Tim McGraw, Shy Carter Tour the South in New Song ‘Way Down’  

On October 2, collaborators perform sultry track at iHeartRadio Music Festival.  

Tim McGraw and Shy Carter celebrate the South in their new song "Way Down," the latest in a string of songs McGraw has released before a solo album.  

“Way down in Alabama got the Dreamland/B-ham, Mobile, Muscle Shoals,” McGraw says, referring to prominent Alabama cities and a popular barbecue place.  

Each chorus features Carter and McGraw's gospel-infused yells and a swaggering, swampy rhythm as it praises Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, and other places and women.  

Carter, who has written singles for Sugarland (“Stuck Like Glue”) and Charlie Puth (“One Call Away”), appreciates “the crickets and the dogs and yee-haws and the grandmas.”  

The couple performed the song live at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in September, which will premiere on the CW at 8 p.m. ET on October 2nd.  

After his 2015 solo album Damn Country Music, McGraw released the long-awaited duets album The Rest of Our Life with Faith Hill.   

McGraw has released several singles and standalone tracks since 2018, including “Neon Church,” “Thought About You,” and this cover of the Cars’ “Drive.”
