Luke Combs recently shared a stripped-down performance of a brand new, unreleased song called “Ever Mine” and fans are going crazy for it.
The country ballad is a bit different than anything the CMA Male Vocalist of the Year has released thus far, proving there’s more to the “Beer Never Broke My Heart” singer than meets the eye.
“Ever Mine” tells the story of a soldier who leans on his memories of his wife to get him through his deployment. The song was written in the form of a letter and finds the service member confessing, “I know not yet when I’ll return, or if I ever will.”
No matter the outcome, however, he professes, “I’m ever yours, and you’re ever mine.”
Combs co-wrote the song alongside Hailey Whitters and Charlie Worsham during a writing trip in the Florida Keys. Worsham detailed his experience on the songwriter’s retreat and shared the story behind the song in a recent Facebook post.
“Luke. myself, and Hailey Whitters penned three tunes in three days. This was the first one we got,” Worsham explained of “Ever Mine.” “I credit my wife Kristen with any contribution I might’ve made to this one, as ‘ever mine’ is a phrase I learned from watching Sex and the City with her.”
Worsham went on to praise Combs and express his gratitude for the country superstar.
“I returned to Nashville with an even greater admiration and respect for Luke, and it was simply wonderful to meet Nicole Hocking and their sweet pup Jojo.”
He continued, “Maybe y’all know this about Luke and maybe you don’t, but I think most, if not all, of the co-writers on his songs, especially his hits to date, are writers who themselves are experiencing their first number one, or their first major recognition with a cut by a major artist. I just think that’s the coolest thing in the world. Mad respect for Luke for sharing his stage and for lifting up so many others with his success. I am grateful to be in that good company. Hope y’all enjoy this song. Can’t wait to see what happens next.”
There’s no word on if or when Combs will share a studio version of “Ever Mine.” In the meantime, fans can enjoy his acoustic performance in the clip above.
