“Honky Tonk Highway” by Luke Combs
Honky Tonk Highway is a place of entertainment in Downtown Nashville with several clubs and bars with live music performances, and this is exactly what Luke Combs describes here. Luke, as suggested in the song happens to be one of the acts performing at the Honky Tonk, and he creatively details his experience.
He begins by mentioning that he and his band hit the road with a Prevost car towards Alabama, and Birmingham, as he has a three-night run. He barely gets to rest because he has to move from show to show throughout the night.
