Luke Combs Recalls Having ‘Only Child Syndrome’ During Childhood Christmas

By  | 

Luke Combs grew up cherishing time spent with his family during the Christmas season.

“When I was a little kid I was huge into Christmas morning you know?” he began. “Guilty of having only child syndrome, but as of late, I like getting stuff for my parents and just hanging out with them.”

The “Hurricane” singer-songwriter knows just how special family time is with his constant touring schedule.

“I appreciate that time so much because it’s so few and far between right now. And everyone’s like, ‘You know we miss ya.’ Anytime my family gets together they call me,” Combs revealed. “That’s always kind of bittersweet. “It’s great to hear em but it’s kind of tough to know I’m the guy that’s missing out cause you can’t get that time back.”

Combs added that he “love[s] the season” for the “vibe” that he shares with his family and friends.

Luke Combs and His Christmas Family Time

In 2020, Luke Combs shared how he spends the Christmas season with his loved ones. He likes to keep the family get-togethers intimate. His mother’s side of the family has an annual Christmas party in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“I grew up, we were always very family oriented in that sense,” he continued. “So I have a lot of fond memories of growing up with my cousins and hanging out with my grandparents and my aunts and uncles.”

Combs noted that the family quality time is the thing that he looks “forward to the most about the holidays.” That and the fact that he gets to go home and see the winter wonderland of snowy mountains.

“It’s not getting gifts or getting drunk… which is also cool, but I think just hanging and seeing people you haven’t seen in a while and catching up with them I think is what I look forward to the most,” he concluded.
