If you have ever been in the military or anyone in your family has, then Luke Combs’ “Even Though I’m Leaving” will surely connect to you.
Released in 2019 as the second single off his album, What You See Is What You Get, the song will introduce you to a warm and sincere conversation between a father and son. It shows a child’s feeling of vulnerability whenever his parent is not with him by his side – at the same time, an elder comforting the young one that they are constantly together in spirit.
It comes in three different scenarios: when the son begs his military father not to leave to fight overseas; when the son became a young adult about to serve in the military, and in the final verse; when the son mourned for his father’s death.
Story Behind The Song
Even though Luke Combs may not be a father just yet, and has no personal parenting experience, he drew inspiration from his bond with his parents and his fond memories with them growing up.
Combs wrote “Even Though I’m Leaving” with Wyatt Durrette and Ray Fulcher in 2016, way before he had become a country radio mainstay. According to Combs, it was Durrette – the only father among the trio – who brought the idea for the song to the team. He was inspired by his son, who’s nearing his teenage years, that he wanted to write him a letter to let him know that he would always be by his side.
