It’s been nearly five years since Luke Combs released “When It Rains It Pours” but it appears some fans still have a few questions about a few of the lyrics within the chart-topping hit, specifically the line “I bought two 12-packs and a tank of gas with it.” 

On Monday (April 18), a Twitter user named Kolby Moore took his conundrum to the social media platform to address Combs himself.

“In the song ‘when it rains it pours’ why didn’t @lukecombs just buy a 24-pack instead of two 12 packs? Just curious,” Moore questioned. 

Less than two hours later, Moore got an answer from the CMA Entertainer of the Year himself. 

“Two different kinds [of] beer? It was on sale? You’ll never know,” Combs replied. 

Several fans joined in on the conversation after Combs chimed in. 

“Maybe it was easier to carry,” reasoned one Twitter user, while another said, “One for right now and one for later.”

While fans will “never know” the real answer, one thing is for sure. Almost five years after its release, “When It Rains It Pours” is still a jam. According to the official RIAA website, the song has been certified 4x platinum for sales and equivalents of more than 4 million units.

The track was co-written by Luke Combs, Ray Fulcher and Jordan Walker and appears on Combs’ debut album, This One’s For You. To this day, it remains a staple in Combs’ set list.

It was released in June of 2017 and later topped both the Billboard Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs chart. 

Luke Combs is gearing up to release his highly anticipated third studio album on June 24. Additional details about the project, including the tracklist, have yet to be revealed.
