Tim McGraw is back with new music (that Jason pretty much hates) in the form of his new single Lookin' For That Girl, and the newly announced Sundown Heaven Town 2014 Tour.
Is it just me or is that like THE hardest tour name ever to try and remember? I can already imagine myself calling it the Sundowners Tour or the Sunny Heaven Tour or other variations of the name.
Coming on the heels of three consecutive #1 smash hits and a sold out tour in 2013, Superstar Tim McGraw is riding major momentum into the new year with brand new music and plans for an even bigger summer ahead. "Lookin' For That Girl," the lead single from his next Big Machine Records release, is available to radio today and to fans for purchase at iTunes on Jan. 21.
Entertainment Weekly is offering a first listen of the song available here.
"This last year was unbelievable, and I don't have any plans to let off the gas now. We didn't want to waste any time getting new music out," said McGraw. "With every album, my approach is to push a few of my own boundaries and try things I've never done before. It was hard to choose a lead single off this project because I really felt like we had six or seven good options. I kept coming back to 'Lookin For That Girl' because even though it may be a little different for me sonically, I couldn't get it out of my head!"
The SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN 2014 TOUR will kick off in May on the West Coast. McGraw's "characteristically high-octane" (Billboard) show will hit 30 cities over the course of the summer. Fans can purchase tickets beginning Jan. 24 for select cities as part of Live Nation's Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com.
