article imageReview: Tim McGraw back with best song to date: Meanwhile Back At Mama's Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jun 27, 2014 in Music
Country music mega-star Tim McGraw is back with his latest single "Meanwhile Back at Mama's" and his music video for the song, featuring wife, country songstress Faith Hill.
The song was penned by such esteemed songwriters as Tom Douglas (who wrote Martina McBride's "Loves The Only House), Jaren Johnston from The Cadillac Three, as well as Jeffrey Steele (who wrote Rascal Flatt's "What Hurts The Most"). It is the second single from his forthcoming studio album, Sundown Heaven Town, which will be released on his label, Big Machine Records.
It has a traditional country sound, which is rare for most modern country songs these days, and it is simple yet beautiful vocal performance and it has a poignant message to it, that is certain to resonate well with their fans. By the end of the song, they will all wish that they were back at their own mother's houses.

Hill lends her beautiful harmony vocals on this tune, and it makes it more sentimental. The acoustic guitar heard on the tune accompanies both of their voices eloquently.
The inclusion of Faith Hill in the music video is pure genius in his part, since they give us a glimpse into their personal lives (their home, kitchen and farm), which is something that they are known for keeping private.
It really paints a picture in the minds of the listeners thanks to its use of everyday imagery in the lyrics. "The porch light's on, come on in if you wanna, Supper's on the stove and beer's in the fridge, Red sun sinkin' out low on the ridge," he sings.
"Meanwhile Back at Mama's" is doing well on country radio, sitting in the Top 15 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts.
The Verdict
This is one of the best songs that I have heard from Tim McGraw in years. While I respect him immensely as an artist, most of his radio singles are either hit or miss for me. This one is definitely a keeper. He seems to make musical magic each time he sings duets with Faith Hill. It garners 4.5 out of 5 stars.
