Home and family are standard subjects of many a great country song. From Dolly Parton’s “My Tennessee Mountain Home” to Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me,” country artists often write about the comfort and familiarity that can only come from visiting your childhood home, whether in person or in your mind. You can go ahead and add Luke Combs’ unreleased song “Refrigerator Door” to the list of those great country songs that evoke instant nostalgia and longing for your childhood bedroom. Combs performed the song at a recent tour stop at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Ga.
Centered on a man reflecting on his past, Combs ruminates on how the postcards, photos, recipes for apple pie and mementos that make up a life well-lived can be found on something as simple as a refrigerator door. Accompanied by just an acoustic guitar, the sparse arrangement allows the heartfelt lyrics to take front and center.
Luke Combs is one of the fastest rising country artists in Nashville. His last two singles “Hurricane” and “When It Rains It Pours” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. His debut studio album This One’s For You was certified gold last year. He released his third single, the infectious “One Number Away,” earlier this year.
Thankfully, Combs isn’t shy about sharing new music with his fans. He recently performed another unreleased song, “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” at another tour stop.
