Luke Combs’ star continues to rise in 2018. The platinum-selling artist with a hit album, This One’s For You, and multiple No.1 singles under his belt won New Artist of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards. Combs’ girlfriend, Nicole Hocking, was his date for the night. Hocking and Combs’ parents were in the audience when Combs thanked the three of them in his acceptance speech. The attention is now on Hocking, who has been with Combs since before his rising fame. Our Nicole Hocking wiki turns the spotlight on Combs’ wonderful girlfriend.

She’s from Florida

Nicole Hocking, who hails from Fort Myers, Florida, was born on July 22, 1992 and is 26 years old. Her family, including her mother, Marcy Hocking, and sister, Jenna Hocking, still reside in Florida.

Both Nicole and Jenna graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University. Nicole appears to have been a member of Kappa Delta sorority. Jenna, a 2017 graduate with a degree in hospitality management, works at the Hilton West Palm Beach.

After college, Hocking moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2014. At the time, she was in a relationship, according to her Facebook page. However, that relationship apparently ended and Hocking met Luke Combs in Nashville. They’ve been dating since early 2016, before he was famous.

Hocking travels to Florida often. While she has fallen in love with Nashville, her home state still holds a special place in her heart.

On her birthday this year, she launched a Facebook fundraiser for Florida-based nonprofit, Captains for Clean Water. She raised $795.00 for the cause.

She Works in the Music Business

When she was a student in Florida, Hocking worked at a local bar. In Nashville, Hocking is reportedly on staff at Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI). Her association with the Nashville music scene is probably how she met Luke Combs.

When they met, Combs was still a nameless singer with no record deal. “Everybody was like, ‘Yeah, this is never gonna work,’” Combs said, “and so I didn’t have anything when we met.”

While Combs is signed under River House, he has worked with BMI artists. He co-wrote his triple platinum debut single, “Hurricane,” with BMI songwriters, Ray Fulcher and Jordan Walker.

Since Combs’ debut in 2017, Hocking has accompanied him to events like the Billboard Music Awards, the CMT Awards, and the CMA Awards. And she’s also socializing with celebs.

Nicole’s celebrity encounters, which she shares on Instagram, include Jimmy Buffet, Chrissy Metz, and Post Malone. Most recently, she was Combs’ plus one to Brett Young’s wedding.

She Helped Combs Quit Dipping

Luke Combs has a thing for chewing tobacco, but he recently quit dipping. The reason—Nicole Hocking.

“I’m trying to quit dipping—well actually, I have quit,” Combs said. “It was ’cause of my girlfriend. She hated that I dipped and, you know, it was just time. Time to just kick it.”

Combs replaced the tobacco with lozenges. Even though he doesn’t like the taste of lozenges, he successfully overcame his addiction.

Combs decided to quit dipping before it negatively affected his voice—though we’re pretty sure Hocking was his biggest encouragement.

He’s not secretive about how much he adores his girlfriend. He writes the most heartfelt captions for her on his Instagram, but it was his post in August that made his followers go Aww!
