Tim McGraw has returned with his latest song, “Hallelujahville.”
The piano-driven ballad, written by McGraw, Tom Douglas and Blake Griffith, captures the beautiful simplicity of small-town life. “Don’t call us small town, never have been, never will / It’s a cold beer sundown and we eat what we kill / We marry angels and dance with the devil in a place where time stands still / Can I get an Amen for livin’ in Hallelujahville,” McGraw sings proudly on the chorus.
“We played this song out on the road last year, and we know you’ve been waiting for it,” the country singer wrote on Instagram. McGraw has played the song at various concerts, most notably at the 2019 iHeartCountry Festival.
“Hallelujahville” is taken from McGraw’s forthcoming 15th studio album, Here on Earth. According to a press release, the 16-track record will provide a “musical tapestry of life and a shared experience that we can use to connect all the different lives that we live, all the different parts of the world that we come from and use music as the universal language to bring people together.”
The LP will also include its lead single “I Called Mama,” which dropped in May in conjunction with Mother’s Day. Prior to this, McGraw released the standalone songs “Neon Church” and “Thought About You.” His last album was 2015’s Damn Country Music.
Here on Earth is due out August 21. While you wait for it, stream “Hallelujahville” below:
