(AUDIO) Tim McGraw Says The Right Songs Are The Ones That Feel Good

July 28, 2013

Tim McGraw has a knack for picking great songs for his albums, like his current single, “Southern Girl,” and he says the one thing they all have in common is that they all feel good from the beginning. “It’s more about how it feels to me when I’m doing it… the ones that you really can tell are really working that you like a lot are the ones that come out really easily because you’re not paying attention to it. You’re not working at it. When you sing something and a pass goes by… like the ones that feel good, feel good from the beginning.” Ultimately the songs that make his albums tend to reveal themselves through the recording process because Tim says, “Rarely does one feel great. I mean, they all feel great, but rarely does one that goes down so smoothly and so easily and you sing it so naturally, doesn’t make the record. That rarely happens.” Another good sign that a song is going to be a keeper for Tim is when he just wants to keep singing it over and over. Tim says that’ll happen sometimes in the studio until the band is finally like, “We got it. We don’t need to do this one anymore.”

Tim McGraw – what made songs stand out :36

“It’s more about how it feels to me when I’m doing it, so it’s gotta come—the ones that you really can tell are really working that you like a lot are the ones that come out really easily because you’re not paying attention to it. You’re not working at it. When you sing something and a pass goes by..like the ones that feel good, feel good from the beginning. Rarely does one feel great. I mean, they all feel great. But rarely does one that goes down so smoothly and so easily and you sing it so naturally, doesn’t make the record. That rarely happens. You wanna keep singing it, keep singing it, keep singing it until the band’s like, ‘We got it. We don’t need to do this one anymore.’”
