When Tim McGraw first hit the scene, many felt that he represented a new style of country music that was non-traditional; a style that was more pop-rock than anything else. Now, on the eve of his new album release titled ‘Sundown Heaven Town,’ he is being heralded as the exact opposite.

McGraw’s 13th studio album – his third in the previous three years – comes at a time where what many refer to as “bro-country” dominates the charts.

With songs like ‘Meanwhile Back at Mama’s,’ you get that old school sound from McGraw.

There is undoubtedly a sense of nostalgia that comes with traditional-sounding country music, but doesn’t all music evolve at some point? Have other genres like rap, rock and pop not changed over the decades?

That traditional sound will always be there; but maybe we’re at a time where another type of country sound will share the same stage.

What do you think?
