Luke Combs covers some of the greatest country music songs in the genre often sharing his reimagined versions with fans via his social media. He is one of the best in the country music world right now and as we anticipate the release of his upcoming deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, we’re sharing some of our favorite songs covered by the superstar singer-songwriter.
“Austin”- Blake Shelton
Back in the beginning of his career, Combs would often cover the song that helped put fellow country superstar Blake Shelton on the mark, “Austin.” Fans can find clips of the singer belting out “Austin” even in 2017; however, earlier this year, Combs reminded fans that he can truly sing anything. His soulful rendition of “Austin” is arguably as good as Shelton’s original.
“Fast Car”- Tracey Chapman
After fans begged him to sing a full version of this song, Combs obliged, and his performance went viral. Combs’ cover is vocally-pleasing, yet effortless. He performed it most recently on one of his quarantine Facebook Lives, and truthfully, we could listen to it all day long.
“The Way I Talk”- Morgan Wallen
Fellow country singer, Morgan Wallen burst onto the scene with his true-blue country tune “The Way I Talk.” As if the stars were aligning, Wallen and Combs shared the stage back on Combs’ headlining tour, and supported one another, singing covers of each other’s songs. Wallen covered “She Got the Best of Me,” while Combs gave a soulful and stripped-down version of “The Way I Talk.”
“What Are You Listening To”- Chris Stapleton
Back in March, Instagram was swirling with the #DeepCutsChallenge. Morgan Wallen challenged Combs and in turn, he covered a song he believed deserved more credit, Chris Stapleton’s “What Are You Listening To.” It is safe to say, Combs’ cover was nothing short of extraordinary.
“Dive”- Ed Sheeran
Interestingly enough, Combs even covered pop-star and songwriter, Ed Sheeran’s song, “Dive” back in 2017. His rendition still pops up on the internet from time to time, even years later. Combs turns Sheeran’s song into a bluesy, goosebump-worthy country song. Combs even recorded the covers at Sound Stage Nashville, as part of a Spotify campaign.
“I Don’t Want This Night To End”- Luke Bryan
It’s hard to remember a time where Luke Combs wasn’t all over the charts and performing at every major venue, but back in 2011, Combs was just another young man, who loved country music. Here’s an old-school cover from the singer of Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night To End”. This throwback is just a reminder to all of us that we all have to start somewhere, and of course, that further proves that Combs was born to be a superstar.
As Combs continues to break his own records, we look forward to more new music from him as well as what classic hits he’ll surprise fans with by covering. Luke Combs’ deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get is set to release on Friday, October 23rd, and includes five brand new tracks.
