If anyone ever asks what happened to rock & roll, the answer is Luke Combs.  He’s a modern country artist who is turning out hit songs like “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” which has been hanging around the top ten purchased iTunes songs for several weeks.   Two things to note: first, the music is pure rock and roll and second, it’s Luke Combs’ southern accent and the great song title that make it country.  The title reminds us of some other classic titles that only country music can produce:
