Director of Sports and Entertainment for Mohegan Greg Romeyn, presented Combs with the honor in a private ceremony backstage before his first show Friday night during his "The Middle of Somewhere Tour." Combs is the 38th inductee into the Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame.

The Walk of Fame awards recognize those who have made "significant contributions" to the success of Mohegan Sun as the Northeast’s premier entertainment destination. The Walk of Fame hosts names like Bon Jovi, Kevin Hart, KISS, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and more. All name-engraved plaques are permanently placed at the entrance to Mohegan Sun Arena.

The six-time Country Music Award winner, performed to 9,300 fans on both Friday and Saturday night. According to a press release, this was his third sold-out show at Mohegan Sun Arena since making his debut in Uncasville in 2019.

After his show on Saturday, Combs made a surprise appearance at Novelle’s Luke Combs after party where they gave away an autographed guitar to a fan.

Combs' "What You See Ain’t Always What You Get" album debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. He also made history as the first artist to have two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart – breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks.
