Luke Combs Gets Rolling Stone Country Love

With half of the year already in the books, Rolling Stone Country has released their list of the 25 Best Country And Americana Albums Of 2017 So Far – and making that list is Luke Combs with his debut album This One’s For You. Luke’s album hit number-one on the charts when it came out last month, plus, “Hurricane,” the first single from it was a 2-week number-one hit.

Here’s the full review of This One’s For You from the Rolling Stone Country article 25 Best Country And Americana Albums Of 2017 So Far...

New artists’ debut albums are rarely so cohesive, engaging and altogether satisfying. But Combs hits all those marks on This One’s for You, a collection of 12 songs co-written by the North Carolina singer-songwriter. And lead single, the multi-week Number One “Hurricane,” isn’t even the best of the bunch. That honor falls to the stunning “I Got Away With You,” perhaps the only country song to ever name-check both the Louvre and Alcatraz in its chorus. Yes, Combs hits some familiar notes – the redneckin’ “Out There”; too-drunk-to-stand “Beer Can” – but This One’s for You, with its mix of Nineties twang and contemporary swag, is undeniably refreshing. Not since Eric Church’s Sinners Like Me has a debut LP so perfectly summed up the artist behind it.
