McGraw sits on "Top of the World"

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 – Tim McGraw released a brand new song, "Top of the World," to radio today.

The song, produced by Byron Gallimore and McGraw, is from a forthcoming 14th studio album from McGraw coming this fall. The song is about a relationship with a girl with a mid-tempo feel. The lyrics conclude with "'Cause when ya got love like we got love/Sittin' on top of the world." The song starts with some electronic sounding drum beats with the vocals, at times, sounding slightly tweaked electronically as well.

On Monday, "Top Of The World" gained some out-of-this-world attention as McGraw sent an exclusive 15-second video clip of the song to NASA and the International Space Station via Twitter.

The song follows McGraw's release of "Sundown Throwdown" in September 2014, which included the hits "Meanwhile Back at Mama's," "Shotgun Rider," Lookin' For That Girl" and "Diamond Rings and Old Barstools.

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.

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. ...
