Luke Combs and Charlie Worsham crushed a cover of a Vince Gill classic.

The country artists collaborated to perform “Go Rest High on That Mountain” together. On Wednesday (June 9), Luke Combs posted their cover from the studio on Facebook.

Listen to their rendition, below.

Vince Gill wrote and recorded the song in 1995 for his album, When Love Finds You. He began writing the song in 1989, following the death of Keith Whitley. He didn’t finish the song until 1993 after his brother Bob passed away from a heart attack.

He debuted the finished version of the song during his and wife Amy Grant‘s residency at The Ryman in Nashville, adding the new verse. He won the CMA Song of the Year and won two Grammy Awards for the song. He later performed the emotional ballad at George Jones’ funeral alongside Patty Loveless.

This isn’t the first time that Luke Combs has sang Gill’s high praises. On social media, he said that he couldn’t get enough of “Pretty Little Adriana.”

“Been singing it all week since you posted it pal. SUPER Jam!” Combs tweeted at Ray Fulcher.

Combs also covered “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away” on his social media accounts last year. Fans obsessed over his cover and asked him to release an official recording.

Luke Combs’ Run In With Vince Gill

Luke Combs first met Vince Gill before he became a household name. He was walking up the staircase at a local Nashville restaurant and bar, 3rd and Lindsley. He almost knocked Gill down the flight of stairs.

“I didn’t have a publishing deal, a record deal — I had just moved to Nashville a couple months before this, and it was just like super awkward,” Combs recalled to Taste of Country.

Gill was obviously understanding and brushed it off. Years later, Gill would answer Luke Combs’ viral “Deep Cuts” challenge.

He covered a Bob McDill tune “Last Dance at the Old Texas Moon.” He performed the song on acoustic guitar and shared it on his social media accounts. He then challenged Faith Hill to cover her favorite deep cut.

Luke Combs and Vince Gill recently collaborated at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Both Combs and Gill have both had featured artifacts in the historic museum over the years. They performed a concert to promote the new exhibit, “American Currents.” The newly launched exhibit celebrates the current state of music.
