Tim McGraw – Sundown Heaven Town

Denne artikkelen er over ett år gammel, og kan inneholde utdatert informasjon.

Sundown Heaven Town är Tims trettonde studioalbum och släpptes 16 september i år. Albumet består av tretton låtar och Lookin’ For That Girl släpptes i början av året som första singel. Det är en låt med ett ganska elektroniskt sound och låter inte riktigt likt McGraw. För mig är den ett ganska oväntat val som första singel. Det är en av skivans sämre låtar, tycker jag. Singel nummer två var Meanwhile Back At Mama’s som han gör tillsammans med sin fru Faith Hill. Nu låter det mer som Tim igen. Låten nominerades till två priser på årets CMA Awards; Musical event of the year och Single of the year. Den 8 september släpptes Shotgun Rider som singel nummer tre.

När många av hans kollegor går mot rocken, så är Tim ändå ganska trogen countryn. De flesta av skivans låtar har ett tydligt countrysound. I en intervju med Country Weekly sa Tim att skivan vittnar om hur hans tjugo år som artist har låtit. ”You can certainly hear parts of my career throughout all of these songs, as well as the future and where my music is headed.”

Building up a stack of bones
Keeping up with the Jones
Getting us all so jacked and jaded
Baby if you’re asking me
Love is really all we need
Everything else is overrated, overrated
City Lights
And we got high on top of that ridge
We could see for miles, past the corn and the cotton and the river bridge
When the sun went down, there she was
Shinning like a big old sky full of diamond dust
I’m a cigarette burnin’ slow on a summer night
She’s city lights

Shotgun Rider
I don’t ever want to wake up,
Lookin’ into someone else’s eyes
Another Voice calling me baby
On the other end of the phone
A new girl puttin’ on her makeup
Before dinner on Friday night
No I don’t ever wanna know, Oh O
No other shotgun rider, beside me, singin’ to the radio, Woohoo Oh O


Dust in the rearview, in the cedar
Dust on the bottle, coming out of them speakers
Dust on my boots, dust on my truck
Probably got a little running in my blood
From the road I ride with that laid back seat
She’s sitting in on the passenger side
Everything I know, everything I love
Is covered up in dust

Diamond Rings And Old Barstools (with Catherine Dunn)
It ain’t like midnight and cigarette smoke
It ain’t like watered down whiskey and coke
I guess some things just don’t mix like you hoped
Like me and you
And diamond rings and old barstools


Words Are Medicine
But words are medicine, words are medicine.
When I’m black and blue, I’m broken and bruised,
I hear your voice again.
Words are medicine.


Sick Of Me
Maybe I should call you up right out of the blue
Maybe you’ll pick up and maybe I’ll get through this time
Cause all I wanna tell you is you were right
And I miss you and I’m sick of me too


Meanwhile Back At Mama’s
Meanwhile back at Mama’s
The porch light’s on, come on in if you wanna
Supper’s on the stove and beer’s in the fridge
Red sun sinkin’ out low on the ridge
Games on the tube and Daddy smokes cigarettes
Whiskey keeps his whistle wet
Funny the things you thought you’d never miss
In a world gone crazy as this


Keep On Truckin
So put your arm out the window, let your hand start surfin’.
Ain’t no thing, everything ain’t working.
Throw a little love till the world stops hurting, keep on, keep on, keep on.
Everybody’s going through a little something something.
Sing a little song with a guitar strumming.
Smile on ya brother, heard the good lord’s coming.
Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on truckin’.


Last Turn Home
Oh, Oh, thank God that we don’t have to be alone
Closer I get the more that my heart knows
You’re like that last turn home
That last turn home


Portland, Maine
Portland, Maine, I don’t know where that is
Leave your bags in the car, keep it running
I won’t pretend, I don’t want these things
But Portland, Maine, I don’t know where that is
I don’t want to know, I don’t want to know

Lookin’ For That Girl
Lookin’ for that girl, that girl, that girl
Hard to find, got me spending every night
Lookin’ for that girl, that girl, that girl
Sundown, heaven town, drivin’ ’round, hitting the bars,
Shooting the stars, rollin’ up on every party wonderin’ where you are
Lookin’ for that girl, that girl, that girl
Drivin’ me crazy, something says baby, yeah, maybe you’re that girl
That girl, that girl, that girl


Still On The Line
I just called to hear you breathing
Your last words before you’re sleeping
I can’t sleep without your body next to mine
Yeah, I know I’m always leaving
Breaking your heart, breaking even
I’m just a number in the middle of the night
But, I’m still on the line
I’m still on the line
I’m still on the line
