Tim McGraw released some brand new music last week. It’s out right now if you haven’t heard it yet.
This one is the title track from the album. Tim released it before the album to help build some momentum.
The first single, Top Of The World, has been doing alright on the charts so far. It’s been hanging around the top ten. I’m not sure if it’ll creep into the top ten, but it’s been a solid single.
And I don’t know if this one will be the next single or not. I think it’s a pretty solid country song.
Damn Country Music – Tim McGraw
Tim has put out some interesting music the last few years. I don’t know if Tim has ever been known as a traditional country singer. I think he’s just always stuck with the guidance of trying different things and looking for good music without necessarily trying to fit into any boxes.
And that’s worked really well for him.
But over the last few years he’s actually put out some of the most country singles of anyone. And he’s had big time success with it.
I’m thinking of songs like Meanwhile Back At Mama’s and Diamond Rings And Old Barstools. Those are true country songs in the old school and new school sense.
And this new one has the same qualities. It seems to be a song about life and the life specifically of someone that kind of lives a country song. There are hardships, good times and all the emotions in between.
That’s how country fans live their lives and it’s why we like country music.
Really cool song from Tim. I don’t know if it’s a single, but I hope so.
