As one of the most successful country music artists of all time, Tim McGraw has more than a few admirers in the industry. Two of those admirers are the country duo Florida Georgia Line, which consists of singers Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley.
The duo took to social media on Monday to express their gratitude to McGraw for assisting in one of the groups biggest hits. Their song “May We All” is a three times platinum single. McGraw lends his vocal talents on the track, making it one the most ever successful singles in the country music genre. Referring to the legendary singer as the “GOAT,” Florida Georgia Line thanks McGraw with a tweet.
“You are the (GOAT emoji)” @TheTimMcGraw,” the duo says of the singer. “This one will always hold a special place in our hearts and we’re so grateful it came together.” The tweet is complete with a pair of prayer hands emoji at the end.
At first glance, calling someone “the goat” may seem like an insult but is actually the highest of compliment. For those unfamiliar with the acronym, GOAT is the abbreviation for “Greatest of all Time.”
