The track, which appears on the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack, marks the first time the GRAMMY-winning superstars have come together in the studio.
Produced by Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers, “Only Us” is a soaring, powerful ballad that puts the artists’ impeccable vocals on full display and evokes emotion like no other.
This isn’t Underwood’s first time trying her hand at musical theater. In 2013, she portrayed the lead role in the live NBC production of The Sound of Music.
