Just moments before being crowned CMA Entertainer of the Year at the 55th Annual CMA Awards, Combs took to the Bridgestone Arena stage to share the worldwide debut of a brand new song, “Doin’ This.” The heartfelt track serves as a personal reflection of his life and career.

“I’d be feelin’ on fire/ On a hardwood stage/ Bright lights like lightning running through my veins/ At the Grand Ole Opry or a show in some no-name town/I’d still be doin’ this/ if I wasn’t doing this,” he sings on the chorus. “It ain’t about the fame/ it ain’t about the fortune/ it ain’t about the name/ it ain’t about the glory/ I guess I’m sayin’ it’s always been about/ Having a Friday night crowd in the palm of my hand/ Cup of brown liquor/couple buddies in a band/Singin’ them same damn songs like I am now.” 

Combs has been performing the song live during his What You See Is What You Get Tour.
