McGraw, Hubbard collaborate on "Undivided"

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 – Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line collaborated on a song with the result - "Undivided" - coming out Jan.13.

Tyler sent me this song a few months ago and from the first time I heard it....I knew it was one I wanted to be singing for a long time. We got together in the studio last month and created something real special. Hope y'all agree when you hear it!!"

A behind-the-scenes music video of the duo in the studio also will be out Jan 13. The song will be included on the deluxe version of McGraw's "Here On Earth," out later this spring on Big Machine Records.

Co-written by Hubbard and Chris Loocke, "Undivided" came out of Hubbard's time spent soul-searching on his bus while waiting out a positive COVID-19 quarantine. 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. The process brought him to a place of hope 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 said. "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. "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, banjo and acoustic guitar drove the track.

Lyrics include:
I think it's time to come together
You and I can make a change
Maybe we can make a difference
Make the world a better place
Look around and love somebody
We've been hateful long enough
Let the good Lord reunite us
'Til this country that we love's
Undivided

CD reviews for Tim McGraw

CD review - Here on Earth Tim McGraw's collection, "Here on Earth," finds the country star sounding peaceful and down to Earth. He's more meditative than overly active, throughout. It's very much an adult album in that McGraw is speaking from the perspective of maturity, rather than pretending he's still a young man. If he's got any barbecue statins on his white t-shirt, he's not letting on here. McGraw burns through five mellow tracks before he gets to anything with a discernable beat. ...
CD review - Damn Country Music Tim McGraw said of his 14th studio album, "Damn Country Music," "It's is all about passion, (taking him back to 1989) "when I came to Nashville to chase my dreams." Country music has richly rewarded him over the past two decades, and he honors the genre's tradition here. The album gets off to a very traditional start with Celtic folk. The flute and skillful acoustic picking on the opener "Here Tonight" bring a Mark Knopfler tune immediately to mind. ...
CD review - Sundown Heaven Town The banjo comes first out of the speakers, the opening strains of "Overrated," the lead-off song on Tim McGraw's latest. But with a "1-2-3-4" count, the mood changes and goes for a more modern country approach. McGraw does about the same on the follow-up "City Lights" with Michael Landau's steely, but rocking lead guitar taking over near the conclusion as it does later hard on "Sick of Me" where the protagonist contemplates a need to turn his life around. ...
