Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard have joined a star-studded lineup set to perform at Wednesday night’s primetime TV special for the inauguration of incoming President Joseph Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
McGraw and Hubbard will be joined by several other A-listers, including Ant Clemons, Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, “Hamilton” composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, John Legend, and Bruce Springsteen. Tom Hanks is slated to host the special.
“We got a call just a few days ago and got invited to play the song at the inauguration, and I think Tim and I both were extremely excited and humbled,” Hubbard said. “What a crazy cool opportunity – as simple as just to get to play music again, which is exciting in itself, but then to get to spread and share this message of hope and love and unity to the world. What better platform to get to do that on, so we’re both extremely excited.”
“Very excited, and also, the background of what we’re gonna be shooting is gonna be Nashville,” McGraw added. “So, to showcase our city and all that it’s gone through in the last year is a big deal for us.”
Earlier this month, McGraw and Hubbard released their collab, titled “Undivided,” which calls for unity and healing among Americans.
“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,” the country stars sing.
The song features on the upcoming deluxe version of McGraw’s album Here on Earth. Hubbard co-wrote the song with Chris Loocke while he was in quarantine in November of 2020 after testing positive for COVID-19.
