  LUKE COMBS - The Man He Sees In Me - River House Artists/Columbia Nashville

Luke Combs can seemingly do no wrong.  From chart-topping singles to sold-out stadiums, the country music megastar is at the top of his game as a singer, songwriter, and performer, and millions of fans, critics, and media are paying attention.

With the impending release of his highly-anticipated album, ‘Fathers & Sons’ on June 14th, Combs is offering a final preview of the record with a brand-new tune.  “The Man He Sees In Me” is available now, both digitally and on all streaming platforms, via River House Artists / Columbia Nashville.

Written by Combs along with Josh Phillips, “The Man He Sees In Me” represents one of the most personal songs to date for the record-breaking artist, reflecting on his life and experiences with his sons. 

“To my boys, first and foremost, I will always love, you, no matter what,” Combs said.  “With this song, I want you to know that even though I’m not perfect, I try my hardest every day to be the best version of myself for you both.”

The lyrics are poetic, and Luke’s vocals are captivating and powerfully intoxicating as always, setting the vibe perfectly as he invites the listener into his soul and mind as he croons his way through the emotionally heart-warming and tearfully-vulnerable musical anecdote of joy, hope, and love.

“I hope he never finds out that I didn’t hang the moon

And I’ve never scared a monster out the closet in his room

One day between him leavin’ home and drivin’ on my knee

Maybe I’ll finally be, the man he sees in me”

The entirety of ‘Fathers & Sons’ were recorded live and centers around his life as a father.  It’s a star-studded lineup of musicians featured on the 12-track album, and one that promises to take his career even farther into the stratosphere.

His new radio single, “Ain’t No Love In Oklahoma,” is to be featured on the soundtrack for the new “Twisters” movie due out in July, while he is also the subject of a new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum set to open July 11.

In the middle of his monumental “Growin’ Up and Getting’ Old” stadium tour, the Grand Ole Opry-member and 11-time CMA, four-time ACM and six-time Billboard Music Award winner has been one of the biggest names in all of country music for the past few years and is showing no signs of slowing down.
