Luke Combs’ new wife-inspire song, “Forever After All,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart (streaming, sales and airplay-based) this week. The new tune also debuted at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking the highest entrance ever for a male country solo artist.
The song is one of five brand-new tracks featured on Luke’s new deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, which also includes all 18 songs from the digital version of Luke’s 2019 sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get.
The new tune features Luke sweetly crooning about his wife, Nicole Hocking: “They say nothin’ lasts forever / But they ain’t seen us together / Or the way the moonlight dances in your eyes / And I know they’ll be that moment / The Good Lord calls one of us home and / One won’t have the other by their side / But heaven knows that that won’t last too long / Maybe some thing last forever after all.”
After dating for four years, Luke and Nicole tied the knot on Aug. 1 in Florida. Nicole was the muse for Luke’s No. 1 single “Beautiful Crazy,” as well as “Better Together.”
