Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line are teaming up for a special television performance. The two country powerhouses will perform during a TV special honoring the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
According to PEOPLE, organizers of the special revealed that the two would likely be performing their new collaboration, “Undivided.” The unifying message of the track is one the men feel is a perfect interpretation of what the Biden campaign is all about.
In speaking with CBS This Morning last week, Hubbard explained that the song’s message is one he feels the country needs more than ever. “I thought, ‘Man, I thought we needed this message last year,'” he explained in the interview that happened after the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. “I didn’t think we could need it anymore than we needed it last year, but apparently we still do.”
“The capitol thing [is] something that 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 see in this country,” McGraw added. “But the song, it speaks to more of the social contract that we have with each other. It’s not about politics, it’s about how we’re supposed to treat each other.”
The 90-minute inauguration special is expected to air just after Biden is sworn into office, with all major broadcast and cable networks airing it, with the exception of FOX, who will stream it instead. Other celebrity appearances include Ant Clemons, Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato and Justin Timberlake, Lin-Manuel Miranda, John Legend, Bruce Springsteen and others, along with Biden and Harris.
Additionally, PEOPLE reports that the special will feature ordinary people “who have stepped up to help their communities.”
“Undivided” will appear on a deluxe version of Tim McGraw’s Here On Earth album, out this spring.
