2020 ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee, Luke Combs went live on social media last night to perform a few songs for all his quarantined fans.
The first song of his short set was “Lovin’ on You” from his most recent album, What You See Is What You Get. Although some Facebook listeners couldn’t hear it due to audio issues, Combs hit every extended note perfectly, sounding like it was straight off the record. After that, he told his audience that he had just written a new song yesterday with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder. Although he was a bit wary about debuting it so early, after practicing all day he felt the over 20 thousand people watching deserved to hear it. “Six Feet Apart” is about the things he misses during quarantine life and the first things he’s going to do when it’s all over. Combs spreads some positivity at the end of the chorus with the lyrics “It’s a mystery I suppose, just how long this thing goes, but they’ll be crowds and they’ll be shows. There will be light after dark, one day when we aren’t six feet apart.”

Next, he performed one of his biggest hits and concert setlist staples, “She Got the Best of Me”. To end the night he performed a cover of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”. Not knowing what to expect coming from one of the more traditional country artists, this blew us away. Combs and his powerhouse vocals delivered a stunning acoustic version of the chart-topping hit from 2006. Combs admitted he used to sing this song during soundcheck at his live shows.
While many of us are going through difficult times, we turn to music and use it as an escape from our real-world hardships. It’s so great that artists such as Luke Combs can utilize the technology we are given to bring live music back into our lives. We look forward to many more mini-live stream shows from country artists alike!
