Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have learned to just sit down and listen when they’re around their heroes like Tim McGraw. They’ve had the privilege of attending a Tim McGraw master class in the past few months thanks to their new collaboration, “May We All.”
Tyler tells Rare Country, “To get to work with Tim on all levels has been amazing. He’s an amazing guy and everything we dreamed he would be and more. He’s got his act together on all levels, so it’s cool to be able to still look up to him and take notes and try to learn everything we can from him. Hopefully, we can continue to build that friendship and do more stuff together.”
The guys are off to a great start with the heart-stopping, race car-themed video for “May We All.” That car crash scene is easily one of the most dramatic country video sequences we’ve seen in years. Tim, Brian and Tyler all take on acting roles in the clip, with Tim serving as the mentor both on and off screen.
Brian says of the clip, “It’s basically like a mini-movie. You know, it’s about five minutes long and there’s no performing shots. It’s pretty amazing. Working with Tim that day, watching him show up just pretty much in character the whole time and ready, professional as he can be. [He was] giving advice and just being positive throughout the day. His spirit is amazing.”
Judging from the acting jobs Brian and Tyler turned in for the “May We All” video, Tim’s lessons have been paying off. The song is available on Florida Georgia Line’s brand-new album, “Dig Your Roots,” which just debuted at No. 1 on the “Billboard” Country Albums chart.
