Luke Combs Announces New Album, ‘Fathers & Sons’

Luke Combs is fully into his dad era. The 34-year-old announces the release of a new album, Fathers & Sons, 12 songs that celebrate his relationship with his two sons, Tex, who turns two later this month, and Beau, who was born last August.

Combs already announced that he was releasing “The Man He Sees in Me,” which we now know is the debut single from his next record. Combs shared the news of the project on social media.

“Excited to announce my new album Fathers & Sons will be out NEXT Friday, June 14,” Combs writes. “Track 7 – ‘The Man He Sees in Me’ is out now! I can’t wait for y’all to hear the full album next week and hope y’all love this project as much as I do.”


Ahead of the release of “The Man He Sees in Me,” Combs shared a heartfelt letter he wrote to his two young boys.

“First and foremost I will always love you, no matter what,” Combs writes. “With this song, I want you to know that even though I’m not perfect, I try my hardest everyday to be the best version of myself for you both. I’ll make mistakes along the way and some days you’ll be sick of your old man I’m sure, but dang we’ll have some fun too. I can’t wait to see what you both turn out to be like, and I hope someday down the road I get to watch you and your kids do the same. Love, Dad.”

Combs is currently headlining his Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old Tour, but his primary role is still being a father to his two boys, whom he shares with his wife, Nicole.

“I’m lucky to get to spend three or four days a week at home with the kids,” Combs tells Taste of Country. “We play two nights a week, so the rest of the days I’m home with them. That’s what I’m doing. I go out and play some shows and come home and make breakfast and lunches and naps and diapers.”

Combs will soon be honored with a new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame. His entirelife and career will be the subject of the new Luke Combs: The Man I Am exhibit, scheduled to open on July 11 and remain open until June of 2025.

“Once I decided I wanted to do music as a career, it didn’t matter if it was for 100 people or 1,000 people, I just wanted to be playing country music for anyone who would listen,” Combs said when the news was announced. “If I could have enough fans to call it a job, I was set. Other than that, I never dreamed of being featured in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, much less having my own exhibit; that was beyond my wildest dreams.

“But honestly, it’s all a credit to my fans, family, songwriters and team,” he continued. “I have only made it to where I am today because of them, and this honor is one of my most humbling yet. At my core I love country music and this exhibit is as prestigious of an honor as it gets.”

Combs’ latest single, “Ain’t No Love in Oklahoma,” is out now. The song is part of a star-studded soundtrack from the upcoming Twisters film, which also includes music by  Jelly Roll with Alexandra KayKane BrownShania TwainThomas RhettMegan Moroney and more.
