Charlie Worsham has dropped his highly anticipated new collaboration with Luke Combs, ‘How I Learned To Pray’, which will appear on Worsham's upcoming Compadres EP.
The soulful, faith-billed ballad was originally released as a solo cut on Charlie Worsham's acclaimed debut 2013 album, Rubberband. Fans are celebrating the addition of Luke Combs, in the hope that it gives the evocative track a chance to reach new listeners.
The revamped song is being accompanied by an official music video, which will be given a blockbuster premiere across CMT and the Paramount billboards in New York City's iconic Times Square.
‘How I Learned To Pray’ is a beautifully sparse, drawn-in ode to the moments in life that cause us to lift our eyes to the Heavens, whether out of desperation or gratitude.
It leans into the classic country theme of exploring one's spirituality outside of the traditional church setting, and instead building a personal relationship with God when going through a challenging experience, or when simply spending some time alone (“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”).
The unmistakable gravitas of Combs’ husky voice combines seamlessly with Worsham's faultless vocals, with the two artists’ chemistry radiating warmly throughout ‘How I Learned To Pray’.
‘How I Learned To Pray’ forms part of Charlie Worsham's Compadres EP, which is due to be released on October 13, and will feature appearances from a star-studded array of the Mississippi native's friends, including Lainey Wilson, Kip Moore, Elle King and Dierks Bentley.
