As a part of this week’s New Music Friday, Luke Combs is BACK with his highly-anticipated project titled Gettin’ Old.

The country sensation released the follow-up to his GRAMMY-nominated album Growin’ Up TODAY (March 24th) on all music streaming platforms, and the project truly has no skips.

Fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of Gettin’ Old, ever since the back-to-back CMA Entertainer of the Year revealed the cover art for the album on social media, along with an extremely vulnerable caption.

“This album is about the stage of life I’m in right now. One that I’m sure a lot of us are in, have been through, or will go through,” the North Carolina native wrote. “It’s about coming of age, loving where life is now but at the same time missing how it used to be, continuing to fall for the one you love and loving them no matter what, living in the moment but still wondering how much time you have left, family, friends, being thankful, and leaving a legacy.”

“Me and so many others have poured their hearts and souls into this record, and I hope you love it as much as we do,” Combs concluded.

The 18-track project kicks off with the track “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old,” ultimately serving as a bridge between the two albums. The project features 15 songs co-written by Combs, as well as a cover of Tracy Chapman‘s smash hit titled “Fast Car.”

While every song on Gettin’ Old is a soon-to-be hit, there is one track in particular that came with a VERY exciting announcement…

Just days prior to the album’s release, talented singer-songwriter took to social media to tease “Take You With Me” AND announce that he and his wife Nicole Combs are having their second child together! We are so happy for the beautiful couple ❤️
