Tim McGraw had a big year.
He’s had plenty of big years in the last two decades, but he seems to have new drive and he’s not stopping with the new music.
This song is definitely something different than you’ve heard from Tim in the past. I guess he’s always been kind of the pulse of where country music is heading and this time he’s bringing in the electronic sounds and a few rap-ish beats.
Give it a listen and share your thoughts.
Lookin’ For That Girl – Tim McGraw
You can tell from the first sound of the new song that this one is a little different. The electronic sounds are heavy in the mix and the beat is definitely something in the style of the new rap country movement.
It might seem weird to hear this kind of song from Tim McGraw, but when you look back on his career he’s always been pushing to find new sounds. It’s probably the reason he’s been so successful for all these years. He doesn’t get stuck doing the same thing over and over and as a result he continues to grow his audience and surprise them with new things.
This one kind of reminds me of the duet he did with Nelly, which is already a decade old and just before that he did a song called She’s My Kind Of Rain that was different.
I think this one sounds like a hit. It sure is catchy.
Let us know what you think.
