If you have been waiting to hear a little bit from Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and his new song with Tim McGraw, then it’s your day.
Hubbard shared a short clip of “Undivided,” the song he and McGraw have teamed up to perform, on Instagram.
The song’s theme focuses on having a sense of unity instead of division. Hubbard said he wrote the song with Chris Loocke while quarantining on his bus in 2020 after a positive COVID-19 test.
Take a listen to Hubbard and McGraw sing a little bit from “Undivided.” The song is scheduled to be released on Jan. 18.
Hubbard really wanted to work with McGraw on this song, so it was just a matter of getting him on board.
“I knew immediately when I finished it, I had to text it to Tim,” Hubbard said of the collaboration. “He has a way of communicating with the world that is unique in music. 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.”
“I loved the positivity of this song and that it called me to check myself and to remember that love is bigger,” McGraw said. “It’s why I knew this song had to be my next single with Tyler as soon as he sent it to me.”
Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley Releasing Solo Music
Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley announced in a joint video that the duo will each release solo music in the near future.
On New Year’s Day, Hubbard and Kelley posted a lengthy video to Florida Georgia Lline’s official Instagram account. The two country stars spoke via Zoom where they shared their thoughts on 2020, their excitement for the new year, and the continued rumors of their band’s breakup.
As Hubbard says, the pair have never made a video like this to share with their fans before. However, he says they want to be transparent and give their fans some behind-the-scenes information on the band’s ongoings.
Kelley said they finished their fifth album in May 2020, which will be released in February. He talked about having lots of free time on his hands during the pandemic following the completion of their album. The country musician stopped playing music for a while and “did a lot of soul searching.” He focused on fishing, his dogs, and anything else he could do to kill time.
Kelley and Hubbard Have Talked About Solo Careers
In addition, Kelley said that both he and Hubbard have talked about exploring solo careers for years. Yet, the country duo both agree that the timing has never felt right for the projects. The singer said that changed during his downtime in the last year.
“Kinda where I landed, man, is really falling in love with my guitar, and writing songs again. Even more than ever. I know nobody knows this probably, but me and [Hubbard] had conversations, probably three or four years ago. And this has kinda been a lifelong dream of mine,” Kelley said of creating a solo album. “I just felt, I think I’m supposed to sing these, and probably have a project or an outlet for these to come out on.”
