Luke Combs is celebrating his southern roots with a rowdy unreleased track that’s guaranteed to get you fired up.
The country superstar shared a video clip on Monday (July 19), which acts as the official hype video for Southeastern Conference (SEC) Network. The tracks not only pays tribute to Combs’ Carolina roots but also gives nods to the SEC football teams, including the Florida Gators and then others within the lyric “Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia, come and find us.”
While the clip may be the official hype video for the SEC Network, we really hope the song will appear on Combs’ forthcoming third studio album as it will quickly become the hype soundtrack to Combs’ fans lives, especially those in the South.
“Way down where the sun shines hotter / dogs on the porch / gators in the water / way down, down in Alabama / muddy Mississippi, swamp Louisiana / hold it in down from Texas to Missouri / from the Arkansas hollers and the grass in Kentucky / to the blue skies in Carolina / Florida, Tennessee and Georgia come and find us,” Combs sings in the unreleased song’s chorus. “Got a little dirt road dust running through our blood from the never heard-of-it hometown / got a can’t quit heart and some take it too far / and a whole lot of never back down / ’cause we’re no doubt gonna put a little South On Ya.”
The video ends with a reminder that “SEC football returns September 2nd.”

Additionally, Combs officially began working on his forthcoming third studio album in early March 2021, which he announced on his 31st Birthday. And although he hasn’t shared an official release date for the album yet, he has been teasing fans with updates often on social media, including sharing songs that could potentially make the album. He’s shared songs such as “Five Leaf Clover,” “See Me Now,” “Ever Mine,” “We Still Drink Beer,” “Good Ol’ Days” and many more.
Combs’ upcoming new project will be the follow-up to his chart-topping, 2x Platinum 2019 album, What You See Is What You Get, and the 2020 deluxe edition of that dubbed, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get.
While an official release date hasn’t yet been announced, the country superstar hopes to have it out by the Fall of 2021.
“I mean, I’m going into the studio one more time. We should be done.. by then I think we’re going in this month, I mean I guess it’s June now and so we’re going in this month to do some more stuff,” Combs previously told Bobby Bones. “Once we get all those sorted, I don’t fall probably, I would hope. I guess it all just depends on some strategy involved in that release date, but I think it’s probably fall I would hope.”
