Charlie Worsham Releases ‘How I Learned to Pray’ With Luke Combs [WATCH]

Charlie Worsham has a new song out, and it features Luke Combs. The singer-songwriter just dropped “How I Learned To Pray,” a song he wrote with Jeremy Spillman and Ryan Tyndell, for his forthcoming, star-studded Compadres EP, out on October 13.

“I’m so excited for the world to hear me sing ‘How I Learned To Pray’ alongside my buddy Luke Combs,” Worsham said ahead of the song’s release. “The whole idea behind Compadres is to celebrate the friendships I’ve made through music over the past decade. I think fans will be able to hear how much fun we had making this project, and I think they’ll also hear how each of these songs tells a different part of my story.

“I’ve gotta give a shout-out to my Compadre-in-Chief, Jaren Johnston, for producing this project with me and pushing me to sing and play with more ferocity than ever before,” he added.

Compadres features a total of five songs, all collaborations. In addition to Combs, Worsham is also joined on the project by Elle King, Lainey Wilson, Kip Moore and Dierks Bentley. The record follows Sugarcane, Worhsam’s last project, which was released in 2021.

It’s fitting that Bentley joins Worsham on Compadres, since Worsham has been part of Bentley’s touring band. it was Bentley who also praised Worsham, after Worsham won the ACM Award for Acoustic Guitar Player of the Year in 2022.

“It couldn’t go to a better guitar player or a better guy,” Bentley told Worsham when the award was announced. “Everyone in this town knows what a great musician you are. I feel so lucky I get the chance to watch you in the studio working on my records. And I’ve also been hanging out with you at band practice, watching you play live. There couldn’t be a finer guitar player or human being, father, and a member of the Nashville songwriting and artist community.”
