According to reports, Tracy Chapman is set to join Luke Combs to perform ‘Fast Car’ together for the first time ever during the 2024 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California.

This unprecedented link-up will undoubtedly serve as one of the highlights of the star-studded ceremony, with Luke Combs’ cover having emerged as one of his biggest hits to date. Combs’ version is up for the Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance.

Luke Combs covered Tracy Chapman's iconic hit as part of his 2023 ‘Gettin’ Old’ album.

The North Carolina native released his rendition of Chapman's 1988 classic as part of his 2023 album, Gettin’ Old, with Combs repeatedly underlining how much the track means to him.

The ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ hitmaker has explained in a number of interviews how ‘Fast Car’ was instrumental in fostering his love for songwriting. Combs has described the song as his “first favourite song probably ever. I remember listening to that song with my dad in his truck when I was probably four years old. He had a cassette, a tape of it and we had this old brown camper top F-150”.

In recent years, Tracy Chapman has kept a low profile, only performing in front of cameras three times since her final tour in 2009, which makes her prospective ‘Fast Car’ Grammys duet with Luke Combs all the more momentous.

After ‘Fast Car’ reached No. 1 at Country Radio last July, Tracy Chapman made a statement to Billboard praising Luke Combs’ version of her beloved song, , “I never expected to find myself on the country charts, but I’m honoured to be there. I’m happy for Luke and his success and grateful that new fans have found and embraced ‘Fast Car’”.

As a result of Combs’ cover hitting the top-spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, Chapman became the first Black woman to pick up a country No. 1 as the sole songwriter.
