Tim McGraw Debuts ‘Southern Voice’ Right Here!

Tim McGrawTim McGraw‘s ‘Southern Voice’ doesn’t hit stores until Oct. 20, but we have your exclusive first listen to the entire album a week early!

This new project from the country superstar has been a long time in the making. He actually recorded it about three years ago, while mourning the loss of both his father, baseball great Tug McGraw, and stepfather, Horace Smith.

“Especially as a musician, your work is very cathartic. You’re able to get a lot of therapy sessions in while you’re in the studio,” Tim tells The Boot. “‘You Had to Be There’ parallels my life with my father, although I wasn’t in prison or anything like that, but there are some parallels with him not being there, and I didn’t know him until I was older. Then ‘Love Me Goodbye’ parallels living with my stepfather, with some of the alcoholism and dysfunction we had in our family.”

Those two emotional songs are accompanied by ten other tracks that combine to make what is arguably Tim’s most introspective album yet. He’ll celebrate its release with a whirlwind media tour that includes two performances on ‘The Late Show With David Letterman,’ a ‘Live on Letterman’ concert webcast, plus performances on the ‘Today’ show, ‘Ellen’ and ‘The Jay Leno Show.’
