Tim McGraw surprised fans on Friday with the announcement of a new greatest hits album and the release of a brand new collaboration with Midland.
McGraw recruited the trio to join him for a cover of the Bellamy Brothers’ chart-topping smash, “Redneck Girl” and the country duo approves.
“I was drinking my coffee this morning when I stumbled across this new track by Tim and Midland. It sounded familiar! We’ve known Tim for years and we’re big fans of him and Midland. Tim and those guys are real stylists and they infused the song with a shot of energy and refreshing production. Great job guys,” David Bellamy shared.
Written by David Bellamy, “Redneck Girl” was released in September 1982 as the first single from the duo’s album, Strong Weakness. It went on to become their sixth No. single.
McGraw and Midland’s cover is featured on the superstar’s just-announced compilation album, MCGRAW MACHINE HITS: 2013-2019. Out November 20, the project includes songs such as “Humble and Kind,” “Shotgun Rider” and “One of Those Nights.” It also features collabs like “Highway Don’t Care” with Keith Urban and Taylor Swift and “May We All” with Florida Georgia Line.
