First McGraw CD in three years about to drop

Friday, January 5, 2007 – Tim McGraw will release his first studio album in almost three years when "Let It Go" drops March 27 on Curb.

“I am really excited about this new studio album,” says McGraw. “It was great to work with Byron Gallimore, Darran Smith and my band in the studio again and to build upon our work together.”

"Let It Go" was recorded in Nashville and was co-produced by McGraw, Gallimore and Smith, who is a member of McGraw's backing band, the Dancehall Doctors. McGraw again enlisted the help of his touring band The Dancehall Doctors on the project, which is now their third consecutive project. The album’s first single “Last Dollar,” written by Big Kenny of Big & Rich, kicked off the New Year as the first played video of 2007 on CMT.

The album contains 13 tracks: “Last Dollar,” “I’m Workin’,” “Let It Go,” “Whiskey and You,” “Suspicions,” “Kristofferson,” “Put Your Loving On Me,” “Nothin’ To Die For,” “Between The River and Me,” “Train #10,” “I Need You,” “Comin’ Home,” and “Shotgun Rider.”

Wife Faith Hill appears on two tracks, “Shotgun Rider” and “I Need You,” which was the encore song during their 2006 “Soul2Soul II Tour.” McGraw co-penned tune “Train #10.”

In March 2006, "Reflected: Greatest Hits V. 2," became McGraw’s ninth consecutive album to debut at the number 1 spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart, while his previous studio album "Live Like You Were Dying," released in 2004, debuted with a career high in sales of 766,000 copies in just its first week. To date, it has sold nearly 4 million copies.

CD reviews for Tim McGraw

CD review - Here on Earth 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. ...
CD review - Damn Country Music 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. ...
CD review - Sundown Heaven Town 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. ...
