Combs finds salvation with "Joe"
The song was written by Combs, Erik Dylan and James Slater.
Combs said, "There have been some folks in my family that have struggled with alcoholism and addiction through the years. I've got buddies who live a sober lifestyle, and I'm sure y'all know someone who has struggled with these types of things, or maybe you yourself do. This song is really important to me for that reason."
"Our genre has so many songs about drinking and partying, hell, I'm probably one of the worst culprits of it. There's nothing wrong with that I don't think, but sometimes I wonder what someone in the crowd who doesn't drink or struggles with addiction is thinking or feeling when there's thousands of people around them screaming 'Beer Never Broke My Heart' or '1, 2 Many.' I've always wanted a song for those people to have for themselves. To have a song they can sing at the top of their lungs and feel like they're not forgotten. When Erik Dylan sent me the work tape of this a few years back, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. So, if you're reading this and this song speaks to you, I hope you love it. This one's for you."
"Joe" is the third song unveiled from " Gettin' Old." Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, "Gettin' Old" is Combs' fourth full-length album following "Growin' Up," 2019's 3x Platinum "What You See is What You Get" and his 4x Platinum debut, "This One's For You."
Ahead of the release, Combs has unveiled two album tracks: "Growin' Up and Gettin' Old" and "Love You Anyway."
Combs starts a world tour March 25 in Arlington, Texas.
