Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen are two of the top country artists in the game right now, and while each has had their fair share of collaborative songs, they’ve never released one together.
During a recent appearance on the Wayne D Show with Nashville’s radio station, The BIG 98, Combs was asked if there has ever been talk between him and Wallen about getting into the studio together.
In a clip from the interview shared to social media, Combs can be heard saying, “I mean, we’ve kicked that can down the road a little bit and we’ve just never really landed on a song that I think that we both love that we wanna do, you know? I don’t think it’s outta the question at all. I think it would be awesome.”
Based on his promising answer, it sounds as though the possibility of the superstars recording a song together is not completely out of the question.
Several fans took to the comment section to show their support for this idea.
‘”The kings of country working together’ that would be insane 🔥🙌,” one user wrote while another said, “@morganwallen & @lukecombs this would be a DREAM for us to have this collab!!! We love y’all!! ❤️❤️”
Unfortunately, it might be some time until fans can get their hands on any sign of a song from these artists as Wallen just released his latest album, One Thing At A Time, and Combs has finalized and is preparing to unveil his brand-new album, Getting’ Old, on March 24.
The “Beer Never Broke My Heart” singer’s upcoming release was produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton and is due out via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville. With the unveiling of the new track list, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year revealed that he co-wrote 15 of the 18 tracks. The remaining cuts were penned by songwriters including Eric Church, Travis Meadows, Johnathan Singleton, Randy Montana, Dave Turnbull, and one cover, “Fast Car,” was written solely by Tracy Chapman.
He has already dropped three singles from the collection including “Joe,” “Love You Anyway” which debuted at #3 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart, and the leading track, “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old.” Combs has also confirmed that his next song titled, ‘Five-Leaf Clover’, will drop on St. Patrick’s Day in celebration of the luck-filled holiday.
As for Morgan Wallen, his latest project has continued to take over the charts since the day it dropped. On March 7, it was revealed that One Thing At A Time officially broke the record for “biggest US streaming week for a country album, with over 315 million in 4 days.” This feat means that he has surpassed Taylor Swift’s album, Red (Taylor’s Version).
Within the 36 tracks, the “You Proof” singer showed off his collaborative skills through three different tracks on his latest album – “Man Made A Bar” featuring Eric Church, “In The Bible” featuring HARDY, and “Cowgirls” featuring ERNEST.
Wallen will bring his new songs to the stage on his One Night At A Time World Tour, which kicks off overseas on March 15. From there, he will visit a total of 30 stadiums on the 63-show trek before wrapping up in October.
The trek, which will feature support from ERNEST and Bailey Zimmerman on all dates as well as HARDY and Parker McCollum on select dates, will visit 4 countries and 2 continents. Ticketing information for Morgan Wallen’s upcoming tour is available HERE.
Meanwhile, Luke Combs will soon embark on a massive world tour that will visit three continents and 16 countries. The trek, which will be hitting stadiums and arenas across the globe, is set to kick off on March 25 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and wrap up in London, England at The O2 Arena on October 19.
The world tour will visit 16 stadiums across North America, including Nashville’s Nissan Stadium, Kansas City’s GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium and more. Hitting three continents and 16 countries, the massive outing will also stop in Australia, New Zealand, U.K., Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, France and Belgium.
