Tim McGraw ‘McGraw Machine Hits: 2013-2019’ – Album Review

Tim McGraw is celebrating his career with Big Machine Records and Spirit Music Group with his new greatest hits album, McGraw Machine Hits: 2013-2019, and what an iconic career he’s had.

Tim McGraw Machine Hits: 2013-2019

Tim McGraw’s McGraw Machine Hits: 2013-2019 is available now

The album starts off with a bang by highlighting tracks from McGraw’s Damn Country Music album which was released in 2015. This includes “How I’ll Always Be” and “Top of the World”. The iconic “Humble and Kind” is also featured, which is probably the most memorable song from the album. Written by Lori McKenna, it’s an important message, and became a popular mother/son dance at weddings.

Next up McGraw highlights tracks from Sundown Heaven Town which was released in 2014. McGraw included “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools”, “Meanwhile Back at Mamas”, and 2x Platinum “Shotgun Rider”.

The final album highlighted is the iconic 2013 Two Lanes of Freedom. The 2x platinum “Highway Don’t Care” featuring Keith Urban and Taylor Swift was just one of the hits to come from this album. McGraw also chose to include “Nashville Without You”, “Southern Girl”, “One of Those Nights”, and “Truck Yeah”.

It must have been a hard choice to decide which songs were going to be included which is why the greatest hits album finishes with three bonus songs, “Drive”, “May We All” with Florida Georgia Line, and a never before heard cover of “Redneck Girl” featuring Midland.

It’s no secret that McGraw has had an incredible career that deserves to be celebrated. We can’t wait to see what’s next.

Tim McGraw’s “I Called Mama” Claims Top Spot and Earns Him 44th Career #1

Tim McGraw’s “I Called Mama” earns him his 44th career number one as the song hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

For decades, McGraw has graced our radio airwaves, giving us the tunes that have become the soundtrack to our lives. In fact, along with this marks the fourth straight decade for McGraw on scoring No. 1 singles, to match his four-decade streak on No. 1 albums he accomplished earlier this year with his 16th studio album, HERE ON EARTH. The album serves as his first solo release in five years marking his return to Big Machine Records.

“I Called Mama” is the lead single from the record and is a message to everyone to remember the people that make our world a little brighter even during the darker times. The beautiful track is truly impactful during these unprecedented times we have been living in over the last several months through the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Grabbed my guitar from the back seat / Wrote a song just for me / And I sung it for the blue sky / And a couple live oak trees / I thought of home, grabbed my phone from my pocket / And I called mama”

Written by Lance Miller, Mary Green, and Jimmy Yeary, the single is literally a reminder to call your mom, but the deeper message is to seek comfort in those who comfort you and welcome you with open arms, despite your flaws.

As the song tops the charts, McGraw continues to impress and proves that his music still resonates well with modern-day country music fans. “I Called Mama” is McGraw’s first number-one single since the iconic “Humble and Kind” debuted in 2016, but of course the singer has had many charted songs in between. We cannot wait to see which song is a hit with country music lovers next.

NYCS First Impression: Tim McGraw ‘Here On Earth’

Tim McGraw Here On Earth

GRAMMY award-winning artist Tim McGraw is back with his 16th studio album. HERE ON EARTH is the superstar’s first solo project in five years since Damn Country Music and takes listeners through a journey of emotive experiences. His most recent project was released in 2017 and was a collaboration with wife Faith Hill titled The Rest of Our Life. Since then, McGraw has been releasing teasers about new music and the full project is finally here.

The title track “LA” opens with a resemblance to an 80s-synth track, sustaining that ambiance throughout the length of the track. The lyrics discuss the cliches of LA while mentally making you feel like you are in the city of angels.

“Chevy Spaceship” starts with a grainy space-launch message with extraterrestrial loops. It compliments a backing piano instrumentation and builds up as the song progresses. The title track “Here On Earth” contains a more uptempo offering than the previous two tracks and couples with “Hard To Stay Mad At” in terms of upbeat, feel-good songs.

“Sheryl Crow” glimpses at McGraw’s rock side and is a love song about the same nostalgic feelings felt about someone and feeling those same feelings hearing Sheryl Crow on the radio for the first time; almost the same perspective as Taylor Swift’s “Tim McGraw.” “7500 OBO” is an offering from today’s traditional country sound and in correlation with the album’s release, the singer released an acoustic version of the song on YouTube as well as a video for Hallelujahville.

Lead single “I Called Mama” serves as a reminder that comforting voices out there are available and one of the best things out there. He sings: “So I stopped off at a Texaco // Bought a Slim Jim and a Coke // Parked out by the water just to watch that river flow // Grabbed my guitar from the back seat // Wrote a song just for me // And I sung it for the blue sky // And a couple live oak trees // I thought of home, grabbed my phone from my pocket // And I called mama.”

Each track highlights the shared experiences that humans feel, something that is so needed during these uncertain times.

Jimmie Allen Releases Noteworthy Collaboration Project ‘Bettie James’

Jimmie Allen, Bettie James

With the exception of a few remixes and covers, fans of Jimmie Allen have not been given new music since his 2018 debut album Mercury Lane. Still, the “Best Shot” singer has maintained his spot in country music and has developed a devoted community through social media. With his growing fanbase, Bettie James is here to reintroduce Allen in a way that could not have been more anticipated, in the very best way: with a collaborative project.

With six, out of seven, unreleased tracks with entertainers such as Nelly, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, and more, Bettie James works as a mesh of creatively diverse tracks. There are feel-good, powerhouse songs, estranged love ballads, inspirational messages laid over music, and reflective lyrics that contemplate tragedy and, in another production, potential growth.

Bettie James was undoubtedly worth the wait, not only for Allen’s listeners but for country music as a whole. It showcases a grown, matured, and versatile artist who is capable of honesty and vulnerability as well as performing those country music classics that get people moving and grooving. Not only does it provide Allen with a chance to redefine himself in a multifaceted, cross-genre way, but the well-known contributors are able to play with their preferred style of music, too. For instance, “Made for These” practically demands Tim McGraw’s involvement since it walks the same line as McGraw’s 2004 hit, “Live Like You Were Dying”. Additionally, “Freedom Was A Highway” aligns with Brad Paisley’s high-esteemed inclinations to incorporate a dense, electric riff.

Further exploring a mix of genre-bending music from top to bottom, the album kicks off with the infectious and fan-favorite “Good Times Roll” featuring Nelly and ends with the final and seventh track, “This Is Us” featuring Noah Cyrus. Fans got a bit of an early taste for each of these two tracks. While the latter was released on its own in February, Allen also began including a sneak peek of “Good Times Roll” in his live show as early as December 2019. Check out the video below for a clip of the live performance.

Although, Bettie James in its entirety is a true gift, there are two notable pieces, and it would be a great disservice if “Drunk & I Miss You” and “Why Things Happen” were not specifically given the words, and the space, to officially discuss and acclaim. The former is with Mickey Guyton and the melody practically sends the listener into a dizzying mental state, as if a camera is rotating 360° around an object to cause chaos and confusion. It only adds to the anguish and desperation of the song, though the mixed feelings of honesty battled with alcohol-induced longing creates a conflicted, muddled mental state that allows the track to be what it is. And, it’s great.

“Why Things Happen”, with Charley Pride and Darius Rucker, takes on a more serious route with the lyrics searching for answers as to, well, why things happen as they do. It’s political, without having to get political. And, it’s an emotional, thought-provoking production that tugs at the heart-strings. With Rucker’s natural tremble in his voice and Pride’s established, rough yet muted tone intertwining with each other and echoing Allen, a full-blast exploratory creation is born that leaves us wanting more.

Bettie James is an epiphanic, significant and well-built project from Allen that takes you on a whirlwind of emotions in seven tracks, leaving you dazed and confused, in the very best way.

To keep up with Jimmie Allen, follow him on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.

Bettie James is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Showing Appreciation for Moms, Tim McGraw Drops “I Called Mama”

Tim McGraw I Called Mama

Just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, Tim McGraw has released his new song, “I Called Mama” showing appreciation to mothers everywhere.

Written by Lance Miller, Marv Green, and Jimmy Yeary, “I Called Mama” shares the message that not only through the good times but also the bad, the people you love, no matter how far away they live will be there for you. If you are feeling down, don’t wait to pick up the phone. Call a loved one, and they will help make your world a little brighter. It’s a reminder that we all need to hear during these trying times.

“Grabbed my guitar from my back seat / Wrote a song just for me / And I sung it for the blue sky / And a couple live oak trees / I thought of home, grabbed my phone from my pocket / And I called mama.”

In a recent press release, the award-winning singer shared what this song means to him, “On the one hand this song is literally, ‘ hey call your mom.’ On the other hand, you look at a time like this, there are real hardships for everyone, and it’s a great reminder that hearing someone’s voice who knows you and loves you can help you get through anything. I think it’s at these very difficult times that music can help and the power of a song can give someone a moment of clarity or comfort, or just a smile. Especially now, when we seem to need it more than ever.”

To go along with the single, a lyric video has also been released featuring never-before-seen footage of McGraw and his mom. To make it even more special, the singer asked his fans to send in photos and videos of their moms. Watch below.

Throwback Thursday: Tim McGraw Songs You May Have Forgotten

Tim McGraw is one of the most recognizable country music superstars. With his unique voice, he managed to become known for his ability to stir up a wide range of emotions from heart-melting ballads to toe-tapping, dancehall tunes. As he once said in USA Today “There’s a lot of people who can pick up a guitar and sing you a great song, but there’s a very few people that can tell you how they feel. That’s the main purpose of acting or doing an opera or painting or anything. It’s to tell somebody how you feel and more importantly, tell them how they feel.”

In all of McGraw’s songs, this sentiment is undeniable especially in “It’s Your Love”, “Speak To a Girl”, “Don’t Take The Girl” or “Humble and Kind”.

 

With 15 studio albums, 21 singles to hit number one on the Billboard Hot Country 100 chart, 3 singles named the number one country song of the year (It’s Your Love, Just To See You Smile, and Live Like You Were Dying), 3 Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and 3 People’s Choice Awards, McGraw is certainly one of the most decorated artists of our time. Here are a few songs that we love, that you may have forgotten about. 

 

  1. Welcome To The Club –  This first song is for those who were dumped and broken-hearted.  “You gave her everything you thought she wanted/ Now all you want is gone/ you’re just one of many broken-hearted/ Wondering what went wrong/ Welcome to the club” 

 

  1. Tears In The Rain  – While listening you can feel his sadness because his love might come back if she could see his tears in the rain. “Now, I’ll regret that moment ‘cause I didn’t let her know/ How much I still loved her, I was hopin’ it would show/ But the raindrops and the teardrops ran together on my face/ Now she’ll never ever know no one can take her place”

 

  1. The Great Divide – Sometimes an argument can lead to a great divide which is hard to overcome. The hole between two people can bo so deep that even if they want to bury it but the ground would still tender. “And it’s a long, long way/ Across the great divide/ The songs that they once sang/ Now echo far and wide/ They could still get back/ All the love that they have lost/ But only if they both will reach across/ ‘Cause it’s a long, long way to the other side/ Of the great divide”

 

  1. You Just Get Better All The Time – One of these songs where love is almost touchable and you can feel the affection. A wonderful piece of music. “You just get sweeter every day/ The little things you do and say/ If only you could see you through my eyes/ You just get better all the time”

 

  1. Senorita Margarita – When your heart is sad and you need someone to comfort you but the one you love is the cause of heartache you need senorita margarita. “Senorita, margarita I’m as lonesome as a man can be/ I still love her/ I still need her/ I’m just hoping you can comfort me/ I don’t want to do her wrong/ I don’t need somebody new/ I just can’t be alone tonight/ So senorita, margarita, let me hold you tight”

 

  1. Let Me Love You – A country song with a Latino vibe, now you’ve heard it all. It will make you sway to the rhythm and feel like a professional samba dancer.  “Show me what it is like to lose control/ Free the desire in your soul/ Oh oh let me love you/ Let me take you the place like nowhere else/ Show you the things you never felt/ oh oh let me love you” 

 

  1. Home – There’s no place like home sweet home. Home is not just a building it’s much more, it’s feelings and memories. It’s almost like a time machine that can take you to happy and simple times. “Later on we’ll sit around/ Bellies tight from supper/ telling all them stories/ That we just can’t get enough of/ And somewhere in an honest laugh/ It’ll finally hit me that I’m/ Home”

 

  1. Old Town New – a blue song because of the painful past. A Town, people, and places remind of a failed relationship that’s why you have to make old town new. “Color other than blue again/ I would have something to do again/ Instead of thinking about you again/ But the people I know/ The places I go/ Remind me of you/ Oh, somebody came around/ And make this old town new”

 

  1. Open Season On My Heart“I can’t blame anyone but me/ This reckless fool I’ve come to be/ My tired excuses just don’t fit/ It don’t look good from where I sit/ I’ve tried to change without much luck/ I reached the point where I get stuck/ I hit the streets and the fireworks start/ It’s open season on my heart” 

 

  1. Forever Seventeen Letting go of past experiences and moving on in life is easier to say than to do it and contemplating life choices and past is effortless but not painless. That’s why we should remember that we’re not flawless, we make mistakes and past is the past. “A reckless lover, a father figure/ You search for both in every man you meet/ You’re not a mother ad sometimes you wonder/ if a son or daughter just might make you feel complete/ But no, you don’t need someone else/ No, it’s hard enough to learn to love yourself”

 

McGraw’s ability to hone in on all kinds of emotions through songs makes him really special, one of the kind. He performed many memorable songs and sang many amazing lesser-known tracks that will stay in the hearts of his most devoted fans.

Recently, McGraw has been teasing new music over the past year with singles including “Neon Church” and “Thought About You”, which is currently climbing up the charts. While making hints at a new album, he has been traveling all over the world playing festivals and shows for fans. This morning he released his new single “Way Down” featuring Shy Carter. The new single talks about everything you have way down south. Between Elvis, Ole Miss, Georgia girls, and Memphis heat, McGraw gives an ode to the south.

“Got the Georgia line, and the Georgia pine and a Georgia girl that’s on my mind. Way down, way down, way down, way down, way down, way down, way down, way down.”

Carter is an American songwriter, producer, and singer and you might even recognize a few of his pinned hits. His singles including Billy Currington’s “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To,” Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue,” and McGraw and Faith Hill‘s single “Speak To A Girl.” Carter also crosses over into different genres and co-wrote Charlie Puth’s hit “One Call Away.” With talent like that, it is hard to deny. From working with him on numerous projects, McGraw saw this. He shared a clip on his Instagram story of himself and Carter debuting the song themselves and clips from backstage as well from the IHeart Radio Festival. You can tell the duo are having a ton of fun performing together

You can watch the whole performance live on October 2nd during the IHeart Radio Festival on the CW at 8 PM ET/PT.
