What Luke Combs Blames For Being Kicked Off 'The Voice'

What Luke Combs Blames For Being Kicked Off 'The Voice'

You’d think that a show called “The Voice” really would be all about vocal talent, right? At the end of the day, though, it’s still a reality show that functions on ratings. “Essentially, [the producers told me] I was too boring to be on television,” Luke Combs recounted in an interview with the “Full Send” podcast. “I didn’t even make it [through] the auditions. I didn’t even make it to the show. I still have the letter in storage that’s like, ‘You’re a great singer, but…'”

Previously, Combs shared his experience with Whiskey Riff, where he said that producers didn’t find him “interesting enough for the show’s ratings.” The silver lining is that Combs still walked away feeling positive despite the rejection. “It gave me a lot of confidence because I was good enough voice-wise to make it through all those producer auditions,” he explained. Clearly! As of writing, Combs has seven Grammy nominations under his belt, and he’s also won CMAs for Entertainer of the Year in 2021 and 2022. He’s probably not sweating that rejection from “The Voice” way back when.

Interestingly, Combs named another reality show alum, Morgan Wallen, as his biggest competition in the music industry today. “I think anyone who says there is [no competition] is lying. I think any business is competitive,” Combs told Billboard in 2022.
