This One's For You Too
Luke Combs has gotten a lot of life out of his album "This One's for You," which includes his breakthrough hit "Hurricane," as well as the popular single "When It Rains It Pours." This deluxe edition includes five new tracks, many of which are just as strong as the original 12.

This One's For You
Five years ago, when beer-drinking, truck-driving-in-the-country country songs were en vogue, Luke Combs' full-length debut would have fit right in. In 2017, when pop music rules the country market and male singers are more likely to wear a stylish jacket instead of a flannel shirt, Combs is positively refreshing.

Before she even started her annual holiday season gig at the venerated club, Lori McKenna told the sold-out crowd she remembered holding a CD release party for her very first album, "Paper Wings and Halo" 18 years ago and was shocked when she found out that, too, was SRO. "I didn't have that big a family," McKenna joked,... »»»
