Colt -The Fightin' Texas Aggie

Howdy, I'm Fightin' Texas Aggie Colt, Class of 2014!

My life is defined on account of 3 things: 
  1. The Almighty God, family, and friends
  2. A quote: "Every calling is great when every calling is pursued."
  3. Music
Music is such a huge part of our lives on account of it can change the way we think, feel, and love in a matter of just a few seconds.  Whether we want to be inspired by U2, uplifted by Christian music, happy by Florida-Georgia line, or get in the zone with some rock’n’roll like ACDC or Van Halen, music is the spirit of the world. 
 
 


Top 10 Timmy McGraw Songs of All-Time

When I look back at my childhood days in the late '90s and early 2000s, no better country artist comes to mind than Tim McGraw. Every song of his relates to every country music fan out there I believe. I can still remember fishing on Lake Sam Rayburn with my dad jammin' to "Something Like That" with the sun setting in the background. Man! Good times!

Here's a list of Tim's Top 10 songs of all time... that is, until he starts creating more gold ;)

Thanks and Gig'em
 
Tim McGraw A Place in the Sun
 
10

'Something Like That'

From: 'A Place in the Sun' (1999)
 
Tim released this song in the summer of 1999 as the second single from his hit CD, 'A Place in the Sun.' With descriptive lyrics about a summer romance ("She had a suntan line and red lipstick / I worked so hard for that first kiss / A heart don't forget something like that"), this tune could almost be turned into a big-screen romantic comedy. 'Something Like That' bears the distinction of being the most played song on country radio throughout the entire decade of 2000-2010.


 
Tim McGraw Everywhere
 
9

'Just to See You Smile'

From: ‘Everywhere’ (1997)
 

Tim set a new record with this 1997 chart-topper. Staying on the charts for 42 weeks, 'Just to See You Smile' was the longest-running country single ever to chart at the time. A sad and painfully familiar tale about a man loving enough to let go, the song appeared on Tim's 'Everywhere' album, as well as on his 'Greatest Hits,' 'Greatest Hits: Limited Edition' and 'Number One Hits.'

'My Next Thirty Years'

From: 'A Place in the Sun' (1999)
 
This Phil Vassar-penned hit, the fifth and final single released from Tim's 'A Place in the Sun,' was released in the summer of 2000. Tim was 34 years old when he promised he'd "raise a little family and hang out with my wife." He was already fulfilling that with wife Faith Hill, who gave birth to their third daughter the following year. The song stayed at No. 1 for five weeks, earning a spot in the Top 10 Tim McGraw Songs.


 
Tim McGraw Highway Don't Care
 
7

'Highway Don't Care'

From: 'Two Lanes of Freedom' (2013)

McGraw scored his third straight hit single from his career-redefining album 'Two Lanes of Freedom' with 'Highway Don't Care.' He released the album via Big Machine Records after winning his way to artistic freedom in a landmark lawsuit against Curb Records. The dramatic, moody track features a guest vocal from Taylor Swift, as well as Keith Urban on guitar. Wrtten by Mark Irwin, Josh Kear, and Brett and Brad Warren, the song was yet another re-invention for McGraw, taking him in a more crossover direction.


 
Tim McGraw The Cowboy in Me
 
6

'The Cowboy in Me'

From: 'Set This Circus Down' (2001)

This song took over the No. 1 slot in November 2001, bumping label mate Jo Dee Messina's 'Bring on the Rain' (which featured McGraw on background vocals) out of the top spot. Written by Jeffrey Steele, Al Anderson and Craig Wiseman, it was the third single from 'Set This Circus Down.' With painfully honest lines such as, "The face that's in the mirror when I don't like what I see / I guess that's just the cowboy in me," this song is still a favorite for live audiences a decade later.


 

 
Tim McGraw Set This Circus Down
 
5

'Angry All the Time'

From: 'Set This Circus Down' (2001)
 

A memorable duet with wife, Faith Hill, this 2001 hit was a sharp departure from the romance the couple convey in real life. Written by Bruce Robison, its gut-wrenching lyrics took the song to No. 1 for two weeks. A sample: "Our boys are strong now, the spitting image of you when you were young / I hope someday they can see past what you have become." The song is a strong example of something most Nashville artists wouldn't have cut, qualifying as one of the Top 10 Tim McGraw Songs.
 

 
Tim McGraw It's Your Love
 
4

'It's Your Love' (With Faith Hill)

From: 'Everywhere' (1997)
 
The first duet McGraw sang with his wife, Faith Hill,  also became his first Top 10 on the pop chart. The debut single from his 1997 album, 'Everywhere,' the accompanying video to the song featured a very pregnant Faith, who was only weeks away from delivering the couple's first child, Gracie. The romantic tune stayed at the top of the charts for six full weeks. The song is one of several hit duets the pair have recorded.


 

 
Tim McGraw If You're Reading This
 
3

'If You're Reading This'

From: 'Let It Go' (2007)
 
Tim co-wrote this song with the Brad and Brett Warren, after reading a magazine article about the numerous casualties of war. The powerful song, written from the perspective of a soldier who leaves his loved ones a letter in case he doesn't make it home, was debuted at the 2007 ACM Awards, with families of soldiers sharing the stage with McGraw. While it was never intended as a single, numerous radio stations started airing the live performance, and a remixed live version was released in June. It eventually went to No. 3 on the country chart.

 
 
Tim McGraw Grown Men Don't Cry
 
2

'Grown Men Don't Cry'

From: 'Set This Circus Down' (2001)

One of the most heart-wrenching, emotional songs of McGraw's legendary career, this was the first single from 2001's 'Set This Circus Down.' Penned by Tom Douglas and Steve Seskin, the song's tender opening lines, "All mornin' I'd been thinkin' my life's so hard / And they wore everything they own / Livin' in a car ... I don't know why they say grown men don't cry," make it a perennial radio favorite. It reached No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart, and No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100.

 
 
Tim McGraw Live Like You Were Dying
 
1

'Live Like You Were Dying'

From: 'Live Like You Were Dying (2004)
 
It's one of the biggest songs of McGraw's career, and for good reason. Relaying the story of a man diagnosed with a terminal illness, and choosing to spend his remaining days "sky diving" and "Rocky Mountain climbing," the song became even more powerful when Tim lost his own father, baseball great Tug McGraw, in January 2004 -- the same month the song was released. A No. 1 country song for seven weeks, it also landed at No. 4 on the Adult Contemporary chart.
