Song Lyric Sunday: Odd/Even.

Here we are again and it’s Sunday. Time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday. The prompt for this week is Odd or Even. I haven chosen to use even.

I have chosen a new artist and song to me. Luke Combs and a beautiful song Even Though I Am Leaving.

Jim Adams

Luke Albert Combs  born March 2, 1990) is an American country music singer and songwriter. Combs has released two albums for Columbia Nashville, which have combined to produce 10 singles, all of which reached number one on Billboard‘s Country charts.

Combs, an only child, was born in Huntersville, North Carolina, the son of Rhonda and Chester Combs, and moved to Asheville, North Carolina at the age of 8. He has been performing as a vocalist since childhood. While attending A. C. Reynolds High School, Combs played football and performed with multiple vocal groups, including performing a solo in the world-renowned Carnegie Hall. Later, he attended Appalachian State University where he worked as a bouncer at a bar before gaining stage time in that same bar. He played his first country music show at the Parthenon Cafe. With less than a month left in his senior year, he dropped out to pursue his country music career. He later moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a career in music.

Even Though I’m Leaving” is a song released in September 2019 as the second single to his second studio album, What You See Is What You Get. The song is described as a “soft, mandolin-infused country song” and “stone-cold tear-jerker” by the blog Taste of Country. Co-written by Combs along with Wyatt Durrette and Ray Fulcher, the song features a dramatic interaction between a father and son. In three different scenarios, the son, who is the narrator, pleads his father not to leave him. In the first verse, the narrator is a child who is afraid of monsters under his bed, while the second features the son as a young adult going off to serve in the military, and the final verse features the son becoming emotional over his father’s death.The song previously appeared on Combs’s 2019 EP The Prequel.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE.

    I lived in North Carolina for a few years, but I have never been to Asheville, although I heard it is real nice there. Luke Combs has a lovely voice. I have heard of children that had monsters under their bed, but mine was always monster free, maybe because my family always had dogs.
