Earlier this morning, Luke Combs tweeted the following:

Of course everyone was fully on board.

He followed that up saying he would release the track list for the new deluxe album AND release “Without You” this Friday morning.

“Without You” was written as a thank you letter to all the people that helped Luke along the way – his family, wife Nicole, and of course the FANS. He’s played it live a few times, which you can watch below.

“I’m just very thankful for what I get to do every night… I’ve always been someone who I feel like has been pretty aware of how blessed I’ve been in the last few years and I feel like there are so many people that I have to thank for that so I always try to write songs for those people… I wanted to thank my parents and my fiancee and last but certainly not least, I wanted to thank you guys because I wanted ya’ll to know that it doesn’t matter how many trophies sit in the house or how many number one songs I have, if nobody buys a ticket and comes in here tonight, then all of us stage don’t get to do what we love to do… this is a new one, it’s called ‘Without You.’”

“Without You” lyrics:

Dad sold every record he ever owned
Floyd and Zeppelin, Beatles, Stones
A lifetime of music gone just to get me through
Momma always had her a second job
Gone with the sun until six o’clock
Whatever it took to get by she was gonna do
Didn’t dawn on me back then but now I see
Without them, I wouldn’t be me

When I’m up here on this stage
The spotlight’s on my face
But I see you
Sure it’s me behind this mic stand
It’s me strumming this Gibson
It’s me they love to give the credit to
But me don’t mean a thing without you

You make sacrifices every night and day
Never hear the crowd scream your name
But there’s a smile and a hand to hold when the show is through
I’d give it all up just to keep your love
But you wouldn’t let me because you care too much
About watching me watch my dreams all come true

When I’m up here on this stage
The spotlight’s on my face
But I see you
Sure it’s me behind this mic stand
It’s me strumming this Gibson
It’s me they love to give the credit to
But me don’t mean a thing without you

You worked overtime to buy those tickets
The gas, the beer and the babysitters
Just to spend one night with your baby at a country show
Paid twenty damn dollars for a place to park
Got in line early to grab your spot
So you deserve every word, every line of your favorite tune

When I’m up here on this stage
The spotlight’s on my face
But I see you
Sure it’s me behind this mic stand
It’s me strumming this Gibson
It’s me they love to give the credit to
I’m just trying to give the credit where credit’s due
Because me don’t mean a thing without you
Without you
