According to Appalachian State University Head Football Coach, Shawn Clark, “The Way I Talk” has never sounded better than in the Luke Combs‘ rendition, which substitutes Morgan Wallen’s line, “gets louder when I’m cheering on the Volunteers” to “gets louder when I’m cheering on the Mountaineers.”
And after App State’s massive upset over the number-six-ranked Texas A&M yesterday, the song seems especially fitting with Luke’s new lyrics.
The historic victory by the Mountaineers is coupled as their second win over top-10 ranked college teams, and serves as one in a series of three SunBelt victories over Power Five teams in match-ups this weekend alone.
And don’t think this stunning athletic performance was lost on Luke Combs, the former Appalachian State student tweeted out yesterday:
The cover, compiled with footage of the App State team and the beautiful campus, and Luke Combs himself repping the university’s attire, is the backdrop for what every Appalachian State fan is feeling post-College Station win.
And as an alum of Appalachian State myself, I’ve got to agree with Coach Clark…this song has never sounded better.
