Since country artists can’t host concerts right now, they have started entertaining people with livestream performances. Brad Paisley, Garth Brooks, and Keith Urban are just a few of the many singers who have hopped online to share their songs with fans around the world.

On Wednesday night (April 15), Luke Combs joined the crowd by hosting a livestream concert of his own. He shared a few songs during the 17-minute concert, including his hit single “She Got the Best of Me” and a cover of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.”


But before all that, Combs opened the show with a song he wrote the previous day (April 14). He spoke to the audience about the song before he started singing:

I’m gonna play a song I wrote yesterday,” he said. “I wrote this with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder, two awesome guys… I might mess this up really bad, I don’t know, I’ve been practicing it all day but I’m kinda nervous about it to be honest. So, I hope you guys like it.”

Titled “Six Feet Apart,” the song was inspired by life in quarantine in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s quite emotional to listen to, and contains lyrics such as. “I miss my mom, I miss my dad, I miss the road, I miss my band. Giving hugs, and shaking hands.

Even though the song carries a sad tone, it also shares a message of hope. Combs sings about how he’s looking forward to the day life returns to “normal,” saying, “…and there will be light after dark, some day when we aren’t six feet apart.”
