"This One's for You" is the debut album of American country music singer Luke Combs. It was released on June 2, 2017, via Columbia Records Nashville. It includes the single "Hurricane".
He demonstrates his flair as a songwriter several times throughout this collection, with compositions such as “Lonely One,” “Be Careful What You Wish For,” and the radio friendly appeal of “One Number Away.” He shows a little bit of a Brad Paisley influence on the whimsical vibe of “When It Rains It Pours,” where one bad event leads to a sequence of events that make you wonder if things aren’t actually going your way after all.
Perhaps Combs’ greatest trait as a wordsmith comes in the more sentimental fare here. “This One’s For You” and the romantic “I Got Away With You” both have plenty of charm, and a sincerity that make you realize that Luke Combs is the real deal. But…
Maybe, just maybe, I had my mind made up before I listened to This One’s For You that it was going to be one way. Of course, as a critic / reviewer / journalist, I would never admit that. But, I will say that Luke Combs has effectively shown me up. So, there! In fact, I’m going to go celebrate that fact with another listen. This album is that good! --- soundslikenashville.com User Comments
