Luke Combs expands his wedding song portfolio with “Better Together,” which includes a laundry list of things that are paired well, all leading up to how he’d love to put her first name together with his last name.
The piano accompaniment is sparse, and I’m not sure it was the right fit for Luke’s very country vocal. He has a gruffness to his voice, but it’s just a rough surface over a pure country sound that meets somewhere in the middle between Garth Brooks and Ronnie Dunn.
This record calls out for, pleads for, begs for some fiddle and steel. Either or both would provide some additional warmth, and would contrast beautifully with his vocal. As is, this feels more like a piano-and-vocal demo than a fully finished recording.
