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.
