The country superstar unveiled the acoustic rendition of the song on Thursday (July 30) with a music video to accompany it.
The song is an ode to life in a small town but asks for you not to call it that within the lyrics:
“Don’t call us small town, never have been, never will
It’s a cold beer sundown and we eat what we kill
We marry angels and dance with the devil in a place where time stands still
Can I get an Amen for livin’ in Hallelujahville.”
“Hallelujahville” was co-written by Tom Douglas alongside Blake Griffith and Brett Taylor.
“Everyone’s got their own Hallelujahville, Their own place that they grew up, whether it be in a city or whether it be in a country, everyone has that place that sorta feels like its got its arms around you and Hallelujahville says that to me,” explained McGraw of the new song.
The song follows the previously released tracks “I Called Mama” and the title track, “Here On Earth.”
Here On Earth is McGraw’s sixteenth studio album and is set to release on August 21st and will launch with a first of its kind album live-stream experience at 9 p.m. EST, that includes a full album performance from McGraw. Tickets for the Here On Earth live stream event are available for $15 and can be purchased HERE.
