Country singer Luke Combs has released a studio version of his lockdown-inspired song, 'Six Feet Apart'.

Luke co-wrote the song with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder and originally debuted the song last month during a livestream concert.

However, due to demand, the song has now been rerecorded and released with a higher production value.

The song is about life during quarantine, missing family and of course... observing social distancing.

Luke, 30, said: "New song I wrote with Brett Cobb and Rob Snyder called 'Six Feet Apart'.

"It's about current times and us looking forward to the day all of this is over. I hope ya'll like it."

During the song, Luke sings: "I miss the road, I miss my band, giving hugs and shaking hands.

"It’s a mystery I suppose, just how long this thing goes."

It comes after Luke released his album, What You See Is What You Get, which debuted at number one on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart last November.

Luke has released two albums for Columbia Nashville, which have combined to produce seven singles, each of which reached number one on Billboard's Country Airplay chart.
