Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard unveiled the director’s cut of their Undivided music video, Thursday. And the new scenes make the hit song even more inspiring.
The two country stars released the song in January, days after the riots at the Capitol on Jan. 6. And they played it before a national audience, Jan. 20, as part of the inauguration festivities for President Joe Biden. Tim McGraw and Hubbard performed the song live from a stage near the Cumberland River in Nashville during the Celebrating America primetime special.
The new cut folds the inauguration performance into the video. And it features scenes of normal people, from high school football players, business owners and health-care workers. There are lots of hugs and high fives. The final clip shows a business owner flipping a door sign to say “we’re open.”
A sampling of the song’s chorus:
“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 is undivided.
Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard’s Undivided Soared To Record After Release
After the song was released, HeadlinePlanet.com, reported that 152 Mediabase-monitored stations added “Undivided” to their air-play rotation. That topped the week. And, it also broke a record for the greatest week ever in Mediabase/Country Aircheck history.
On Thursday, Tim McGraw posted on Instagram:
“When you look around and see people loving each other….it’s a beautiful thing. I wanted this video to celebrate those moments where we come together and make the world a better place.”
Tyler Hubbard said: “Special directors cut video is OUT. Y’all go check it out and let’s all do something today to make this world a better place.”
Hubbard co-wrote the song back in the fall. He was quarantining on a tour bus parked in his own driveway. And he said he was so bothered by the issues rocking the country that he wrote about coming together. Undivided was the result. He called Tim McGraw and asked him to join in a collaboration.
Hubbard took a break from Florida Georgia Line to record the song. After the song’s release in January, Hubbard told CBS This Morning:
“As sad as I was, I thought, ‘Man, I thought we needed this message last year and I didn’t think we could need it any more than we needed it last year, but apparently we still do.”
Tim McGraw added: “the Capitol thing was something I don’t know that I’ve processed well enough to even put into words yet. It was so sad and so profound and something that I never thought I would ever see in this country.”
Here’s the new director’s cut for Undivided. Enjoy.
