Tim McGraw’s Chart-Toppers Compiled on New Set

leave a comment »

Add another compilation to the holiday pile: Curb Records has planned #1 Hits from country star Tim McGraw on November 30.

The Louisiana-born singer/actor first rose to prominence in 1994 with the single “Indian Outlaw,” a controversial country tune that became McGraw’s first Top 10 country hit and a crossover single as well, peaking at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. His next single, “Don’t Take the Girl,” was the first of 22 solo singles to top the country charts. Along the way, he’s scored ten platinum or multiplatinum albums, branched into acting with roles in Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom and The Blind Side and enjoyed a long-running marriage with another country megastar, singer Faith Hill.

All 22 solo chart-toppers are included (the set does not include “Bring on the Rain,” a 2001 duet with Jo Dee Messina, nor the eyebrow-raising pop crossover No. 1 “Over and Over” with rapper Nelly), along with a new song, “Felt Good on My Lips,” and a dance mix of “Indian Outlaw.” Though McGraw has had no less than three other greatest hits albums in his career (all No. 1 country albums themselves), this set – arguably the most comprehensive thus far – will likely add another chart-topper to his resume.

#1 Hits can be ordered at Amazon, and the track list is after the jump.
