Tim McGraw, ‘Truck Yeah’ Drives Him to Career-High Chart Debut
Tim McGraw just released his debut single, “Truck Yeah,” for his new label home, Big Machine Records, and the song has already stepped on the gas, bowing at No. 22 on the charts this week and earning the superstar the highest solo chart debut of his two-decades-long career.
“Country radio has given me an amazing career already,” Tim says. “I’m 20 years into it, so to be having my highest chart debut ever is such a cool thing. I can’t thank everyone in radio enough for the support they’ve shown me over the years and especially now as I’m starting a new chapter with a new label. It means more to me than ever … the best is really yet to come!”
Although the tireless entertainer is still embroiled in a lengthy lawsuit with his former record label, Curb Records, he won the right to record music with a new record company last year.
“Scott Borchetta [President and CEO at Big Machine] has developed a powerhouse … and I’m happy to be a part of what he has built and to call Big Machine Records my new label home,” Tim notes. “Excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling about working on a new album for this next chapter in my career. Here’s to the next 20 years!”
While no release date has been announced for the new album yet, Tim is currently crossing the country with good friend Kenny Chesney, on their Brothers of the Sun tour, which heads to California for two shows this weekend. Keep track of Tim’s tour schedule here.
