Luke Combs just released a studio version of the emotive “Six Feet Apart” and it’s just what the world needs right now.

Inspired by the current global health crisis and times of social distancing, Combs co-wrote “Six Feet Apart” alongside Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder. The superstar debuted the song during a live stream in mid-April, just one day after the trio wrote it.

The studio version is reminiscent of the acoustic version Combs’ debuted during the live stream but includes a more full-bodied sound with his band added in.

Lyrically, the song finds Combs detailing what he misses most about life before COVID-19. “I miss my mom, I miss my dad/ I miss the road, I miss my band/ Giving hugs and shaking hands/ It’s a mystery I suppose/ Just how long this thing goes/ But there’ll be crowds and there’ll be shows/ And there will be light after dark/ Some day when we aren’t six feet apart,” he sings on the chorus.

They say music is medicine and that’s certainly the case with “Six Feet Apart.” With people everywhere grappling over the loss of jobs, loved ones and the uncertainty of what’s to come, “Six Feet Apart” reminds fans that they are not in this alone.

Luke Combs is currently making his way back up the charts at country radio with “Does To Me,” is the latest single from his 17-track sophomore album, What You See Is What You GetThe song features fellow superstar Eric Church.
