NO KIDDING: FAST CAR at the Grammys Was a Real Hit

FAST CAR Tracy Chapman and Luke Combs

FAST CAR at the Grammys was a real hit. 

Many of us haven’t watched the grammys for years.  The event became a communist gathering with anti-American vitriol throughout.

Many of us didn’t watch the Grammys on Sunday night.

But this rendition of FAST CAR with Tracy Chapman and Luke Combs was brilliant.

Here is the story behind the story.

Tracy Chapman — who hasn’t performed live in years — just sang “Fast Car” on stage with Luke Combs at the Grammy’s.

The backstory behind this collaboration is incredible.

Combs’ first favourite song ever was “Fast Car”. He covered it in early 2023 as a country version and the song hit #1 on country charts in July.

Chapman owns the song’s composition rights and became the first black female to top the Country chart as a sole writer.

What did she think of the cover?

Chapman told Billboard at the time: “I never expected to find myself on the country charts, but I’m honored to be there. I’m happy for Luke….and grateful that new fans have found and embraced ‘Fast Car.’”

Combs honored the original version, which he first listened to when his dad popped a cassette in the car.

“You want to just be mega respectful of the original song,” says the 33-year old country singer, per CMT. “That’s why in [my cover], it’s, ‘work in the market as a checkout girl.’ I didn’t change that…I really wanted to just do the original version of the song.”

Them performing it together tonight is perfection.
