Watch Luke Combs Surprise Fans With Ed Sheeran’s Duo At London Show
What’s one of the best ways to cover a song on stage? Invite the guy who co-wrote it to join you, of course.
That’s what Luke Combs did on stage in London last weekend.
Combs, the reigning CMA Artist of the Year, led a country-tinged vocal on Ed Sheeran’s 2017 track “Dive” during his headlining show last Sunday at the O2 Arena. When the second verse began, he asked for Sheeran’s help, shocking viewers as the red-haired pop superstar came out of the secondary stage to join Combs.
Combs and Sheeran sang the rest of “Dive” together, hugging warmly after the performance.

‘DO THIS’:Luke Combs shares video of eight-year-old super fan as reason to ‘do this’
On Monday, Combs posted a video of the performance on social media. He wrote, “I’ve covered ‘Dive’ countless times but this was by far the coolest! Thanks to my mate @edsheeran for joining me on stage in London.”
The A-list duo performed when Combs headlined C2C: Country to Country, an annual spring festival that brings hitmakers from Nashville to the UK. This year’s lineup included Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Ashley McBryde and Scotty McCreery, among others.
And Sheeran is no stranger to singing with Nashville. A Tennessee Titans fan who previously lived in Music City, Sheeran has worked with Chris Stapleton and, of course, has a long history of collaborations with Taylor Swift.
