Tim McGraw – Tim McGraw & Friends (2013)
Tim McGraw has a long history of recording with his Nashville buddies, and sadly, the majority of these tunes dont end up on his albums. They are scattered throughout the vast musical landscape. This collection puts a couple hands-full together, as a last gasp for Tim’s former record label. Shameless as it may be, it’s right on the money. There are some real staples here like “It’s your Love” with his nearly equally famous wife, and the Country Strong duet with Ms. paltrow, “Me and Tennessee.” But where this one really shines, are the more rare gems, such as the brilliant Texas Swing number with Kenny Rogers, “Owe Them More Than That,” and the old school Honky Tonker, “Middle Age Crazy” with Jerry Lee Lewis. We are also treated to the rowdy love-gone-wrong song, “Cant Hurt A Man,” with the legendary Randy Travis.
