of the country charts with songs like She Got the Best of Me, When It Rains It Pours, and Hurricane. Since 2016, Nicole Hocking has been known as the lady love of the country music star. While this is a role she embraces whole-heartedly, there is a lot about this beauty that you may not know.
Florida Is Her Home State
Nicole was born on July 22, 1992 in Fort Myers, Florida. She lived there with her mother, Marcy, and her sister, Jenna. After completing high school, she attended Florida Gulf Coast University. She studied civil engineering before working on a few music internships. These internships were focused on country music, which took her to Nashville, Tennessee. It was there that she met the love of her life.
Music Brought Her and Her Fiancé Together
Music is a powerful attractant, and it was what brought Nicole together with her husband to be. She was attending a Florida music festival with friends when she found Luke. After asking him to join her party, Luke later asked her over for dinner when they got home. Once they returned to Nashville, the two began dating.
She Inspired the Hit Love Song Beautiful Crazy
Many songwriters have written songs about their wives and girlfriends, but Luke went even further. When he wrote the song Beautiful Crazy about Nicole, the two were not yet dating officially. This bold move was obviously the right one, since they became engaged in 2018. In fact, Luke has come right out and stated that this song helped cement the burgeoning relationship.
She Also Has a Career in Music
Nicole isn’t just marrying into the music industry. Since completing her bachelor’s degree, she has been active in music. In Nashville, she started working with Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI), where she works as a recruiting coordinator. She has worked with a long list of entertainers, including Jimmy Buffet and Post Malone.
