Luke Combs performs ‘Used To You’ on Kimmel to honor Las Vegas shooting victims, sad he has to

Country music singer Luke Combs made his debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night with his new single ‘Used To You‘.

Combs, who was scheduled to tape a song last night that would have been aired on the show later on in the Fall, was asked to sing the song by Jimmy Kimmel to honor the Las Vegas shooting victims. A shooting that so far,  has claimed the lives of 59 people in America’s worst ever mass shooting.

Kimmel asked Luke Combs to do this as he was one of the performers at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Vegas that was attacked by the shooter over the weekend, and an eye witness to the shooting.

A shooting that, for just about anyone who lives outside America, is just beyond comprehension. And beyond comprehension that guns are still so readily available in the US. And, even after this, still will be.

F*cked up doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Combs said this about the performance on his Instagram account:

Tonight, the band and I were scheduled to tape a performance at @jimmykimmel Live! to air on TV later this fall. While we were on set today, Jimmy asked if I would be willing to perform a song tonight (11:35|10:35c on ABC) to honor last night’s fallen; I immediately agreed and we will be playing “Used to You.” Music is a healer. In this overwhelming darkness, I believe we will find hope when we rise together. Evil will not win. Fans, it is the blessing of my life to get to make music with you and for you every day. Tonight, may we find light and hope in the chaos.

Used To You‘ is from Luke Combs debut album This One’s For You. Released in June this year on the Columbia Nashville label, the album hit the number 1 spot on the US Country Albums chart.
