Tim McGraw has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and dominated the singles charts spanning decades with a stunning 43 #1 singles. Recently, McGraw has been teasing new music over the past year with singles including “Neon Church” and “Thought About You”, which is currently climbing up the charts. While making hints at a new album, he has been traveling all over the world playing festivals and shows for fans. This morning he released his new single “Way Down” featuring Shy Carter. The new single talks about everything you have way down south. Between Elvis, Ole Miss, Georgia girls, and Memphis heat, McGraw gives an ode to the south.

“Got the Georgia line, and the Georgia pine and a Georgia girl that’s on my mind. Way down, way down, way down, way down, way down, way down, way down, way down.”

Carter is an American songwriter, producer, and singer and you might even recognize a few of his pinned hits. His singles including Billy Currington’s “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To,” Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue,” and McGraw and Faith Hill‘s single “Speak To A Girl.” Carter also crosses over into different genres and co-wrote Charlie Puth’s hit “One Call Away.” With talent like that, it is hard to deny. From working with him on numerous projects, McGraw saw this. He shared a clip on his Instagram story of himself and Carter debuting the song themselves and clips from backstage as well from the IHeart Radio Festival. You can tell the duo are having a ton of fun performing together

You can watch the whole performance live on October 2nd during the IHeart Radio Festival on the CW at 8 PM ET/PT.
