Tim McGraw Releases New Song Overrated

(Radio.com) Tim McGraw is tired of keeping up with the Joneses. At least, that's what he says on new song "Overrated," from upcoming album Sundown Heaven Town.

With plenty of banjo, foot stomping rhythms and his familiar voice, "Overrated" is an ode to the most important thing in life: love. "Baby if you're asking me, love is really all we need/Everything else is overrated…We're all running after something/But if it ain't love it's nothing," he sings.

"Overrated" is one of 13 tracks on the release and was written by Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Rivers Rutherford. McGraw said when selecting songs for his album he listens as a fan first.

"First and foremost, above anything else, I'm a fan and I'm a music fan," he said. "When I hear a demo of a song, or when I hear a song on the radio, I listen to it as a fan. As a kid listenin' to albums, when I grew up it was vinyl, you're listenin' to vinyl and you knew every crease in that album cover, down to the trademark symbol, you knew everything on it. You would listen to that music over and over and over again and you would try to pick what the next singles were gonna be. It's the same thing that I do with my records, or anybody else's records."
