55-year-old Tim McGraw just put out a playlist of 16 songs. All his songs – some were hits, others are deeper cuts. He says that there’s also a SECRET REASON behind it. In a video, he says, “So I made a playlist, and there’s probably just a little more to it than just the songs on the playlist. Pay attention, and check it out on March 10th. I think you’ll be surprised.” The first letter of all the songs spells out “STANDING ROOM ONLY” . . . of an upcoming tour . . . a live album . . . or a new studio album.

You really haven’t made it. You’re not over the hump. [So] I bought a bulldozer.”
