Luke Combs has joined acclaimed singer/songwriter Charlie Worsham on a new duet version of Charlie’s 2013 song “How I Learned To Pray.”

The track opens with Luke going down memory lane as he recounts his younger days.

“When I was sixteen, that set of keys/ Was a pair of wings, daddy, pretty please/ Can I take her out tonight?/ I swear I won’t get her over fifty-five/ With ‘Back in Black’ racing through my veins/ Last thing I thought was if flippin’ this thing/ Don’t get me killed/ I’m pretty sure my old man will/ And seein’ his face when the wrecker hauled my freedom away/ That’s how I learned to pray,” Luke recalls in the opening verse before the Charlie joins him in the chorus.

“It wasn’t in a church with a chapter and a verse/ Some preacher made sure everybody heard/ Or just some words somebody taught me to say,” they reflect.

“How I Learned To Pray” will appear on Charlie’s forthcoming star-studded EP, Compadres. Arriving October 13, the five-song set will feature collabs with Luke, Dierks BentleyLainey WilsonKip Moore and Elle King.
