Single Review: Tim McGraw, “Shotgun Rider”

“Shotgun Rider” Tim McGraw Written by Marv Green, Hillary Lindsey, and Troy Verges Tim McGraw’s been getting his groove back lately.  Much of his new album, Sundown Heaven Town, recalls the sound of his biggest turn-of-the-century hits without sounding dated. “Shotgun Rider” is a great example of this, having that wistful, floating on air quality that made “Just to See You Smile” and “For a Little While” so infectious.  Sure, he’s singing about riding around town in his truck with a pretty girl.  Hardly groundbreaking lyrical territory these days.

Single Review: Hunter Hayes, “Tattoo”
