Twisters The Album Art




 Country superstar and 2x CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs today announces his exhilarating new single Ain’t No Love In Oklahoma”, taken from Twisters: The Album, the star-studded musical companion to the new adrenaline-pumping, big-screen thrill ride, Twisters - both out July 19th. Watch the thrilling official video featuring a special cameo from NASCAR driver John Hunter Nemechek HERE.

Twisters, a current-day chapter of the 1996 blockbuster, stars Daisy Edgar-Jones, Glen Powell, Anthony RamosTwisters: The Album, also features new tracks from Miranda Lambert, Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson, Bailey Zimmerman, Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Megan Moroney, Shania Twain, Tyler Childers, and more.

Luke is hot off the back of his massive sold out World Tour, which arrived in the UK in October last year, including two huge triumphant nights at London’s O2 Arena. With 44 shows across 3 continents and 16 countries, the tour was the largest ever for a country artist and broke records across the globe.

It’s been another triumphant year for Combs, who leads nominees at this year’s ACM Awards with 8 nominations and performed an unforgettable duet of “Fast Car” with Tracy Chapman during the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The performance was the culmination of a massive year for  “Fast Car,” as Combs’ version of the song won Single of the Year at the 2023 CMA Awards (with Chapman winning Song of the Year). It also spent five-consecutive weeks atop Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and reached #1 on the Hot AC chart, the first song by a male solo artist to ever top both the Hot AC and Country charts. The 2x Platinum single, which has garnered over 1.1 billion global streams to date, has also spent eighteen weeks in the top 5 of Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart, eight of which were spent at #2.

“Fast Car” is featured on Combs’ most recent album, 2023's Gettin’ Old—a companion to his acclaimed 2022 record, Growin’ Up. Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin’ Old further establishes Combs as one of music’s most authentic and powerful voices.

Multi-platinum GRAMMY®-award winning artist, Lainey Wilson, has released her brand new single “Hang Tight Honey” via BMG/Broken Bow Records. “Hang Tight Honey” is the debut track from Wilson's highly anticipated album, Whirlwind, out August 23, 2024.

Written by Wilson, Driver Williams, Jason Nix, Paul Sikes, and produced by GRAMMY® award-winning producer, Jay Joyce, “Hang Tight Honey” follows the announcement of Wilson’s forthcoming record, Whirlwind.

GRAMMY®-award winning, prolific singer-songwriter, Lainey Wilson has earned the enthusiasm and praise of the industry. Critically acclaimed and touted as ‘Entertainer of the Year,’ the Louisiana native who has often been described as a “bona fide storyteller at work,” has made a name for herself as a next generation icon. Constantly defying the traditional norms and conventions of the Country music genre, Wilson’s “rulebreaking” achievements have led her to numerous accolades and a diehard fanbase. Nearly 10 years to the day after leaving her small farming community in a camper trailer to chase her dreams in Nashville, she earned her first PLATINUM certified song, with “Things A Man Oughta Know,” and won over legions of fans across the globe with her signature sound and aesthetic, blending traditional Country with a modern yet retro flare. 

Thus far, her music has taken her worldwide with headlining shows in Europe, the UK, Australia, and more. With seven No.1 songs to date, Wilson has become the lead female artist with the most No.1’s this decade along with two GRAMMY nominations, six ACM, and seven CMA awards.

Making her acting debut in Season 5 of Paramount’s smash hit series Yellowstone, Wilson has become a triple-threat in the industry, claiming the roles of singer, songwriter, and actress. Fans can also catch Wilson on her upcoming “Country’s Cool Again” headlining North American tour later this summer and pre-order/pre-save/pre-add her forthcoming studio album, Whirlwind now.
