Review: Luke Combs breaks new ground


Luke Combs, an already successful country music singer, has just released his fourth album, “What You See Ain’t Always What You Get.”

Combs’ new album includes 18 tracks and five brand new songs. 

One of his new songs, “Forever After All,” has recently become the biggest first day stream of a country song. The album itself has become the biggest first day stream for a country album, also reaching number one on Apple Music U.S. Top Albums and Songs chart. 

Combs recently became the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at number one on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. 

With a chance to make history, Combs thanked his fans, family and support system on social media for all the love he has received since dropping his new album.  

In a recent interview, Combs talked about the single “Forever After All.”

“It was the first song I wrote in my house in Tennessee with Rod Willford and Drew Parker,” he said. “This is a song we have been trying to hold back and not play but we knew people would like it. So it’s nice to have people finally get the chance to hear it.” 

Combs described how the song is a continuance of the love story he has sung about in songs like “Beautiful Crazy” and “Better Together,” which fans went crazy over.  

Combs dedicated this song to his wife, Nicole Hocking.

A native of North Carolina, Combs has been in the music industry for six years and it appears he has barely scratched the surface for his career.  

One of Combs’ biggest highlights of his career was getting inducted into the Grand Ole Opry back in 2019 by John Conlee, Chris Janson and Craig Morgan.
