The country stars will sing their latest collaboration, “Undivided.”

“What an honor it will be to get to share such an important message during such a historical moment in time. I pray that this song ignites unity and love for one another like never before. Thank you Lord for giving us this song and the opportunity to be a light,” Hubbard announced on Instagram Tuesday (Jan. 19), while McGraw shared the same “honored” sentiment and promo poster on his IG.
