Luke Combs has taken the country music industry by storm – perhaps by hurricane? The singer/songwriter continues to produce Number One hits, release-after-release. Maybe you’ve heard his No. 1’s- ‘Hurricane,’ ‘When It Rains It Pours,’ and his latest ‘One Number Away.’ Combs teases his fans over social media with acoustic videos of the countless songs that he writes or covers, leaving them completely enticed and wanting more. Well, he takes his fans’ wants/demands very seriously. He delivered a deluxe version of his first studio album ‘This One’s For You’ with five new songs titled ‘This One’s For You Too.’ Fans have been going crazy – perhaps beautifully crazy – over these new songs and we COMPLETELY understand why.
1.) ‘Houston, We Got A Problem’ – Written by Luke Combs, Randy Montana, and Jonathan Singleton.
Impression: This is for sure going to be another No.1 single from Combs, hands down. The fluidity of Luke’s voice paired with the hard rock guitars is so powerful you can’t help but get absorbed by the sound. The chorus is pure gold that embodies the new modern country concept, while still maintaining the twang and burl in his voice that represents the bluegrass side. Y’all need to listen to this immediately.
Favorite Lyrics: But I still feel like I landed on the moon, ’cause it ain’t got you. Houston, we got a problem
2.) ‘Must’ve Never Met You’ – Written by Luke Combs, Robert Williford, and Jonathan Singleton.
Impression: This is the perfect song about losing your soulmate and not being able to find that love again. In typical Luke fashion, the rock guitars and slamming verses keep the mood of the song rather rebellious instead of sad. He incorporates the cliche sayings such as “the grass is greener on the other side,” “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” and “time heals everything” to show his frustration in the things he is feeling.
Favorite Lyrics: And whoever said that “time heals everything and everything will be alright,” whoever said “it ain’t the end of the world and you’ll find somebody new” must’ve never met you…
3.) ‘Beautiful Crazy’ – Written by Luke Combs, Robert Williford, and Wyatt B. Durrette.
Impression: In the new Luke Combs sensation hit, the burly singer/songwriter slows it down a few notches and takes to a more acoustic guitar approach for this amazing ballad. Girls are swooning over this song because it takes on a whole new form of adoring your girl. The single highlights his voice in the best way possible and displays how versatile he can be. This single is on its way to becoming another No. 1 for him, as it sits at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Favorite Lyrics: When she gets that “come get me” look in her eye, well it kinda scares me the way that she drives me wild…
4.) ‘A Long Way’ – Written by Luke Combs, Larry McCoy, and Sam Grayson.
Impression: ‘A Long Way’ is reminiscent of the “good ole days.” Things seemed to last much longer and off of very little effort back in the day. It didn’t take much to have a good time and make the memories last. Combs does it again with another strong country-rock song that will make you want to jam out to it.
Favorite Lyrics: Back when things seemed just a little bit stronger. Back when the weekend lasted a little longer. I can’t tell you why they did, things seemed to never end back then…
5.) ‘She Got the Best of Me’ – Written by Luke Combs, Rob Snyder, and Channing Wilson.
Impression: In a different version than the acoustic one he released in 2016 off of the ‘Can I Get An Outlaw’ EP, Combs revisits this popular hit on his deluxe album. Luke writes about a heartbreak and how he deals with the pain through his music. His guitar takes the abuse and his fans listen to him pour his heart out about it. It has a much faster tempo, filled with rocker tendencies.
Favorite Lyrics: So you jump right in, ain’t afraid to fall and you give it all. She got the best of me, she broke my heart…
If you don’t take the time to listen to Luke Combs’ five new songs off of his deluxe album, then Houston, we got a problem. Ok, seriously with all Luke Combs’ puns aside, this artist is definitely on his way to absolute stardom. We predict he will be selling out headlining shows, this time next year. Until then, keep your eye on him and the charts to watch his music to continue to climb.
