Retro Single Review: Tim McGraw, “For a Little While”


February 26, 2012

1998 | Peak: #2

As far as the Everywhere hits are concerned, this sixth and final single is the most frothy and least substantial.

That’s not to say it isn’t an entertaining listen, and in a way, it might be the most historically significant of the singles, given that it’s the blueprint for countless Kenny Chesney hits that followed.

Written by Steve Mandile, Jerry Vandiver, and Phil Vassar

Grade: B

    I never really got much out of this song. Not really sure why. I guess neither the melody nor the lyric really grabbed me in any meaningful way.

    I think this song is really underrated of all the late 90s singles from Tim. Yeah there were tons of nostalgia songs to follow some good and some bad, but I would prefer more songs like this on the radio today than “Bait A Hook” by an artist I will leave unnamed.
