Luke Combs made a socially distanced appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday (Sept. 14) to perform his pandemic-inspired song “Six Feet Apart.”
With two of his band members accompanying him, the superstar delivered an impassioned performance of the song while seated outside in a wooded area.
Combs initially debuted the heartfelt tune earlier this year during a livestream, just one day after he co-wrote it with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder. “Six Feet Apart” boasts a message everyone can relate to in times like these as he looks forward to a time when things are normal again.
“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.
Combs’ performance comes as his latest single, “Lovin’ On You,” reached the top spot on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart this week while also spending its third week atop the Billboard Country Airplay chart. The song is the North Carolina native’s ninth consecutive No.1 single and continues his recording-breaking run at country radio.
On Wednesday (Sept. 16) fans can catch Luke Combs performing during the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards where he is also a three-time nominee.
Combs will release What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, a deluxe version of his 2019 album, on October 23. The new release will include the album’s 18 original tracks as well as five brand new songs.
