Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard will perform Wednesday on a TV special hosted by Tom Hanks.
“We got a call just a few days ago and got invited to play the song at the inauguration, and I think Tim and I both were extremely excited and humbled,” Hubbard says. “What a crazy cool opportunity – as simple as just to get to play music again, which is exciting in itself, but then to get to spread and share this message of hope and love and unity to the world. What better platform to get to do that on, so we’re both extremely excited.”
The inauguration special “Celebrating America” airs Wednesday (8:30 p.m. ET) on ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and NBC as well as online via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and others.
