Luke Combs will try to score his unprecedented 10th consecutive No. 1 single—to start a career—with the release of “Better Together.” The new tune, which was penned by Luke, Dan Isbell and Randy Montana, will impact country radio on Oct .12.
“I wrote ‘Better Together’ in the mountains of North Carolina about three years ago,” says Luke. “I wrote it with Dan Isbell and Randy Montana. We started it there. I put a little clip of it on my Instagram, maybe a year and a half or two years ago, I’m not exactly sure, but people had always loved it. We ended up recording it and going with, you know, kind of a very stripped-down production of just me and piano. And I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.”
The sentimental single finds Luke crooning about complementary classics, “like a cup of coffee and a sunrise,” as references for how he and wife Nicole “just go better together.”
“Better Together” will be the fifth single from Luke’s 2019 No. 1 album, What You See Is What You Get. Luke is the first country artist in history whose nine singles have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart: “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “She Got the Best of Me,” “Beautiful Crazy,” “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” “Even Though I’m Leaving,” “Does to Me” and “Lovin’ on You.”
Luke Combs will drop a new deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, on Oct. 23. The new album will feature all 18 songs from Luke’s 2019 sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get, as well as five brand-new tracks: “Cold as You,” “The Other Guy,” “My Kinda Folk,” “Forever After All,” and “Without You,” featuring Amanda Shires.
