Tim McGraw ‘Humble and Kind’ – Single Review

Lately, Tim McGraw’s output has been pretty touch and go. McGraw, a veteran in the industry, found himself trying to compete with the new, young bucks, which resulted in him changing up his sound and trying to emulate the Bro Country sound with the atrocious single “Truck Yeah” and mediocre ones like “Southern Girl” and “Lookin’ For That Girl”. Now, it’s not all doom and gloom, as McGraw has managed to somewhat balance the bad out with a few good singles, like “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” and “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools”, but alas, he isn’t as steady and stable as he use to be, musically. His latest record, Damn Country Music, received high praise from critics, but I have to admit, I wasn’t totally impressed.

Big & Rich (feat. Tim McGraw) ‘Lovin’ Lately’ – Single Review

maxresdefault (1)

In the ‘Gravity’ album era Big & Rich have made a habit of releasing solid, radio-friendly love songs set to a modern country/pop/rock sound, and their latest single is no exception. A fan favorite featuring Tim McGraw, ‘Lovin’ Lately’ is the third single from their 2014 project and finds the narrator pining over a lover who left him. It’s a letter of sorts to his ex who his friends don’t necessarily know is now his ex, and he’s been calling her everyday with no reply (this guy just doesn’t know to take a hint. Move on dude!). He fruitlessly asks his ex who she’s been knocking around with lately, and it does come across as something of a desperate plea rooted in the depths of heartbreak. This is exemplified most clearly in the bridge, where they repeat “I don’t wanna know, but I gotta know,” over and over, showing how conflicted the guy feels as his misses his lady.

The best of 2015? How about ‘A Song to Live By’ instead…

85877510bf9349e19996fbe19e8f9056

Written by Esther Harper

‘Tis the season for lists – the best of this, the worst of that. We humans love to make sense of the year gone by with our categorisations of the trivial and important. We like to remind ourselves of what to remember, and perhaps tell others of what they missed. Perhaps you’re a compulsive list-maker in your everyday life, or perhaps you like to trawl these best-of lists to discover music that might have passed you by. If you are the latter and seeking the top ten country songs of the year, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck here. There is no list.  There is only one song: Humble and Kind, by Lori McKenna.

Tim McGraw ‘Damn Country Music’ – Album Review

mcgrawcountry

I was surprised when ‘Damn Country Music’ was announced given that it comes barely a year after the release of ‘Sundown Heaven Town’. Maybe this comes due to Tim’s busy acting schedule enforcing his album release, or maybe it has something to do with his being snubbed by the CMA Awards, meaning that he just wants to do things his own way. Whatever the reason, music is the winner because I think that ‘Damn Country Music’ is fantastic, and a step-up from ‘Sundown Heaven Town’.
