Beyond the Grammy For Best Country Solo Performance

Luke Combs wrote “Forever After All” with Rob Williford & Drew Parker.

“I wrote this song obviously about my wife Nicole,” Combs said. “And it was the first song that I had written in our new house that we live in here in Tennessee. It just felt like we were taking a huge step forward with our relationship and with our life, and wanted to encompass that in a song.”

The song ended up going No. 1 and it quickly became a fan favorite. It was the sixth chart topper off of his record. The music video featured footage from Luke and Nicole’s beach wedding. The personal meaning behind the song and it acheieving such success meant the world to the country crooner.

“It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans,” he added. “We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there.”
