Sundown Heaven Town
Label: Big Machine Records, LLC
McGraw's 13th album, Sundown Heaven Town is a modern take on his works from the 1990s. Opener "Overrated" starts off with a plunking banjo and quickly turns into a Celtic-influenced barnburner. "We amputate the heart, because we can't let 'em see the broken part," he sings with conviction. A duet with his cousin Catherine Dunn, "Diamond Rings and Old Barstools" is another stunning track that sounds like a long-lost classic and makes the most of Tim's deep-seated twang. Other highlights include the driving "Shotgun Rider," the soulful "Sick of Me" and the happy-go-lucky "Keep On Truckin'."
