Luke Combs and Charlie Worsham are teaming up for a reimagined version of Charlie’s song “How I Learned To Pray,” which will be out everywhere in just two short weeks.
It was originally included on Charlie’s incredible 2013 Rubberband album, and was written by Charlie along with Jeremy Spillman and Ryan Tyndell.
And the new duet version is part of Charlie’s forthcoming Compadres project, the first batch of songs he’s put out since his 2021 Sugarcane EP.
Charlie is an incredibly talented musician, a former member of Old Crow Medicine Show, and has worked with some of the top artists in Nashville as a session musician, notably and more recently being part of Eric Church’s Heart & Soul triple record (though that was all recorded in the mountains of North Carolina, but you get the point).
Charlie shared the teaser of “How I Learned To Pray” with Luke over on Instagram, and I can’t wait to hear the whole thing:
“8/18 @lukecombs 👀 .”
I love the idea of reworking a tune that’s basically a decade old, and of course, bringing in his friend Luke will certainly help boost the streaming numbers and introduce him to a totally new and massive audience, which Charlie certainly deserves and has worked his ass off for.
