Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard are releasing a new duet together on January 13.
The superstar pairing shared a snippet of the forthcoming new duet entitled “Undivided” on Tuesday (Jan. 5) with an accompanied video that includes footage of them in the studio.
“Undivided” is co-written by Hubbard and Chris Loocke. The track came out of Hubbard’s time spent soul-searching on his bus while waiting out a positive COVID-19 quarantine. In that space, examining his own ability to judge too quickly, he considered the values he was raised with and looked to his faith for guidance and inspiration. But rather than writing a somber song, the process brought him to a place of hope, and he dug into his roots for a song that sparkled with a beat and positivity.
“Music gives us hope and brings us together in a way nothing else can. This doesn’t mean we don’t have work to do. Quite the opposite,” McGraw explained. “I loved the positivity of this song and that it called me to check myself and to remember that love is bigger. It’s why I knew this song had to be my next single with Tyler as soon as he sent it to me.”
“I knew immediately when I finished it, I had to text it to Tim. He has a way of communicating with the world that is unique in music,” Hubbard said of the feel-good song and collaboration. “For him to want to perform with me was an amazing feeling. The song is about coming together, and that’s exactly what we did.”
Produced by Corey Crowder, Hubbard, McGraw and Byron Gallimore, the banjo and acoustic guitar driven track creates a perfect space for McGraw’s gift as a voice of not just wisdom, but living and learning, to pair with Hubbard’s wide-open rural truths and phased vocals.
