– Tim McGraw's next CD, "Sundown Heaven Town," will come in both regular and deluxe formats, he said Monday.
The album, due Sept. 16, was co-produced by McGraw and his longtime collaborator Byron Gallimore. The album cover was revealed to fans on Facebook this morning. The regular CD contains 13 songs, while the deluxe version has 18. The latter includes a duet with Kid Rock.
"This album is very encompassing of everything that I've done in my career," said McGraw. "I think it's a good microcosm of what my 20 or so years in music have been, in a lot of ways. You can certainly hear parts of my career throughout all of these songs, as well as the future and where my music is headed. To me, the title of the album is all about that time where you stop doing what you have to do, and start doing what you want to do. "
"I feel like I've got a lot of music in me and that's part of the reason why this album is so soon after the last one and why I wanted to start sharing it with everyone as soon as I could," said McGraw. "I'm excited about where music is gonna take me and where I'm gonna take my music."
