Luke Combs' diary entry for April 14, 2020 included a reminder that he had a scheduled Zoom songwriting call with hitmakers Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder. The day before, the three exchanged text messages and Combs queried whether the coronavirus home isolation they were all enduring was a suitable topic for their session. "I think I just asked them out of the blue, 'Hey, do we write a song about this thing? Or is that too cheesy?'" he recalled to The Tennessean
. It turned out Cobb and Snyder were both wondering the same thing, and they pitched him the title "Six Feet Apart."
The next day, Combs logged into Zoom and the trio penned a song that captures what fans and artists across the world are feeling: stuck in their homes and missing family, friends and doing the things they love.
