Tim McGraw has released his new single “Standing Room Only,” the title track from his upcoming 17th studio album, due out later this year on Big Machine Records.
“Standing Room Only” is an introspective and heartfelt examination of what it means to truly live life fully. The track was written by Craig Wiseman, who also penned McGraw’s “Live Like You Were Dying,” Tommy Cecil and Patrick Murphy.
“‘Standing Room Only’ caught my ear the first time I heard it because of its message,” says McGraw. “For me, this song is so positive and life affirming. It isn’t about the funeral or the procession, it’s about how we live in the here and now. How do we push ourselves and in which direction do we push ourselves? For me, it’s a reminder to live a life filled with gratitude and not take things for granted. Also, it’s a reminder to give back and be there for others.”
McGraw teased the announcement of the new song by releasing a mysterious playlist of his tunes ahead of the single called “McGraw Three-ten Twenty Three” which hinted at the release date and featured song titles that spelled out “Standing Room Only” with the first letter of each track.
“Standing Room Only” follows McGraw’s 45th No. 1 country single, “7500 OBO” which was voted one of the “10 Songs I Wish I Had Written” by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI). Throughout his career, McGraw has amassed 46 No. 1 singles (all formats) and holds the Mediabase record for the most weeks at No. 1 with all titles, totaling 73 weeks.
