After performing the song on last week’s 48th Annual CMA Awards show broadcast, Tim McGraw has released the music video for his latest single, “Shotgun Rider”.
The video itself captures footage from another live performance of Tim’s, this from his show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York as part of the American Express Unstaged series. “Shotgun Rider” is the third single from Tim’s Sundown Heaven Town album, which hit #1 on the Top County Albums chart after it’s release in September. Based on his track record of success, perhaps it’s strange that “Shotgun Rider” is looking to become his first #1 single from the album as both “Lookin’ for that Girl” and “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s(with Faith Hill)” reached the top-20 but failed to reach the top of the charts. “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” did however reach #1 on the Canadian Country chart!
McGraw is also set to bring a country flare to A Very GRAMMY Christmas, a one hour television special replacing the annual GRAMMY nominations special. Tim, a three time Grammy winner, will perform and share some holiday memories along with reflecting on what a GRAMMY nomination means to him. The show will air December 5th on CBS and will feature the announcement for the finalists in the Album of the Year category, with the rest of the nominations being unveiled earlier in the day!
