Luke Combs Going, Going, Gone is #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, followed by ACC.
It’s Luke’s 15th Billboard Country Airplay #1.
Going, Going, Gone is the third single from Luke’s third LP, Growin’ Up, written by Combs, Ray Fulcher and James McNair.
“We’re sitting there; we’re trying to figure out what we’re going to write. And we had decided we were going to write Going, Going, Gone. And as we sat there trying to come up with stuff, I was just playing this riff and the riff really became the focal point of the song for me. I’ve always loved Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car, and no way is this song even close to as good as that one. But I’ve always loved how that riff immediately, you know, the second it gets played, you know what song it is, and you love it. And I think I wanted to try to kind of, you know, create something that was my own version of that.”
Going, Going, Gone was a five-week #1 in Canada on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Luke’s new 18-song album, Gettin’ Old, is coming out on March 24.
“This album is about the stage of life I’m in right now. One that I’m sure a lot of us are in have been through or will go through. It’s about coming of age, loving where life is now but at the same time missing how it used to be, continuing to fall for the one you love and loving them no matter what, living in the moment but still wondering how much time you have left, family, friends, being thankful, and leaving a legacy. Me and so many others have poured their hearts and souls into this record, and I hope you love it as much as we do.”

Luke Combs celebrated St. Patrick’s Day 2023 by releasing a fan favourite, 5 Leaf Clover.
“A while back my buddy Newdy, and I were looking around the clover plot at my house for 4 leaf clovers. I eventually found one, but shortly thereafter, he found a 5-leaf clover, and I thought to myself, Man, how lucky do you have to be to find a 5-leaf clover? Didn’t think too much of it at the time but wrote that down as a title in my phone. A few weeks later, I was writing with Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill, and it came up. It still wasn’t really anything that jumped off the page to me, but I shared the idea and guitar melody I had with them, and they loved it. We ended up writing the song that day.”
