Tim McGraw announces ‘Standing Room Only’

New single drops March 10th

Tim McGraw will release his new single, “Standing Room Only,” on March 10th via Big Machine Records. The multi-faceted country star confirms the title after cryptically revealing it through a newly created “Rediscover Tim McGraw” playlist earlier this week that features a mix of hits and album cuts. Eagle eyed fans discovered that the first letter of each song on the playlist spelled out “Standing Room Only.”

“Some of you guessed it! New single ‘Standing Room Only’ coming March 10th,” McGraw shares on social media on Wednesday (Mar 1st). “If we get 1,000 pre-saves on this today I’ll share a little bit of the song with you.”

Earlier this week, McGraw teased, “So I made a playlist and there’s probably just a little more to it than JUST the songs on the playlist. Pay attention and then check it out on March 10th. I think you’ll be surprised.”

McGraw’s last project, Here on Earth, was released in August 2020 followed by Here On Earth: Ultimate Edition and Here On Earth Ultimate Video Edition in spring 2021. Here On Earth was produced by McGraw and Byron Gallimore, and marked the first new music from the country superstar since returning to Big Machine the year prior.

Here on Earth is McGraw’s 16th studio album. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its release. It marks the 17th time McGraw has topped the Billboard Country Album chart, tying him for second most No. 1 albums, just behind George Strait. It’s also the 18th McGraw project to reach No. 1 worldwide.
