Let's be honest, the catalog of country love songs is muddy, yet Combs once again clears the way for a masterpiece.
Today Combs drops his gut wrenching ballad "Love You Anyway." In the heartwrteching tune Luke reminisces on love lost and reflects that he would do it all over, even if that means it ends in tears!
If Luke had a superpower, it would be seeing everyday things in a new light. The tale of love lost and reflection takes listeners through a gambit of emotion, opening the door for them to reflect themselves.
There's just some things that leave a man no choice
Like a compass needle needing its true north
Even if I knew the day we met you'd be the reason this heart breaks
Oh, I'd love you anyway
The song is like a beautiful poem set to the most classic of country sounds. Luke channels country greats in both his word and voice. Vince Gill, and Randy Travis come tp mind. The song is crafted with such care from first to last note.
“Love You Anyway” follows the just-released "Growin' Up and Gettin' Old" and will be one of the 18 songs on his next album, Gettin’ Old. Mark your calendars March 24th,
