Luke Combs’ debut single, “Hurricane,” was No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for two consecutive weeks in May. The North Carolina native is the first solo male artist to reach No. 1 with his debut single since Darius Rucker in 2008 with “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.”
On the strength of “Hurricane,” Luke is dropping his debut album, This One’s For You, today (June 2). The 12-song offering, which was recorded in March 2016, features a dozen songs that Luke co-wrote.
“I think it’s a good synopsis of who I am,” says Luke to Nash Country Daily. “I don’t think there’s one track that sounds the same as another. It’s not in one lane. From track to track, it’s different every time. I wrote some of these songs over two years ago, so it’s been a long journey for these songs, and I’m excited for people to finally get their hands on them. We’ve got folks who have been to 30-something shows at this point. And they’ve heard stuff on the album a bunch of times, and they’re ready to be able to listen to it in their car or at home.
“I have a couple different favorite songs on the album. ‘Hurricane’ led to me having the opportunity to make the album, so I love that song. ‘I Got Away With You’ is probably my favorite written song on the album. It’s a little slower love song. Very broken down. We play one song live called ‘Honky Tonk Highway,’ and it closes the album out. That’s my favorite song to play live because it gets the crowd going.”
