It’s awesome that Tim McGraw is still collecting number one hits on the country charts after more than 20 years of being one of the biggest stars in the genre.
Tim is coming off the #1 hit, Humble And Kind. I think it’s really cool that a song like that can reach the top spot on the charts in today’s country music.
And the next single from Tim is really good as well. Let’s check it out.
How I’ll Always Be – Tim McGraw
Tim McGraw has always had a little bit of traditional country in his veins. He made it big during the neo-traditional days in the ’90s. He had that twang and he still has it today.
But the cool thing about Tim is that he’s always found a way to blend that tradition with modern sounds. I think that’s what he’s doing really well on this new track.
The song is about a guy that is kind of reflecting back on life. He’s looking at how things have changed around him. There are things that have changed for the best, but he’s really going to always stick with the things that define who he is. It’s just how he’ll always be.
If you look for traditional sounding country songs on country radio today you’re not going to find too many. I think Jon Pardi fits the bill well. I think Joe Nichols is still finding success. Justin Moore has had some big hits the last few years.
And really the big one out there is Tim McGraw and that’s pretty cool. He’s finding a way to continue to reach the country audience and all the new listeners out there and he’s doing it with traditional country.
That’s pretty cool.
