Florida Georgia Line Select Tim McGraw Collaboration as Next Single
Florida Georgia Line are coming armed with some extra star power on the second single from their upcoming third studio album, Dig Your Roots: The boys are following up the project’s No. 1 debut single, “H.O.L.Y.,” with “May We All,” their collaboration with Tim McGraw.
“May We All” is, as Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have previously described it, “like “‘Round Here” meets “Dirt.”” Sonically, the mid-tempo track is reminiscent of the former tune — it’s got twang to it, but it’s also got a heavy drum beat — while its lyrics are more along the lines of the latter song. McGraw sings the second verse and trades lines on the bridge, and, as promised, fans get to hear more of Kelley singing lead.
“May we all know that nothing ain’t cool ’til you wear the new one / The sound of a quarter rollin’ down a jukebox / Play the Travis Tritt right above the Tupac,” the chorus of “May We All” goes. “Hope you get lost down some road / Slow rolling with the top off the back of a Bronco / Buy a cold sixer with a cashed-in lotto / She’s smilin’ with her hair blowin’ out the window / Where you ’bout to go? / Yeah, you learn to fly, and if you can’t, then you just freefall / May we all.”
FGL teased a snipped of the track on Instagram in mid-July.
“We’re super excited. It sounds amazing, the song is great; the song is a big anthem,” Kelley said back in April, adding that McGraw “just brings so much life to the song. His voice is legendary.”
He adds, “It happened real quick. He loved the song and said he’d be glad to put his voice on it.”
Dig Your Roots is set for release on Aug. 26 and is available for pre-order now on iTunes; those who pre-order will receive an instant download of “May We All” and three of the project’s other songs.
