The Story Behind ‘Tomorrow Me’ By Luke Combs

By  | 

Luke Combs has quite the hit with “Tomorrow Me.”

The country crooner wrote the tune alongside his frequent collaborator Ray Fulcher and Dean Dillon. Their collaboration all started because of mutual friends and a phone call.

“Tomorrow Me, I love this song. I wrote it with Dean Dillon, Ray Fulcher. Actually had got a call from, Ray had gotten a call from someone who worked with Dean and I guess he had asked to write with me and Ray.”


Somehow, which Luke Combs says is a super long story, they all ended up flying to the Bahamas.

“I had never spoken to Dean or met him before,” he shared. “And he was just gonna be on this boat when we got there. And he was and we ended up writing a song with one of our hero’s band. I mean, a guy who’s written some of mine and probably a lot of y’all’s favorite country songs ever.”

Dean Dillon wrote hits for the likes of George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Pam Tillis, Brooks & Dunn, Alabama, among countless others.

“I think Ray was going through some lady problems at the time,” Combs continued. “That’s where this idea came from was just that girl or that person that you feel like you can’t get away from.”

Luke Combs is gearing up to release his forthcoming record Growin’ Up. The album will be released on June 23 through River House Artists/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville.

Combs wrote “Tomorrow Me” along with the other tracks over the last two and a half years.

It made me have to put a pause on this album for a second,” Combs said. “But I’m just really stoked that it’s finally coming out. Working with Chip Matthews and Jonathan Singleton as a producer has been really great and I think that the fans are going to love these songs. I’m just excited to get them out and see what they think.”

The new record consists of twelve songs including Combs’ current single, “Doin’ This.”
