ESPN Salutes the SEC With the Music of Tyler Childers

'We Love It Here' breaks on Thanksgiving Day

ESPN found the perfect soundtrack for its new brand anthem for the SEC Network—the Grammy-nominated song "All Your'n" by Kentucky native Tyler Childers, a rising star in country music beloved across the South. 

The track anchors a new 60-second spot from McKinney that will break on Thanksgiving Day. The ad pays tribute to the SEC lifestyle and everything that makes the Southeastern Conference feel like home—highlighting traditions, rituals and moments with family and friends around the SEC. 

Other spots unique to each SEC member school will also run as part of the campaign. Out-of-home ads will run in Atlanta and within Mercedes-Benz Stadium during SEC Championship Weekend.
