After months of teasing the reflective track, “The Man He Sees In Me,” Luke Combs has announced that he will finally be unveiling the full recording on Thursday, June 6 at 3 PM CT. 

The country star first began teasing “The Man He Sees in Me” at the start of the year while watching his 10-month-old son, Beau, and almost 2-year-old son, Tex. Fans quickly fell in love the wholesome nature of the storyline which finds Combs reflecting on how he’s seen in the eyes of his children. As a result, he continued to keep fans updated on the song’s progress and at once point asked his listeners, “Is this heading in the right direction, y’all?”

Combs finally took to social media to share the exciting news with fans on Tuesday, June 5, using the handwritten note addressed to his sons that also sums up the heartfelt intentions behind the song. In the message, he vows to be the best dad he can be, while also admitting that not every step of the way will be perfect. 

“To my boys, first and foremost I will always love you, no matter what,” he begins. “With this song I want you to know that even though I’m not perfect, I will try my hardest everyday to be the best version of myself for you both. I’ll make mistakes along the way and some days you’ll be sick of your old man I’m sure but dang we’ll have some fun too.”

He concludes the letter by sharing his excitement for the future ahead as he continues to watch his boys grow, and adds that he hopes he will get to do the same with his grandkids one day. 

“I can’t wait to see what you both turn out to be like and I hope someday down the road I get to watch you and your kids do the same. Love, Dad.”

Is Luke Combs Working On An Entire Album Of Dad Songs?

This is definitely not the only “dad song” that Luke Combs has in the works. He has teased several other songs that follow the same theme, including “Remember Him That Way,” “Take Me Out To The Ballgame,” “Huntin’ By Yourself” and “Plant A Seed.”

With these new songs, fans have been predicting that the country star is slowly building up to an entire album of dad songs and he recently hinted that the suspicions could be true.  

Just a few days ago, Combs responded to a comment by a fan that read, “new album full of dad songs please.” While he didn’t say a word in the video message, he pointed up to the pleading words and gave a nod of approval. Plus, his caption further hinted that the project is in the works as he wrote, “Honestly not a bad idea…”

Once confirmed, the forthcoming new collection will follow the “Fast Car” singer’s latest album, Gettin’ Old, which arrived on March 24, 2023. The fan-favorite project features 18 tracks, including “Growin’ Up And Gettin’ Old,” “Tattoo On A Sunburn,” “5 Leaf Clover,” the GRAMMY-nominated “Fast Car” cover, “Where The Wild Things Are,” and more. 

Luke Combs is currently in the midst of his record-breaking 2024 Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old stadium tour. The successful 2024 trek is set to continue with back-to-back shows at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium on June 14 and June 15, followed by East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium on July 19 and July 19.
