Luke Combs has been taking advantage of the fact that hunting season is still in full swing, and while this means he’s likely spending a good amount of time away from his family, he’s making sure his wife and kids still feel all the love. 

A Sweet Gesture

The country star’s other half Nicole recently took to her Instagram stories to show off one of his sweet gestures which included leaving a gorgeous bouquet of flowers displayed on the table. 

Underneath the flowers was a handwritten note that read, “I love you babe. I miss you and the boys so much and I can’t wait to be home with y’all.”

Hunting With Ray Fulcher

Meanwhile, Combs has been using his Instagram stories to keep his followers updated on today’s hunting trip with fellow singer/songwriter, Ray Fulcher. In his first clip of the day, the “Love You Anyway” singer was seen sitting patiently in a tree stand while explaining that the pair didn’t have very much success the day prior and were hoping for better results today.

“I’m gonna be real honest with you, yesterday afternoon, awesome deer walked out. Probably 140” 8 point and your boy missed ‘em. A hundred percent confident in the shot, but rifle was off and it was the first deer I’ve ever missed. Not great, but you know, sometimes you’ve got to learn the hard way,” he shared. 

So far, he has stuck to his word and continued to keep fans updated with glimpses into their day. In the following clips, he and Fulcher decided to venture out of the tree stand after once again having a less than successful trip. Lastly, he made sure to join the trend of “fit checks” by showing off his Columbia brand boots, the “Little Debbie” cap he got off a sponsored post on social media, and his Mossy Oak camo sweatshirt and pants. 

Combs didn’t miss an inch of his look, making sure to also include his watch, his “balding” hair and a brief rundown of Fulcher’s matching hunting attire. 

“Walk-in Fit Check. I think this is a thing people do,” he wrote jokingly.

Luke Combs Snares A Sneak Peek Of An Unreleased Song, “Plant A Seed”

A few days prior Combs showed fans a glimpse into what his days look like when he’s at home, balancing his dad duties with his songwriting. The video found him strumming his guitar and keeping an eye on their two young boys, Tex Lawrence and Beau Lee, while Nicole took some time to herself. 

The song he was playing is an unreleased tune called “Plant a Seed,” which he explained was written “a while back” by Wyatt McCubbin with Rob Snyder and Jeff Hyde.

“Last night it was in my head and I couldn’t sleep so I got up and messed around with it for a few hours. Been singing it to myself all morning and as I watched the boys while Nicole got a shower in, I recorded this,” he wrote in the caption. 

Through Comb’s acoustic delivery, it quickly became clear that the song’s message revolves around how life can go by in the blink of an eye, especially for a dad like Combs who’s watching his kids grow more and more each day. 

“Time ain’t always your friend / It starts slow and gets faster towards the end / So fill up your heart with love / Pass it on before you go / And thank the man upstairs that you were there to plant the seed and watch it grow,” he sings on the chorus. 

Combs went on to apologize for “all the dad songs” he’s been recording as of lately but admitted it’s just a reflection of “where I’m at these days.”

“I couldn’t be happier about it. A lot more songs to come soon,” Combs hinted at the end of the caption.
