Tim McGraw Teams Up With Blanco Brown For Remake Of 'Don't Take The Girl'

Tim McGraw collaborated with Blanco Brown for a remake of "Don't Take the Girl," McGraw's first No. 1 song, released in 1994.

"When I heard it I was like, 'Wow, this is a story - this is different from what I'm used to hearing.'" Blanco said of first hearing the song while he was in rural Georgia. "Before that I was hearing Donny Hathaway, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye - I never heard that approach to music."

"It changed my perspective and broadened my senses. I could never get away from the storytelling," he added.

McGraw noted in a post on Twitter that he finally crossed paths with Blanco after hearing that "Don't Take The Girl" was one of the first country songs he was turned on to.

A video published on Wednesday features the two singers performing the duet.

"John and TJ Osborne successfully honor the past and the future with their passionate country rock sound," said ASCAP Chairman Paul Williams.

"Together with John's masterful guitar picking and TJ's pitch-perfect baritone, they offer a fresh take on the modern country duo," he said about the Grammy-nominated songwriters and three-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year.

Brothers Osborne are currently on tour with Chris Stapleton as part of the "All American Road Show Tour."

The ASCAP Country Music Awards will also include the presentation of the prestigious ASCAP Founders Award to Randy Travis.
