Damn Country Music

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Tim McGraw; Release Date: 11/06/2015; Music Label: Big Machine

With more than 40 million albums sold, the country king isn’t giving in to Nashville trends, so on his 14th studio LP, McGraw does what he damn well pleases: The album avoids bro country for slow-rolling soul-searchers and uplifting soft-rockers. While he’s not taking risks—even a duet with daughter Gracie is a lovely echo of his classic songs with wife Faith Hill—these tunes are as comfy as a pair of worn Lucchese boots. B
