Combs performs from "Six Feet Away"
Friday, April 17, 2020
– Luke Combs is not one to rest on his laurels. Despite having a steady flow of singles on the country airwaves, Combs offered a new song this week on social week, "Six Feet Away."
The song, which he wrote with fellow musicians Brett Cobb and Rob Snyder, was inspired by COVID-19. "Six Feet Away" talks of what is being missed, but has a light at the end of the tunnel message as well.
Combs sings on the chorus: "I miss my mom/I miss my dad / I miss the road / I miss my band / giving up (at) shaking hands / It's a mystery I suppose just how long this thing goes / There'll be crowds, and there'll be shows / There will be light after dawn / Someday when we aren't six feet apart."
Combs played the song during a livestream on Tuesday and posted it on Wednesday on social media. Snyder tweeted, "I felt the baby kick today for the first time and wrote a damn good song with two good buddies! I'll take it!"
Snyder penned "She Got the Best of Me," a hit for Combs. He is slated to release an album this June.

Five years ago, when beer-drinking, truck-driving-in-the-country country songs were en vogue, Luke Combs' full-length debut would have fit right in. In 2017, when pop music rules the country market and male singers are more likely to wear a stylish jacket instead of a flannel shirt, Combs is positively refreshing.
"Hurricane," the first single and first top five hit of Combs' career, sounds like a typical Jason Aldean ballad at the onset, but then builds into something more ...
