Great news, Luke Combs fans! New music is on the way and we are eagerly waiting for the day. After a two and half year wait, Combs finally announced his third studio album will be released on June 24. Yup, right in time for the summer, so grab your beers and get those boats ready!
The CMA Entertainer of the Year revealed the new album, Growin' Up, will include 12 tracks. He also showed the album artwork, featuring an illustrated bar alongside half his face and him wearing a hat with the name of the album written on it. His recent single, "Doin' This," which debuted at the CMA Awards in November 2021 is expected to be included.
Through Instagram, the country music singer shared, "Excited to share the album cover with y'all! Title of the album is Growin' Up and will have 12 songs. Can't wait for y'all to hear the full thing on June 24, but new song "Tomorrow Me" will be out...tomorrow."
The new project follows his debut album, This One's For You, and his second studio album What You See Is What You Get. Both albums were huge for the artist, as he earned multiple platinum certifications and both albums rest on the Top 5 of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Seven singles from What You See Is What You Get reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Combs has been teasing his fans, releasing snippets of unrelated songs on his social media. Combs teased "5 Leaf Clover," "Tomorrow Me," and "The Kind of Love We Make," on TikTok, which caused him to go viral.

The country star has been making headlines after he and his wife, Nicole Hocking, announced they were going to be a family of three. Speaking with Audacy's Rob + Holly at Tortuga Music Festival, he revealed that the couple has a list of names for their baby. "The name is tight-lipped, but we are in talks. There's a shortlist," he stated. He also teased that the name "rhymes with purple" and "rhymes with orange" saying there was a theme to it.
The "Beer Never Broke My Heart" singer continued, "If a damn alligator can come out, it wouldn't matter to me as long as it's healthy...I would teach him to sing, teach him how to eat a cheeseburger, and I could afford a good coach. I have been [plotting] the takeover of the Nashville little league in the next five years -- finding the best kids, building this unstoppable little league team."
The couple officially tied the knot in August 2020. They announced their engagement in November 2018.
