Time just released their Time100 Next list for 2021 and only one country artist made it—Luke Combs.

According to Taste of Country, people who make the list are those “who are shaping the future and defining the next generation of leadership.”

Garth Brooks wrote the blurb that goes along with the listing and he said of Combs:

“In this age of self-promotion, Luke Combs is letting everybody else do the talking for him. That’s big in country music, which is all about sincerity and humility…Luke has both of those in spades. He realizes that being a star is not up to him: the people will confirm it.”
