As Tim McGraw gets ready to release his new CD, Sundown Heaven Town , next month, he’s taking aim at the charts with his new single, “Shotgun Rider.” Tim says he loves the way the song paints a picture and sets a mood.
"In my mind, you look over and see the person that you love next to you sitting in the front seat, and you think, 'How good do I have it? Life is perfect’,” he reflects. “There is a certain warmth to this song and several others like it that really establish the tone for the whole album."
On release day, Tim will team up with the man who directed the films Moneyball and Capote , Bennett Miller , to livestream a new episode of American Express Unstaged . You can watch the performance live from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom starting at 9 p.m. ET on September 16.
