Luke Combs has become a household name, rising to superstardom in just a few short years in the mainstream country music industry. Throughout his blossoming career, he has secured multi-platinum albums, awards, and of course, nine consecutive number-one singles. Combs’ truly doesn’t have a bad song! We thought it would be fun to look beyond the hits and reminisce on some of our favorite deep cuts from the singer-songwriter’s projects. Check out the list below.
“This One’s For You”
“I told you all I’d write you a song / Pour my heart in the melody / To keep you singin’ along”
It is hard to believe that this title track off his debut record wasn’t a single! The song is a beautiful thank you letter to all that have helped him get to this point in his life. The fact that Combs took the time to create something so sentimental and touching for his loved ones, just shows how humble (and talented) he truly is.
“Must’ve Never Met You”
“I guess whoever said that grass is greener / Musta never seen the other side / What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger / Sure sounds like a lie”
This heartbreaking break-up song is truth-telling to its finest. He acknowledges that all the age-old adages about break-ups are false, admitting that the dissolution of a relationship that meant this much to him is as hard as can be. This song is a gem on his debut record!
“What You See Is What You Get”
“I’m a midnighting, backsliding / Getaway-car-driving / Running away with your heart / I guess be careful what you wish for, is all I meant when I said / What you see is what you get”
His relatable every-man mentality is fully present on the title track of his sophomore record. The no bull-shit song is exactly what we have come to love and expect from this bonafide superstar.
“I Got Away With You”
“Now the Mona Lisa’s hanging in my house / I bust out of Buckingham with the crown jewels / And I got away with you”
This song proves why Combs is a trailblazer in country music right now. The lyrics are remarkable and charming, showcasing his wit and knack for story-telling. I truly cannot think of another song like this, which makes it unique and enticing, solidifying its spot on this list.
“With all those pictures hanging side by side / Forgotten memories / From another time / AN all the places that I’ve been before / Couple magnets, recipes, and Polaroids / Yeah, but that say life on the ‘frigerator door”
Talk about touching! “Refrigerator Door” was an instant fan-favorite on his sophomore release. The sentimental tune is centered around a man reflecting on physical moments from his past. It is a beautiful and heartfelt tune that deserves all the accolades.
“Blue Collar Boys”
“And we like cold keg beer and fixin’ up trucks / Old bird dogs and the woman we love”
No ‘Luke Combs’ list is complete without a fun and live-show ready jam! “Blue Collar Boys” is just that. The song is an ode to everything Combs’ is and was. He pays homage to all the blue-collar hard-working men and women out there.
