Holy early eighties, Batman. Tim McGraw revives a smooth ballad from the catalog of Urban Cowboy deity Eddie Rabbitt with satisfying results. It’s not exactly difficult to imagine McGraw suspecting that every guy in the room wants to steal the woman on his arm, and his vocal performance oozes with insecurity. The arrangement is true to the original, so it can’t help sounding a bit dated, but it’s charming in a very retro way.
