Tim McGraw recently made news with his signing with Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Records. On Friday afternoon, he took time to share with a few industry insiders some of the new music that he has been working on for his debut for the label.
The four cuts that he showcased included a few different styles ranging from traditional to a Spanish-flavored honky tonker, and the attendees seemed to enjoy the works-in-progress. McGraw embraced the opportunity to play some of his new creations for the crowd. It was the start of a busy weekend for the singer, who co-headlined with Kenny Chesney as the “Brothers Of The Sun” tour hit Music City’s LP Field on Saturday.
Some of the more prominent names at the event Friday included radio powers Tim Roberts (WYCD / Detroit), John Crenshaw (WCOL / Columbus) and Charlie Monk (Sirius / XM).
McGraw has established one of the most successful careers in the format, and after hearing the new music — it’s a sure bet that he will add to his ever-growing legacy. Each song was impressive, with one particular ballad sure to find a place in the hearts of his dedicated fans. Since “Indian Outlaw” in 1994, the singer has placed 46 records inside the top ten on the Hot Country Songs chart — including collaborations with wife Faith Hill and Jo Dee Messina.
No word on how many other songs McGraw has cut for the album, or when it will be released.
