Tim McGraw debuts first video of '07
Thursday, December 21, 2006
– Tim McGraw's "Last Dollar" will be played as the first played video of 2007, airing on Monday, Jan. 1, 2007 at 6 a.m. eastern on CMT.
The television premiere will follow the online premiere at CMT.com at 12:01 a.m. eastern earlier that day.
"Last Dollar" was derived from behind-the-scenes and other footage shot during the "Soul 2 Soul II" tour in 2006 and is produced and directed by longtime friend Sherman Halsey, who has produced 21 of McGraw’s 25 music videos and on tour by video director Jeff Johnson.
The live performance video is a continual flow of imagery of McGraw entertaining thousands of fans at sold out venues plus behind the scenes happenings, including a few quick looks at a Bread & Water benefit show from earlier this year. The video also contains special effects and super stylized frames giving fans an artistic touch on the standard behind the scenes fare. The video will feature a special surprise ending.
"Last Dollar" will be the debut single from McGraw’s forth coming new studio album, due probably in March or April.

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."

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. ...
