This song finds Luke Combs smitten by his lover's charming idiosyncrasies.
Beautiful, crazy, she can't help but amaze me
The way that she dances, ain't afraid to take chances
And wears her heart on her sleeve
Yeah, she's crazy, but her crazy's beautiful to me
It's those individual quirks that make him love his lady even more.
Combs originally wrote "Beautiful Crazy" with Wyatt B. Durrette III and Robert Williford in 2016. After he penned it, the singer posted on Facebook a video shot on an iPhone showing him performing the song acoustically. The visual racked up several million views and the tune quickly became a staple in his concerts.

When this song climbed to #1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart dated March 2, 2019, Combs became the first artist to send his or her first five singles to the top of the tally since it first launched back in January of 1990. His previous four #1s were "Hurricane
," "When It Rains It Pours
," "One Number Away
" and "She Got the Best of Me
Luke Combs wrote this about his partner Nicole Hocking before they'd officially started dating. He said the song earned him some "serious brownie points."
