Tim McGraw‘s released his cover of The Cars‘ “Drive” shortly before the untimely death of the group’s Ric Ocasek.
He needed a cover to add to his new album, and then he remembered the song he would play at his college frat house.
“That was the song that I thought of and we cut it. It turned out great and we loved it. We just put it out two weeks ago to stream it. Then Ric Ocasek passed away and it was pretty poignant for us. For everybody. That was the soundtrack of our lives.”
