Tim McGraw & Blanco Brown, "Don't Take The Girl"

For Blanco Brown, Tim McGraw's 1994 hit "Don't Take the Girl" was the first song he heard and the first he remembers from growing up in rural Georgia. The song changed his perspective, and when the crooner was in Australia, he had the special opportunity to sing the tune with McGraw himself.

In a video published on Wednesday (Oct. 9), the two sweetly muse to the guitar melody together. "That's awesome," McGraw is heard saying as he wraps his arm around Brown, who had just wrapped up a heartfelt rendition of the song's second verse. "Oh, that's a dream!" Brown exclaimed once it was over.

McGraw also took to Instagram to commemorate the moment, noting, "I'm a fan."
