“I spent some time before this crazy quarantine thing writing songs at the beach. We wrote this song, didn’t have the situation that we are in now in mind when we wrote it, but it feels like an appropriate song to play. We were sitting around down there and it was raining outside. It never rains at the beach. Nicole was like, ‘What do you do when it’s raining?’" he recalled his fiancee asking him. "I took that line and ran with it and this is what I came up with.”
He then went into his previous No. 1 hit “When It Rains It Pours” which he said was inspired in part by early Brad Paisley songs. Combs said he wanted to write something that was tongue-in-cheek when he sat down with his co-writers Ray Fulcher and Jordan Walker. He’d close his set with the promise of more livestream concerts and the song that started it all – “Hurricane.”
“Thanks for watching! I’m probably going to do another one of these next week. Probably every week that we’re quarantined I’ll do one these,” Combs said. “Just ‘cause I hope you guys like these and I like playing music and I probably don’t have much going on in the next couple of days that I can think of. I hope you’re staying safe out there.”
Jake Owen also shared some music with fans last night, including a cover of Combs’ “Even Though I’m Leaving.” Previously, Keith Urban and Hunter Hayes hosted similar sets on Monday (March 16).
