After releasing his first solo single in more that two years with “Neon Church” in October 2018, Tim McGraw is ready to ship another song to country radio.
Tim will send his new single, “Thought About You,” to country radio on Feb. 4. The anthemic tune, which was penned by Brad Warren, Brett Warren and Lee Thomas Miller, is expected to be featured on Tim’s upcoming 15th studio album due later this year.
“‘Thought About You’ just makes me think about where I grew up and the small town that I grew up in,” says Tim. “Also it sort of makes you put together this bibliography of your life in your mind and this sort of photo album of your life in your mind. And it also . . . leaves it open to where you’re gonna go in the future. I think there’s a bit of remembrance in it. There’s also a bit of foresight in it as well. Those songs are hard to find when they can strike you emotionally that way. And another thing about this song is it’s really hard-charging when it gets to the chorus. It’s really anthemic. It sounds like a big uptempo song live, but to have a lyric that so poignant with an uptempo song is pretty rare to find.”
The nostalgic new video for “Thought About You,” which was directed by JP Robinson, highlights the song’s theme of love and friendship through a series of photographs.
