Nicole and Combs met in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida during the 30A Songwriters Festival in 2016. They found themselves in the crowd and Luke joined Nicole and her friend group.

“I was leaving a songwriters round and he was walking up late to it. I was just like, ‘Hey, come hang out with us, why are you by yourself?” said Hawking during an interview on Couple Things with Shawn Johnson and Andrew East.

After the festival ended they both went back to Nashville. Hocking had always sought for a “starving artist” according to Nashville Lifestyles. 

During the publication in 2021, Comb said, “I could tell she was different than anybody I had ever met,” 

“I realized we could hang out and just be ourselves in front of each other,” Hocking said. “I could wear no makeup and be my weird self — because we’re all weird, but we get to choose who to share that side of us with. We could be each other’s weird in front of each other. That’s when it was like, ‘You know what? This guy’s a keeper.’”

When did Combs and Nicole get Engaged? 

Fans were. blessed with the notice that Combs was getting engaged with Hocking in November, then they posted a picture of him kissing her. 

“She said yes a while ago but this is a way better place to take pictures than the kitchen. Can’t wait to spend forever with you.” Combs wrote in his caption. 

The way that he proposed to her was really beautiful. He got on one knee and expressed his feelings. “It was great, It ended up being a better story than it would have been.” said Hocking.

In 2017 Combs released ‘Beautiful Crazy’ and later revealed on Nashville Lifestyles that he wrote the song when he first began to date Hocking. 

“The next time we wrote together I had just started hanging out with Nicole and had this overflow of feelings about her, so when I started writing, the lines just came out of the things that we did,” he said.

“Like the ‘Her day starts with a coffee and ends with a wine’ part, that wasn’t a corny  I made up. I just made her coffee every morning when we woke up and then I would pour her a wine every night,” he continued. “It just kind of fell together pretty quickly. I always felt like it was a really great song, and it was neat to be able to play it for her.”

Hockings then rold to Nashville Lifestyles where she found the character of the song really similar to her. 

“I obviously didn’t want to ask, ‘Is this about me?’ It made me a little bit shy, but it was awesome,” she said. “Everyone wants to have a song written about them!”

The song was a really huge success for the pair. It broke records and was titled, ‘Song Of The Year’ at the 2019 CMA Awards.
