Luke Combs Releases ‘Love You Anyway’ From New Album [WATCH]

Luke Combs‘ “Going, Going, Gone” from his 2022 Growin’ Up album is in the Top 5 and climbing, but he already has a new song to share with his fans. The 32-year-old just released the romantic ballad, “Love You Anyway.” The song, written by Combs, along with Ray Fulcher and Dan Isbell, is from Combs’ forthcoming Gettin’ Old album, out on March 24.

Combs shares the story behind the song on social media, revealing it came from something he said during a concert in early 2020.

“Valentine’s Day 2020. I was playing a show and had dedicated ‘Beautiful Crazy’ to Nicole and said, ‘If you’re in here (the arena), I love you. If not, you know I do anyway,'” Combs writes. “Unknown to me, my buddy Dan wrote down ‘Love You Anyway’ as a title in his phone after hearing that, then he told me the story later that month when he and I were writing with my good friend Ray Fulcher.

“We loved the idea as a title and decided to write about loving someone so much that even if you knew from the beginning they were going to break your heart, you’d love them anyway,” he continues. “It came off very poetic and we wanted to find the words that could really give meaning to what we were trying to say, but as we say in the song, we didn’t know if there were deep enough words made for that.”

Combs calls “Love You Anyway” a “heartbreak and love song all in one,” once again inspired by his wife of more than two years.

“Long story short, me dedicating a song I wrote about Nicole ended up turning into another song about Nicole, and now three years later the song is finally out at the same time of year,” Combs says. “It’s a special one to me and I hope y’all love it as much as I do.”

Combs performed  Going, Going, Gone” at the recent Grammy Awards ceremony, admitting that it was a song he hesitated to even release.

“I’ve always loved this song, and I’ve always believed in it since we wrote it,” Combs said backstage at the Grammys. “It’s a little bit different than the things that we’ve done in the past, so I was kind of nervous about putting this song out and seeing what people’s reactions to it would be, just because it is a little bit left of center of what I usually do.”

Combs will embark on his World Tour in March 25 in Arlington, Texas, and will play in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and more, before wrapping up on October 19 in the UK. Riley GreenLainey Wilson, Flatland Cavalry and Brent Cobb will serve as the opening acts for some dates, with Cody Johnson and Lane Pittman taking over opening act duties for some of the overseas dates as well.
