Florida Georgia Line (Feat. Tim McGraw), ‘May We All’ [Listen]
Florida Georgia Line chose a song Tim McGraw could have made famous for their collaboration with the legend. "May We All" offers nostalgia over a progressive beat. It's the kind of backward yearning McGraw is repopularizing on his own records.
It's also the second straight single FGL have released that deviates from the sound they became famous for. Fans have yet to hear a party anthem from Dig Your Roots on the radio. The message is clear: Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are maturing as artists and men.
Rodney Clawson and Jamie Moore team up to write "May We All," the follow-up to the chart-topping "H.O.L.Y." Their images are the hook, not a fairly straightforward and predictable melody. Many of the touchstones that pop up in so many Florida Georgia Line songs can be found here, but instead of getting a "cold sixer" to seduce the girl in the backward ballcap, Hubbard and Kelley are only praising her beauty. It's more of a chill backyard party than one fit for the club.
Did You Know?: Florida Georgia Line's Dig Your Roots album also includes collaborations with Ziggy Marley and the Backstreet Boys.

The Real Story Behind Florida Georgia Line's "May We All"
Florida Georgia Line (Feat. Tim McGraw)'s "May We All" Lyrics:
“May we all get to grow up in our red white and blue little town / Get a one star hand me down Ford to try to fix up / With some part time cash from driving a tractor / Find a sweet little thing, wears your ball cap backwards / Kinda place you can't wait to leave but nobody does / 'Cause you miss it too much.”
“May we all know that nothing ain't cool 'til you wear the new off / The sound of a quarter rollin' down a jukebox / Play the Travis Tritt right above the Tupac / Before you get lost down some road / Slow rolling with the top off the back of a Bronco / Buy a cold sixer with a cashed in lotto / She's smilin' with her hair blowing out the window / Where you 'bout to go / Yeah you learn to fly and if you can't then you just free-fall / May we all.”
“May we all get to see those fields of green turn gold / Watch a marching band play with the harvest moon coming up / And know that fifteen minutes of famous / Ain’t gonna be what makes us or breaks us / But we’ll all be watching the TV, the day that it comes.”
“May we all do a little bit better than the first time / Learn a little something from the worst times / Get a little stronger from the hurt times / May we all get to have a chance to ride the fast one / Walk away wiser when we crashed one / Keep hoping that the best one is the last one.”
