Combs releases companion album to Growin’ Up
Just nine months after his 3x Grammy-nominated record Growin’ Up was released, reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs is back with a new companion album, Gettin’ Old, March 24th via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville. In advance of the release, lead track, “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old,” written by Combs, Rob Snyder and Channing Wilson, has made its debut.
The new album adds to yet another triumphant year for Combs, who is nominated for three awards at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards: Best Country Album (Growin’ Up), Best Country Song (“Doin’ This”) and Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“Outrunnin’ Your Memory” with Miranda Lambert). Combs will also perform during the live awards ceremony, which airs next Sunday, February 5th on CBS.
Reflecting on the album, Combs shares, “This album is about the stage of life I’m in right now. One that I’m sure a lot of us are in, have been through, or will go through. It’s about coming of age, loving where life is now but at the same time missing how it used to be, continuing to fall for the one you love and loving them no matter what, living in the moment but still wondering how much time you have left, family, friends, being thankful, and leaving a legacy. Me and so many others have poured their hearts and souls into this record, and I hope you love it as much as we do.”
Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton, Gettin’ Old is Combs’ fourth full-length album following 2022’s Growin’ Up, 2019’s 3x Platinum What You See is What You Get and his 4x Platinum debut, This One’s For You. Across these 18 new tracks, Combs continues to establish himself as one of music’s most authentic and powerful voices, as he reaches new lyrical depths exploring themes of family, legacy, love and personal growth. Full track list details to be unveiled soon.
Furthermore, Combs will kick off his massive World Tour this March with 16 North American stadium shows, all of which sold out immediately. With 39 shows across three continents and 16 countries, the record-breaking run is the largest tour ever for a country artist. The upcoming trek includes shows at Arlington, TX’s AT&T Stadium, Nashville’s Nissan Stadium and Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium, as well as stops in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, France and Belgium.
A member of the Grand Ole Opry and an 8x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music Award-winner, Combs is in the midst of a historic series of years. Most recently, he was named CMA Entertainer of the Year for the second consecutive year this past November and recently earned his record-setting, 14 consecutive No. 1 single with “The Kind of Love We Make.” Continuing his monumental run at country radio, Combs’ current single, “Going, Going, Gone,” is currently top 10 and rising.
