After a huge year with his cover of Tracy Chapman‘s “Fast Car,” country star Luke Combs gave the folk icon the spotlight at the 2024 Grammys on Sunday (Feb. 4).

Taking to the stage early on in the telecast, Chapman opened the performance of Combs’ cover with her famed guitar riff, before launching into her song that she closed the 1989 Grammys ceremony with. Dressed in a simple black top with sequined sleeves, Chapman looked over to Combs, dressed in a simple black velvet suit, as the pair switched off verses on a sparse stage.

Throughout the emotive number, the camera showed the star-studded audience singing along with the pair, including Brandi Carlile, Jelly Roll and a visibly moved Taylor Swift standing up to join on the chorus’ line “I had a feeling I could be someone.”

Just before the performance, Combs tributed Chapman’s talent and impact on his life, saying that “Fast Car” was “my favorite song before I even knew what a favorite song was.” He added that he felt honored to be featured in the same sentence as her by performing her hit single. “Tracy is such an icon, and one of the best songwriters that any of us will ever be around,” he said. “It’s such a cool, full-circle moment for me — just to be associated with her in any way is super humbling for me.”

Combs’ cover of “Fast Car” — which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in July 2023 — was nominated for best country solo performance at Sunday night’s ceremony, which he ultimately lost in the pre-telecast to Chris Stapleton’s “White Horse.”
