Tim McGraw has had a long career in country music and shows absolutely no signs of stopping as he recently released a new album, Here On Earth, his 15th studio album. McGraw is widely known across the world and is given nods in other artists’ music, most notably “Tim McGraw” by Taylor Swift. His music featured everywhere from television and films to hockey goal songs and NFL highlight reels. Today we’re celebrating his 54th birthday and featuring five of his songs you should know.
“Highway Don’t Care”, Two Lanes of Freedom (2013)
“Highway Don’t Care” was released in 2013 on McGraw’s album Two Lanes of Freedom, featuring Taylor Swift and Keith Urban this song could not get any more country. The rough growl of Urban’s guitars contrasts beautifully with Swift’s gentle vocals to create a lovesick melody begging their partner to come home.
“My Little Girl” Love Story (2014)
On his 2014 album Love Story, is the song “My Little Girl”, an absolutely adorable song dedicated to his daughter. This song could make any father’s heart melt and would make an amazing Father/Daughter dance. McGraw serenades his daughter and reminds her that he will always be there for her and she will always be his little girl.
“It’s Your Love”, Everywhere (1997)
One of his earlier songs “It’s Your Love” featuring his wife Faith Hill off his album Everywhere is another song that you should listen to. A gorgeous duet ballad that is perfect for an emotional karaoke night. Their voices mesh together so well to create beautiful harmonies that make you want to fall in love.
“Everybody Hates Me”, Live Like You Were Dying (2004)
Opening with that signature country guitar is our next song “Everybody Hates Me” off McGraw’s album Live Like You Were Dying. He sings about how hard he’s working so that everyone becomes jealous of him for his success. A true country song through and through.
“I Like It, I Love It” All I Want (1995)
The first single off his third studio album peaked at number one on country charts and twenty fifth on the Billboard Hot 100. This song later went to get multiple rewrites to fit in with Monday Night Football’s weekly highlights and even has a custom version recorded for the Nashville Predators hockey team to use each time a goal is scored. Yes, this song is one of McGraw’s more popular songs but we’re here to remind you that even though it was released over 25 years ago, it still slaps.
Happy Birthday Tim McGraw!
