It’s official – Luke Combs’ next radio single is “Does To Me,” featuring fellow North Carolina native, Eric Church.
The superstar announced the news on social media over the weekend in a heartfelt post that proves dreams really do come true.
“Super excited to let y’all know ‘Does to Me’ with Eric Church is going to be my next single on country radio,” Combs’ post began. “Ray Fulcher, Tyler Reeve and I loved the song when we wrote it back in 2016 and thought it sounded like a Church song. We joked about getting it to him, but at the time we had no way to get in touch with him.”
He continued, “A few years went by and we started thinking it may could actually work. I never wanted Eric to feel like it was something he had to be a part of, but thankfully he loved the song when I sent it to him and helped us take it to another level. Crazy to think this will already be my 8th single, which is already more than I could’ve ever dreamed of, but this is one of the coolest moments of our careers so far – a single with one of our biggest musical inspirations.”
Playing off the lyrics of the mid-tempo ballad, Combs closed his post writing, “That might not mean much to you but it does to me…”
“Does To Me” follows the success of the emotive “Even Though I’m Leaving,” which reached the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts in November, marking Combs’ seventh consecutive chart-topping single.
“Does To Me” appears on Combs’ 17-track sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get.
