Watch Luke Combs Get Real About Anxiety with Dan Rather

Luke Combs is just like the rest of us and he proves that on an upcoming episode of AXS TV’s The Big Interview with Dan Rather. While on the show, the down-to-earth country singer opened up about anxiety and OCD.

In the first look at this episode Combs looks back at his battle with anxiety saying, “First time I can remember is probably middle school kind of up to the end of college and I still have my moments here and there.”

His anxiety stems from a form of OCD called Purely Obsessional OCD that affects his thought process.

“Essentially, my version of messing with the blinds or straightening the carpet are kind of thoughts that I play over and over in my head… [For example] it’ll be something about my health… and it becomes this very obsessive thing that you literally can never have an answer to.”

Even though it’s been a struggle, it’s also helped the country singer get to know himself better. “It’s something that you learn about yourself, and arming yourself with the knowledge of exactly what’s going on is the most important thing, I’ve found.” 

The Big Interview With Dan Rather airs every Wednesday at 7 PM CST only on AXS TV. This particular episode with Combs airs on Jan. 13.
