McGraw, Paisley Bring Hits In Time For Holidays

Greatest hit collections from genre superstars Brad Paisley and Tim McGraw have been previously reported on, but new details, including the track-listings have been revealed. Expect big sales from both of these fourth quarter releases, which are likely to end up under a lot of Christmas trees.

On November 30th, Curb Records will release, Number One Hits, a two-disc set featuring 22 of McGraw’s chart-topping singles. The collection will also feature two bonus tracks – a dance mix of his breakthrough 1994 hit, “Indian Outlaw,” and “Felt Good on My Lips,” McGraw’s latest single.

Number One Hits traces McGraw’s remarkable career – from his very first chart-topper, 1994’s “Don’t Take The Girl,” to this year’s “Southern Voice,” which was used in the Academy Award-nominated film The Blind Side, which co-starred Sandra Bullock and McGraw.

McGraw co-stars alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester in Country Strong, hitting theaters nationwide on January 7th, 2011, and earlier in Nashville. McGraw duets with Paltrow on “Me And Tennessee,” a song written by Paltrow’s husband, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, and included on the Country Strong soundtrack, due out October 26th. McGraw also appears with William H. Macy, Mary Steenburgen and Dwight Yoakam in the new independent comedy Dirty Girl.
