– Tim McGraw is giving his fans a present today, a free download of Christmas All Over The World,
his first song since winning a court victory last week freeing him to leave Curb Records.
The song, which he recently co-produced with Byron Gallimore at Nashville's Blackbird Studio, is a celebration of the season penned by Daniel Tashian and Troy Verges. It will be released through McGraw's own label, StyleSonic Records.
"I'm very appreciative of the support my fans have given me over the years, and I wanted to say 'thank you' to them with this new holiday song," said Tim McGraw. "I'm really excited to be recording again, and I'll have new music to share early next year."
AOL Music will premiere "Christmas All Over The World" today at 11:00 AM ET on The Boot. For a 24-hour period thereafter, the free download will be available exclusively through AOL, with promotion on the AOL homepage, the AIM Sign-On screen, the AOL Music homepage, Huffington Post Entertainment and other AOL properties. The song will also go to radio today. Starting Friday at 11 a.m. Eastern, fans can obtain a free download through McGraw's web site and additional digital partners.
McGraw will be releasing a brand new single early in 2012.
Curb is releasing McGraw's "Emotional Traffic" in January 2012, after fighting McGraw in court about his contract. The label said the music was too old.
