Retro Single Review: Tim McGraw, “Not a Moment Too Soon”

1994 | Peak: #1

The intense heat of McGraw’s record sales helped propel a handful of middling songs to the upper rungs of the chart.

This one went all the way to #1.   Fair enough, as it’s quite a few notches above the singles that came before and after it.  It has a sense of its own scale, with a beefed-up production that doesn’t get too overwhelming.  That’s a good match for a song that makes bold claims of love but without too many superfluous or sappy lyrical images.

He’s still singing a bit too high, but this one won’t make the alley cats come runnin’.
