Luke Combs will soon be a father of two!
On Monday (Mar. 20), the country superstar and his wife, Nicole Hocking Combs, surprised fans with the announcement that they are expecting their second child, a baby boy.
The couple took to Instagram to share the exciting news with fans via a slideshow of sweet family photos that feature their 9-month-old son, Tex Lawrence, sporting a “big brother” onesie.
“Joining the 2 under 2 club! Baby boy #2 coming this September!!” Luke captioned the Instagram post, which was soundtracked by a brand-new song titled “Take You With Me.”
The sentimental track was co-written by Combs and his frequent collaborators James McNair and Rob Williford. It finds the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year crooning over his love for his son.
“Got a youngin’ of my own / he’s too young to understand it / when he gets a little older / watching the stage where I’m standin’ / he’ll know it’s about him / when he hears me sing I’ll take you with me / if it was up to me we’d do everything together / and when they’re young like that / those days they don’t last forever / so every chance I get you best believe I’ll take you with me,” Combs sings.
The couple welcomed Tex Lawrence on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19, 2022. They shared the news with fans on social media alongside a loving family photo.
“Welp he decided that Fathers Day would be a good time to show up. I couldn’t agree more. Me and @nicolejcombs are over the moon in love with this little guy,” he wrote at the time. “Mama and baby are healthy and we’re back home now with family. Life is good. Everyone welcome Tex Lawrence Combs to the world!”
Nicole also introduced Tex Lawrence to her followers with the same family photo and the caption, “It’s going to be hard to top this past Father’s Day,” she shared. “Welcome to the world, Tex Lawrence Combs. You are the best chillest angel boy and I’m so happy I was chosen to be your mom. These are the days 🤍”
“Take You With Me” is one of over a dozen tracks appearing on his forthcoming fourth studio album, Gettin’ Old, which arrives on Friday, March 24.
Gettin’ Old will feature 18 tracks, including “Growin’ Up And Gettin’ Old.” Also included on the much-anticipated project are several previously teased tunes such as “See Me Now,” “Joe,” “Tattoo On A Sunburn,” as well as the fan-favorite tune, “5 Leaf Clover,” and his infamous cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.”
The album will also mark Combs’ first project with outside cuts that the North Carolina native didn’t have a hand in penning. “My Song Will Never Die” and “Where The Wild Things Are” are two songs on the project that Combs didn’t write as well as his cover of “Fast Car.”
“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,” Combs previously explained on social media.
He continued, “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.”
While Gettin’ Old is set to be released as a standalone album, it appears to be a continuation, or second (more mature) chapter, of his previously released project, Growin’ Up. In fact, when placed side by side, the album covers connect as one cohesive image. The album art seemingly refers to the shift Combs has seen in his life, from his days in the bar scene, to a life that revolves around being home with family in a house on a hill.
Gettin’ Old Follows His 2022 Project, Growin’ Up
Growin’ Up was co-produced by Combs alongside Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton. The 12-track release was crowned Album of the Year at the 56th Annual CMA Awards in November of 2022.
Luke Combs will soon embark on a massive world tour that will visit three continents and 16 countries.
