Lathan Warlick and Tyler Hubbard’s new song, “My Way” is available now, March 19th on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
Trap-country is gaining more and more traction across the country music world and beyond. As the subgenre breaks ground, Tennessee-native, Lathan Warlick has teamed up with Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard in a new song titled “My Way”. Warlick blends a thumping bass and a banjo together while including his faith into the mix. Hubbard is no stranger to this style of music, as he has been incorporating elements of hip-hop and Christian in his music since the very beginning of Florida Georgia Line.
Although musically it could arguably resemble a hip-hop track, “My Way” could easily fit into a country tailgate playlist. It’s a feel-good tune about taking in life and enjoying it to the fullest. Hubbard takes the second verse and sings the choruses and Warlick delivers the rest.
“If I had my way, every day would be a Friday // we’d be riding with the windows down // If I had it my way, I’d hit 100 on the highway // with the radio turned up loud”
“With this single, we really had it our way,” Warlick shares in a recent press release. “It was so great working with Tyler! This song is how we’d both spend our Friday, living free and having fun.”
“I’m team Lathan all day – I was a huge fan before, and I feel like I have a new brother after this,” Hubbard added. “We wanted to write a fun one that had a good, positive feel. It’s a summer jam. I just envision everybody riding around with the windows down, blasting this song, and forgetting all their worries for a little bit.”
Warlick has been making music for over six years but doesn’t want to assign himself to one genre, referring to himself as a “positive artist.” He recently left his job of eight years at the railroad to pursue a full-time music career. Like so many artists these days, he rose to fame on TikTok, creating custom rap verses to popular songs such as “Holy” by Justin Bieber and Chance the Rapper, “You Say” by Lauren Daigle, “Hello” by Adele, along with manny others.
Country-star, Granger Smith took notice of Warlick’s rise and reached out to him to create a verse to his song, “That’s Why I Love Dirt Roads,” which was released last June. After signing with Columbia Records, Warlick has put out two songs, “Over Yonder” with Matt Stell and “Roots” with RaeLynn. These two tracks, along with “My Way,” will all be a part of his first major-label project, which will also feature other country stars such as Lauren Alaina, Dustin Lynch, and Russell Dickerson.
While Hubbard’s long-time partner, Brian Kelley works on his solo project, he will continue to collaborate with other artists, already having written and featured on Tim McGraw’s “Undivided” this year.
