I criticized Tim McGraw’s last release. Truck Yeah just wasn’t the kind of song I usually like. The beat was interesting enough, but I thought it just lacked something that usually makes a song interesting.
Now Tim has a new single out and it’s a good one. I like the laid back feel of the track and the message in the story is good. I think Tim has found his groove again as he prepares to release his new album early next year.
One of Those Nights – Tim McGraw
If we all think back on our lives there are probably five to ten events we remember right away. These are the memories that have helped shape who we are today and we can trace it back to a single event that perhaps allowed us to change directions.
That’s what this song is about and it’s told in the form of a story between a young man and his young girlfriend or companion. You have the two of them heading out for a night with friends. They’re kicking back and enjoying the times. They’re not living for tomorrow or for the the past. They’re just thinking about who they are right now and how happy it means to them to be together and in love.
That’s what life is about. It’s about those moments and those great nights and the people you share those special nights and memories with.
This is the kind of song that means something to people. The topic doesn’t have to be deep or anything like that, but the song does have to be interesting and it does have to be special to someone out there. That’s what this track has. It’s really good.
