Tim McGraw Scores 54th Top Ten Hit
It’s been 20 years since Tim McGraw earned his first Top 10 hit, with his single, ‘Indian Outlaw,’ from his sophomore ‘Not a Moment Too Soon’ album. In that time, the Louisiana native has amassed an astonishing 54 Top 10 hits, including his latest single, ‘Meanwhile Back at Mama’s.’
The song, which features his wife, Faith Hill, is the second single from his ‘Sundown Heaven Town‘ album. McGraw released the video last month, which shows the happy couple alternately enjoying the simple life on the farm, and performing the song at the recent ACM Awards.
Some of the singer’s other Top 10 hits include ‘For a Little While,’ ‘Grown Men Don’t Cry,’ ‘She’s My Kind of Rain’ and ‘Highway Don’t Care.’
McGraw is crossing the country on his Sundown Heaven Town Tour in advance of the release of the album, which won’t hit shelves until September.
“When you finish making an album, all you want is to have everyone hear it as soon as possible,” he notes. “I’m in the unique position this year that I’m able to tour ahead of the album and introduce the fans to these songs early. I’ve never done anything like this before, but in a world driven by immediate gratification, I want to be able to play a song live somewhere and then have it available for download right then.”
