Luke Combs surprised fans with the debut of an unreleased song on Thursday (April 9), sharing an acoustic performance of the track “Used to Wish I Was” across his social media channels.

“Lots of things I wanted to be growing up, but now I wouldn’t want to be anyone else but me,” he captioned the clip. “Hope y’all like it and can relate!”

The song finds the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year reflecting on the past, admitting all the things he wished he would become only to confess he’s happy things didn’t turn out the way he originally hoped they would.

“When I was sixteen, I had running back dream that never did run too far /Thought I was gonna be number three one day, ’til I wrecked my old man’s car/ I almost finished college but I ain’t cut from that cloth/ I used to wish I was, but I’m glad I’m not,” he sings in the first verse.
