“Undivided” shares a hopeful message of unity with heartfelt lyrics that call for listeners to rally together to make a change.
“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/ Let the good Lord reunite us/ ‘Til this country that we love’s/ Undivided,” McGraw and Hubbard sing.
During a recent interview with their record label, McGraw revealed that the pair will honor the city of Nashville during their inauguration performance.
“Very excited, and also, the background of what we’re gonna be shooting is gonna be Nashville. So, to showcase our city and all that it’s gone through in the last year is a big deal for us,” he shared.
Hosted by Tom Hanks, Celebrating America will also feature appearances by John Legend, Jon Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Bruce Springsteen and more. The special will also feature remarks from President-Elect Biden as well as Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.
