Tim McGraw releases "Suspicions" video
Sunday, February 3, 2008
– Tim McGraw released a music video for "Suspicions" created from high definition footage shot by Sherman Halsey at the "Soul 2 Soul II Tour 2007" finale in Anaheim, Cal.
"I shot the concert with 12 cameras, 2 of which were mounted on 2 Panavision's 50-foot Techno cranes," said Halsey. "They allowed me to position a camera five stories above the stage and drop down and push into a close up on Tim."
The video contains long dramatic camera moves and follows McGraw down the stage, which was shaped like a giant cross. The entire stage was a state of the art video screen which showed visual affects and content throughout each song.
"Suspicions" was written by Eddie Rabbitt, Even Stevens, David Malloy and Randy McCormick and was a number 1 single for Rabbitt in 1979.

CD reviews for Tim McGraw
Tim McGraw's collection, "Here on Earth," finds the country star sounding peaceful and down to Earth. He's more meditative than overly active, throughout. It's very much an adult album in that McGraw is speaking from the perspective of maturity, rather than pretending he's still a young man. If he's got any barbecue statins on his white t-shirt, he's not letting on here.
McGraw burns through five mellow tracks before he gets to anything with a discernable beat. ...
Tim McGraw said of his 14th studio album, "Damn Country Music," "It's is all about passion, (taking him back to 1989) "when I came to Nashville to chase my dreams."
Country music has richly rewarded him over the past two decades, and he honors the genre's tradition here. The album gets off to a very traditional start with Celtic folk. The flute and skillful acoustic picking on the opener "Here Tonight" bring a Mark Knopfler tune immediately to mind. ...
The banjo comes first out of the speakers, the opening strains of "Overrated," the lead-off song on Tim McGraw's latest. But with a "1-2-3-4" count, the mood changes and goes for a more modern country approach. McGraw does about the same on the follow-up "City Lights" with Michael Landau's steely, but rocking lead guitar taking over near the conclusion as it does later hard on "Sick of Me" where the protagonist contemplates a need to turn his life around. ...
