Hubbard co-wrote the upbeat, inspirational anthem with Chris Loocke while reflecting on his personal quarantine in his tour bus after testing positive for COVID-19 (which made FGL unable to perform at the CMA Awards last year along with four other performers).
The two country stars will also unveil the official behind-the-scenes music video of them in the studio next week. Hubbard and Brian Kelley openly addressed their FGL fans in a recent video, where the two talked about pursuing their solo music and collaborations with other artists while reassuring everyone that they weren’t breaking up.
“Music gives us hope and brings us together in a way nothing else can. This doesn’t mean we don’t have work to do. Quite the opposite,” McGraw said in a statement. “I loved the positivity of this song and that it called me to check myself and to remember that love is bigger. It’s why I knew this song had to be my next single with Tyler as soon as he sent it to me.”
“I knew immediately when I finished it, I had to text it to Tim. He has a way of communicating with the world that is unique in music,” Hubbard added. “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.”
“Undivided” will be on the deluxe edition of McGraw’s latest studio album Here on Earth, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart in September. The deluxe LP is set to be released later this spring via Big Machine Records.
