Tim McGraw Made Faith Hill Cry with “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s”

Tim McGraw knew he had to record “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s” the moment he played it for his wife, Faith Hill.  Tim tells the Associated Press he played her a demo of the song and she started crying at the end.

Tim told her, “I’m going to record it and you’re going to record it with me.” He says they haven’t done that many songs together, and they only do songs they think are special to them. He says “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s” was one of those songs.

Tim’s new album, “Sundown Heaven Town,” is available NOW.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill give a glimpse into home life in their new music video for “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s.” The couple shot the video on their Tennessee farm.

The reason I picked the farm is because anytime I can be at the farm, I wanna be at the farm,” McGraw told Entertainment Tonight about shooting the nostalgic video. “I don’t get out there enough, so if you can combine having to work with a little bit of hanging out at the farm at the same time, then that’s always a good thing.”

“Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” is the lead single off McGraw’s new album, Sundown Heaven Town, out Sept. 16th.

A highlight of the event was attendance by 90-year old WWII veteran Henry Shaw who had just received his combat medals thanks from the help of Stand Down Nashville. Special dignitaries attending included members of the Tennessee National Guard led by Lt Col Jim Reed and veterans Shaun Meadows, Luke Van Dorston, and Allen Hill.

Other country music celebrities and song writers included Faith Hill, Brantley Gilbert, The Warren Brothers, Craig Campbell, Deano Brown, Ira Dean, Keith Anderson, Lance Miller, Kristy Lee Cook, Daryle Singletary, Matt Bailie, and the LoCash Cowboys, plus ESPN analyst John Kruk.

Professional contingent for the event included Maximum Archery’s Andy Ross, Aaron and Steve Gould of the Gould Brothers Exhibition Shooting, and Mark Weeks from the United States Army Exhibition Team.

The 23 teams consisting of four amateurs, one professional, and a music celebrity took turns at multiple target presentations simulating the unpredictability of live-quarry, each offering a variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes.
