Luke Combs Will Perform a New Song in Honour of Nicole Hocking on October 23rd, 2020.
Combs created a new song for his wife two months after they were married. From his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, the country artist released the song “Forever After All.”
The song’s lyrics featured such gems as,
“They say nothing lasts forever / But they ain’t seen us together / Or the way the moonlight dances in your eyes / Just a t-shirt in the kitchen / With no makeup and a million / Other things that I could look at my whole life / A love like that makes a man have second thoughts / Maybe some things last forever after all.”
Nicole Hocking’s “Beautiful Crazy” was written by Luke Combs for her in March 2021:
A few years after “Beautiful Crazy” came out, Combs told Hocking that he wrote the sweet song for her soon after they met.
Combs said on Lindsay Czarniak’s podcast The Artist and The Athlete that he wrote the song after they met, “probably like three or four months.”
“I wrote that song about my wife before we were even dating, and it ended up being the first dance at our wedding,” he said. “No other song could possibly be more meaningful to me than that one.”
He went on to say that he remembered the first time he played it for her, saying, “She really liked it. She always moves away from the attention she was getting at the time, which I get. If someone played me a song about me after three or four months, I’d probably feel pretty awkward. So I get it.”
He said it was a “”I’m not much of a ladies’ man, but that was a baller move for sure,” he said. But I really liked this one. It was something I had written maybe two days before I played it for her.”
