Tim McGraw and Eric Paslay Covering George Strait’s “Unwound” Is The Most Country Thing You’ll See All Day


While Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are traveling the country on their Soul2Soul World Tour, Tim has started a backstage jam session called “Backstage with McGraw,” to get the band warmed up.

The web sessions show Tim and his band casually hanging backstage with their opening act, performing their own rendition of various country songs. Previous sessions include Tim jamming with Midland on Alabama’s “Dixieland Delight, with Chris Janson on his own song “How I’ll Always Be” and with Billy Currington on Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler.”

Each episode gives an inside peek into what happens backstage during the Soul2Soul Tour.

In the latest video, Tim enlists the help of opener Eric Paslay to join him on George Strait’s “Unwound.” Eric, who opened three dates on the Tour in Knoxville, Tenn., Greenville, S.C., and Jacksonville, Fla., jams on the guitar trading vocals with Tim on the Strait hit. Tim got so into this rendition that he broke out some dance moves, boot scootin’ across the floor.

At the end of the video, Tim turned to the camera with a message for George. “King George,” the Louisiana native said. “Eric Paslay just kicked ass.”

The Soul2Soul Tour continues it’s run this weekend (Oct. 19-20) with LoCash in Florida and wraps on Oct. 27 at the Barclays Center in New York with Margo Price.
