We just plain downright love Tim McGraw. We love him with Faith; we love him with his daughters; we love him onstage, in the studio, heck, we even love him with green eggs and ham.
And when Tim, with his strong, tan arms, asks us to check out his new lyric video, well, we love him then, too, and then we check out the video.
Now, typically “lyric videos” are just that — the lyrics of the songs set over a nice visual for country fans to learn the songs and ready themselves for those incredibly fun singalongs that happen at country concerts. Don’t even act like you don’t sing along. We all do — even if it’s just in our heads.
Tim’s lyric video for “How I’ll Always Be” is a little more of a day-in-the-life piece. Yes, the lyrics are there and they’re done in a fun, old-school way, but the visual behind those lyrics features Tim in the studio recording “How I’ll Always Be,” along with some shots of him with his band backstage and onstage.
There are also just some sizzling hot images of Tim that may have been taken from a photo shoot and then given an artsy treatment that works splendidly with the lyrics.
The results are gorgeous. And while this beautifully shot lyric video could make a regular music video unnecessary, we still hope they make one because, as we may have mentioned, we just love Tim.
