He can write the perfect drinking song oozing with 90’s country nostalgia. He can write a love song with the best of them. And he can do everything in between.
A hidden gem (if there’s such a thing as a hidden gem with him) on his new album, What You See Is What You Get, is all the way down at #16, “Nothing Like You.” Written by Luke, Drew Parker and Robert Williford, the song tells the story of a road warrior traveling the country, but missing his other half every mile along the way. The production on this song is damn-near flawless, allowing for Luke’s voice and that emotion in the lyrics to shine.
Luke Combs has so many potential #1’s on this album it’ll make your granny’s head spin.
“I’ve seen California and the fields of Oklahoma
From thirty thousand feet, can’t beat the view
Crossed the Mississippi, watched the mountains over Tennessee
Become a Carolina sky that was so blue
And still ain’t seen nothing like, nothing like you”
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
