Country music superstar Tim McGraw will release his 13th studio album, “Sundown Heaven Town” on September 16, 2014. The album is his second for Big Machine Records. In honor of that, I’ve compiled what I feel are the ten best songs of his career so far.
Tim McGraw was born in Delhi, Louisiana on May 1, 1967. He grew up playing sports, and attended the University of Louisiana in Monroe on a baseball scholarship. It was while he was in college that he started getting interested in music, and he took up guitar, playing and singing for tips.
After his mother moved to Jacksonville, Florida, Tim followed her, enrolling in Florida Community College for a term, still playing music with local bands. It was on May 9, 1989, the day that the legendary Keith Whitley died, that Tim decided to pursue music, so he dropped out of college, and he moved to Nashville.
In 1990, a rep from Curb records heard a demo that McGraw recorded, and Curb signed him to a record deal. Tim released his self-titled debut album in 1992.
Since that time, Tim has accrued 25 No. 1 singles, and sold over 40 million units, making him the eighth best-selling artist of the Soundscan era.
