Since the 30-year-old crooner has dropped a lovely wife-inspired song, let’s shed some light on who Nicole Hocking is and what’s their love story is.
Who is Nicole Hocking?
According to Country Fancast, the 28-year-old Nicole is a native of Florida who grew up in Fort Meyers, and before her life changed for good, she used to work as a recruiting coordinator at Broadcast Music Inc in Nashville.
As per Country Fancast, Combs and Hocking first met when the former had no publishing deal or a record deal. They hit it off really well and also attended a singer-songwriter festival in Key West, Florida in 2016. It is believed that Hocking spotted Combs walking down the street alone and then invited him to hang out with her friends. When the festival came to an end, they headed back to Nashville, where they both lived.
Combs earlier told People magazine that he had nothing at the time and was very much a struggling musician. While many people doubted that their relationship won’t head in any direction, the pair actually started dating.

Combs proposed to Hocking for the engagement in November 2018 while the pair were moving into their new home outside of Nashville.
The country singer proposed to his lady love in their kitchen but waited to share the news until they were in Hawaii and could click better pictures for the announcement, reports Country Living. He finally shared a beautiful picture on his official Instagram account and captioned it as, “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 @nicohocking I Love You! #Mahalo.”

After getting engaged in 2018, the lovely couple decided to take it to the next level in 2020. Combs and Hocking tied the knot at their beach home in southern Florida on August 1. Only the family members and close friends were invited to this intimate affair, as reported by Country Fancast. Luke took to his Instagram to make it official. The singer posted a picture of them a day later in their wedding attire in front of the beach and captioned it as, “Yesterday was the best day. I got to marry my best friend. I love you @nicocombs, here’s to forever.” Hocking also posted a picture with Combs on her official Instagram account where the newly-wed couple can be seen standing in front of a gorgeous sunset. She captioned the picture with a white heart emoticon.
‘Forever After All’ is not the first song the award-winning country music singer has penned for his wife. He has always been expressive about his love for his wife through his earlier songs like ‘Crazy Beautiful,’ ‘Nothing Like You’ and ‘Better Together.’
