    'Highway Don't Care'

    From 'Two Lanes of Freedom' (2013)

    McGraw's super collaboration with Keith Urban and Taylor Swift is one of the greatest of events of the decade. Each artist brings their own unique style and sound to this dramatic ballad from 'Two Lanes of Freedom.' It's a song that cuts through the heart even before viewing the powerful music video. The No. 1 hit was the third single from the album, but the most important one. It gave a jolt of energy to McGraw's second act.

    'My Next Thirty Years'

    From A Place in the Sun (1999)

    In April of 2000, Tim McGraw shot to the top with My Next Thirty Years, a song penned by Phil Vassar. Vassar put into words what most everyone wonders and thinks when they approach a milestone birthday. The fun song, filled with resolutions for a better life, stayed put at No. 1 for five weeks. The Vassar/McGraw collaboration is a favorite on our list of the Top 10 Tim McGraw songs.

    'Meanwhile Back at Mama's (Feat. Faith Hill)

    From Sundown Heaven Town (2014)

    McGraw's second album on Big Machine includes songs that draw inspiration from all parts of his two-decade-long career. 'Meanwhile Back at Mama's' is soaked in understated emotion, much like 'Just to See You Smile' and 'Everywhere,' two other songs on this list. Time will tell where this duet with wife Faith Hill ends up among their all-time greatest works. It's hard to argue she's not perfect for the part.

  • 7

    'My Best Friend'

    From A Place in the Sun (1999)

    In 1999, My Best Friend soared to No. 1 for the Delhi, Louisiana native. During the late 90s, Tim McGraw dominated country radio playlists and won his first trophy for CMA Male Vocalist of the Year. The song still remains a popular choice for the first dance at many wedding receptions and deserves a solid showing at No. 6 on our list of the Top 10 Tim McGraw songs.

  • 6

    'Just to See You Smile'

    From Everywhere (1997)

    Just to See You Smile addresses the bittersweet subject of relationship loss. Powered by a banjo-driven melody similar to that of Glen Campbells Gentle on My Mind, the song reached out to men whove had to put a fake smile on their face when seeing a lost love with their new flame.

  • 5

    'Please Remember Me'

    From A Place in the Sun (1999)

    Rodney Crowell has penned many country classics through the years, but one of the most compelling came with Tim McGraws rendition of Please Remember Me. Backed by the powerful vocals of Patty Loveless, the song had an emotional impact on people mourning the loss of a loved one or the loss of a relationship.

  • 4

    'Something Like That'

    From A Place in the Sun (1999)

    Released in 1999, McGraw's Something Like That has the distinction of being the most played song on country radio throughout the entire decade of 2000-2010. The rockin song filled with memories of a first love struck a chord especially with teenagers, who were experiencing the feelings firsthand.

  • 3

    'Its Your Love' (with Faith Hill)

    From Everywhere (1997)

    When Tim McGraw and Faith Hill married in 1996, country music fans were finally happy to have another first couple in the genre. There hadnt been such a powerhouse duo since George Jones and Tammy Wynette! Fortunately, McGraw and Hill have seen a much better public relationship, coupled with hit duets like Its Your Love that reflect that happy union.

  • 2

    'Dont Take the Girl'

    From Not a Moment Too Soon (1994)

    In 1994, Tim McGraw released the follow-up to his breakthrough hit Indian Outlaw. Dont Take the Girl embraced the story song category, which has always been an integral part of country music. Listeners were drawn to the tale of little Johnny learning how to fish, falling in love and bravely facing a tragedy that tested his faith. Dont Take the Girl is a must-have on our list of the best Tim McGraw songs.

  • 1

    'Live Like You Were Dying'

    From Live Like You Were Dying (2004)

    Ten years after Tim McGraws first Top 10 hit, the singer proved that he could still deliver. Although the song was not written by the country star, it is associated with his father, Tug McGraw, who was hospitalized with a brain tumor in 2003. Tug died January 5, 2004 while the song tailor-made for the scenario rose to No. 1 six months later, on June 5, 2004. Packed with lyrics to live by, this song earned both a Grammy and a CMA Award for Song of the Year. Its power is what makes it our No. 1 pick for the Top 10 Tim McGraw Songs list.

"Everywhere" is a song written by Mike Reid and Craig Wiseman, and performed by American country music singer Tim McGraw. It was released in July 1997 as the second single from his album of the same name. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and peaked at number 2 on the RPM Country Tracks chart in Canada. Despite reaching Number One on Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (Now Hot Country Songs), the song did not appear on McGraw's Greatest Hits album. It did, however, later appear on his second Greatest Hits package, Reflected: Greatest Hits Vol. 2.

Content

The narrator describes a former significant other and her decision to end their relationship after a disagreement over their future together as a couple he foresees plans on leaving the small community in which they were both born and raised, and live a life of travel in hopes that she would accompany him in such life, but she steadfastly insists in staying in said community. Almost from the instant that the narrator begins his traveling life, he claims that he sees his significant other, albeit in spirit, appearing in every destination in North America that he visits. Furthermore, whenever he does return to their hometown, he is regularly informed by its residents of her new life - she has married another man and they have subsequently started a family together. And although the narrator reaches the conclusion that his significant other is no longer in his life, he nevertheless proclaims that he will eternally carry her spirit with him in his travels with great emotion just as he always has.

Critical reception

Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song an A grade, saying that its "understated delivery packs the song with such emotional heft that the unresolved sadness lingers after the song has ended." He goes on to call it the moment where McGraw discovers "subtlety and finds it suits him quite well."[1]

Music video

The music video was directed by Sherman Halsey, who has also directed virtually all of McGraw's other videos.

Lawsuit

In 2007, songwriter James Martinez filed a $20 million lawsuit against McGraw, Reid and Wiseman. The suit alleges that McGraw lifted Everywhere from an audio cassette tape containing Martinez' original track "Anytime, Anywhere, Amanda." Martinez provided the cassette to the same songwriters who wrote the song "Everywhere" for McGraw's 1997 album of the same name. The suit also alleges that McGraw and other defendants internationally released and distributed the Everywhere album containing their infringing copies of a song substantially similar to the Martinez's song. McGraw's attorneys stated that they are confident the case will be dismissed altogether, and described the allegations as being "totally without merit." In August 2008, the lawsuit was transferred from Texas to the federal district court in Nashville, Tennessee. The lawsuit is ongoing as of 2017, with Martinez now being represented by Bill Ramey of Ramey & Browning in Houston, Texas.[2]

Chart positions

"Everywhere" debuted at number 72 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of July 5, 1997.

"Tim McGraw" is the debut single and first published song recorded by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. The song was written by Swift and Liz Rose, and produced by Nathan Chapman. It was released on June 19, 2006 by Big Machine Records as the lead single from her self-titled debut album. Swift wrote "Tim McGraw" during her freshman year of high school, knowing that she and her senior boyfriend would break up at the end of the year when he left for college. The song was written about all the different things that would remind the subject of Swift and their time spent together, once he departed. "Tim McGraw" is a musical interconnection of traditional and modern country music. Lyrically, the track lists items in order to associate a past relationship, one of them being country artist Tim McGraw's music.

"Tim McGraw" performed well commercially. The track spent various weeks upon both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Country Songs in the United States. It peaked at number 40 on the former and number six on the latter. The single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and has sold more than one million copies since its release. The accompanying music video for "Tim McGraw", directed by Trey Fanjoy, comprises flashbacks by Swift's love interest, among cut scenes that feature Swift lying on a lake bed. "Tim McGraw" was promoted by Swift on a radio tour and performances in numerous venues. Swift performed it while serving as opening act for various country artists' concert tours. She also performed it as part of her first headlining concert tour, the Fearless Tour (200910).

Background

Taylor Swift and Liz Rose wrote "Tim McGraw" during Swift's freshman year at Hendersonville High School. She conceived the idea in the midst of her mathematics class: "I was just sitting there, and I started humming this melody." She then related the melody to a predicament she was encountering at the moment.[1] Swift knew that she and her senior boyfriend would break up at the end of the year when he left for college. In order to cope with the complicated emotions she was experiencing, Swift wrote the song. Rose said Swift showed up at her after school job, writing songs for Sony/ATV Music, "with the idea and the melody, knowing exactly what she wanted." She desired for the song to capture the sweetness and sadness of loving and losing someone. It was written about all the different things that would remind the subject of Swift and their time spent together, once he departed. "To her surprise, the first thing that came to mind was [her] love of Tim McGraw's music."[2] Several personal details were listed for the song. McGraw's mentioning was a reference to Swift's favorite song, "Can't Tell Me Nothin" from his 2004 album Live Like You Were Dying,[3] rather than McGraw as a person.[4] The writing process, as with "Our Song", took place in approximately twenty minutes,[5] and was executed with the use of a piano.[6]

Soon after, Scott Borchetta, CEO of Big Machine Records, signed Swift to his newly formed label.[2] Early into the album production, in a meeting where Borchetta and Swift discussed potential songs for Swift's debut album, she performed "Tim McGraw" for Borchetta on fluke ukulele. According to Swift, as soon as Borchetta finished listening to the song, he faced Swift and said, "That's your first single." She responded, "Well. That's how that works then."[2] Prior to that event, Swift did not believe that the song was single material. However, she followed what label executives told her and accepted that they were correct.[7] Swift placed "Tim McGraw" as the first track on Taylor Swift because of its importance to her.[6] The song was eventually released as a CD single on June 19, 2006.[8] In retrospect, Swift has said that the song "is reminiscent, and it is thinking about a relationship you had and then lost. I think one of the most powerful human emotions is what should have been and wasn't... That was a really good song to start out on, because a lot of people can relate to wanting something you can't have."[2] When the song's subject discovered it, he thought it was "cool" and kept friendship with Swift despite their breakup.[9]

Composition

"Tim McGraw" is a country song with a length of three minutes and 52 seconds.[10] The song mingles traditional and modern country music features, primarily through its usage of a twelve-string guitar.[11] It is set in common time and has a moderate tempo of 72 beats per minute.[12] Thus, it is categorized as a ballad with a mid-paced nature.[13] It is written in the key of C major and Swift's vocals span one octave, from F3 to G4.[12] Swift's vocals are prominent in twang.[13] "Tim McGraw" follows the chord progression C5AmFGsusG.[12]

The lyrics of "Tim McGraw" regard a summer romance that came to a sudden halt.[11] The song fondly reminisces an ex-boyfriend,[14] and directs the lyrics towards him, rather than country singer Tim McGraw himself. It uses McGraw's music as a marker in their relationship timeline: "When you think Tim McGraw / I hope you think my favorite song."[15] Sean Dooley of About.com stated, "Music has the power to evoke memories, and it's an old Tim McGraw song that triggers her happy memories."[14] McGraw's reference is one of the several items used for association of the failed relationship, along with other items and places, such as a little black dress.[15]

Critical reception

The song was well received by critics. Rob Sheffield of Blender magazine described the track as a gem that hit hard.[16] Sean Dooley of About.com complimented Swift's vocal delivery, describing it as "tender and emotive." [14] Jonathan Keefe of Slant Magazine believe "Tim McGraw" followed "time-tested narrative conventions and [...] massive pop hooks."[17] Jeff Tamarkin of Allmusic said that the song demonstrated Swift was "a talent to be reckoned with", because of her vocal delivery that, according to him, equated that of a seasoned professional. He selected "Tim McGraw" as Taylor Swift's main highlight for its homage to Tim McGraw, commenting, "It's a device that's been used countless times in as many ways [...], yet it works as a hook here and manages to come off as an original idea."[15] Rick Bell of Country Standard Time stated, "It's an impressive debut that, while she pines about lost love and Tim McGraw, will likely have others singing the praises of Taylor Swift."[18] Roger Holland of PopMatters praised the song, commenting it was "good enough to recall some of the best country singles of recent years", such as Rachel Proctor's "Me and Emily" and Julie Roberts's "Break Down Here." He complimented Swift's vocal abilities on the song, saying it was executed "quite perfectly", something she was unable to carry throughout the album Taylor Swift. However, Holland was repugnant of the song's title.[13] In 2007, "Tim McGraw" was listed as a "Winning Song" by Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI).[19]

Chart performance

On the week ending September 23, 2006, "Tim McGraw" debuted at number 86 on the Billboard Hot 100.[20] After 17 weeks of ascending and descending the chart, on the week ending January 13, 2007, the song reached its peak at number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it maintained for two consecutive weeks.[21] On the week ending February 3, 2007, the song spent its last week on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 43, after a total of 20 weeks on the chart.[22] The single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for the shipment of over 1,000,000 copies.[23] As of November 2017, "Tim McGraw" has sold 1.6 million copies in the United States.[24]

Prior to charting on the United States' main chart, "Tim McGraw" charted on Billboard Hot Country Songs. On the week ending July 1, 2006, "Tim McGraw" debuted at number 60 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs.[25] After spending 25 weeks upon Billboard Hot Country Songs, the song reached the top 10 with its new peak of number 10 on the week ending December 16, 2006.[26] In the proceeding six weeks, the song managed remained on the top 10 until finding its peak at number six on the week ending January 27, 2007.[21] "Tim McGraw" spent a total of 35 weeks upon the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.[21]

Music video

The accompanying music video for "Tim McGraw" was directed by Trey Fanjoy. It was filmed at the former home of Johnny & June Carter-Cash, which burned down the next year. The letter which the boyfriend receives is addressed to "Johnny" for this purpose.[27] In regards to the video's concept, Swift stated, "It deals with the haunting power of music and how hearing a song years after it was first popular can have such an emotional appeal."[28] Clayton Collins portrayed Swift's love interest in the music video. He was cast because of his physical resemblance to the real subject of the song, in that they were both tall with dark hair.[29] The video begins with Swift, dressed by a white sundress, as she lies on the grass of a lake-bed and holds a transistor radio. Suddenly, the setting is switched to Collins as he drives a white and orange 1970 Chevrolet CST-10. He then turns his radio on and ceases driving, coming to a complete stop on a road. As Collins facial expressions become more serious, he flashbacks to memories with Swift. Swift and Collins are seen frolicking in a field, lying beside another on the back of Collins' CST-10, staring at the stars together, holding hands as they walk, and slow dancing. When the song is in its final chorus, Collins arrives at a wooden cabin in his pick-up truck. He runs up the staircase to discover an enveloped letter next to the door. He then sits on the staircase, opens the envelope, and reads the letter. The video transcends towards Swift playing an acoustic guitar as she leans against the wooden cabin. Cut-scenes feature Swift lying on the lake-bed and performing with a guitar next to the wooden cabin. The video concludes with Swift, once again, lying on the initial setting.

The video premiered on July 22, 2006 on Great American Country.[28] The video received a nomination for "Number One Streamed Video From a New Artist (Rookie of the Year Award)" at the web-hosted 2006 CMT Online Awards, but lost to Lindsey Haun's video for "Broken".[30] At the 2007 CMT Music Awards, the video won the CMT Music Award for "Breakthrough Video of the Year".[31] To date, the video has over 41 million views on YouTube.

Live performances

Swift spent six months of 2006 promoting "Tim McGraw" and Taylor Swift on a radio tour.[1] She performed the song as she opened for Rascal Flatts on several dates, from October 19 to November 3, 2006, included on the Me and My Gang Tour (200607).[34] Swift performed "Tim McGraw" as the concert's penultimate performance. She dressed in a black, knee-length dress and red cowboy boots with a design of a skull and cross bones across it, playing an acoustic guitar. Swift requested for the audience to raise their cell phones in order to simulate a sky filled with stars, when the song reached the lyrics "He said the way my blue eyes shined / Put those Georgia stars to shame that night / I said that's a lie."[35] She also performed the song when she served as opening act on twenty dates for George Strait's 2007 United States tour,[36] and selected dates for Brad Paisley's Bonfires & Amplifiers Tour in 2007.[37][38] During mid-2007, Swift engaged as the opening act on several dates for Tim McGraw's and Faith Hill's joint tour, Soul2Soul II Tour (200607), where she again performed "Tim McGraw".[39] Swift performed the song while she was again opening for Rascal Flatts for their Still Feels Good Tour in 2008.[40]

Swift's first broadcast performance of "Tim McGraw" was on October 24, 2006, on Good Morning America.[34] She continued promotion for the track at Billboard headquarters,[41] the 2007 Academy of Country Music Awards,[42] The Engine Room,[43] and a concert at the Apple Store in SoHo, New York, which was recorded and released as a live extended play (EP), iTunes Live from SoHo, exclusively sold through the iTunes Store.[44] Since completing promotion for Taylor Swift and its corresponding singles, Swift has performed "Tim McGraw" at the 2009 CMA Music Festival,[45] the 2009 V Festival,[46] and the Australian charity concert Sydney Sound Relief.[47]

Swift performed "Tim McGraw" on all venues of her first headlining concert tour, the Fearless Tour, which extended from April 2009 to June 2010. The performances of "Tim McGraw" set on a small platform located at the opposite end, parallel to the stage in the arena.[48] Swift, dressed in a pastel sundress, sat on a wooden stool while performing with wooden acoustic guitar strapped to her shoulder.[48][49] Swift then completed the performance standing and walking back to the main stage. As she worked her way back to the stage, she again hugged fans, squeezed their outstretched hands and scrawled quick autographs.[48] Nicole Frehsee of Rolling Stone favored Swift's performance of "Tim McGraw" at the August 27, 2009, concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Frehsee described the entire concert as an "elaborate spectacle that doesn't slow down, even when the singer hauls her acoustic guitar into the audience to play a sweet, stripped down set of tunes including [..] 'Tim McGraw'."[49] Brandy McDonnel of The Oklahoman reported a massive sing-along by the audience at the March 31, 2010, concert at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City.[48] Molly Trust of Billboard attended the performance at the tour's final concert on June 5, 2010, at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts and conjectured that the performance's setting was formed in order to "afford a better view to fans farther back."[50]

Swift performed "Tim McGraw" during the first show in Toronto and the performance in Charlotte during The Red Tour, in place of "I Almost Do". Additionally, she performed a piano version of the song in Nashville, during the Reputation Stadium Tour, with special guests Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.[51]
