Tim McGraw and First Number One Hit ‘Don’t Take the Girl”

Tim McGraw is one of the most persistently successful artists in country music. However, he was young building his career when he scored his very first number one single in 1994. “Don’t Take the Girl” peaked at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart on May 28, 1994. Since then, he was noticed and it began his stardom.

In 1993, Tim McGraw released his debut album. However, it did not create much stir. Three of his singles even failed to top the country charts. Nevertheless, that changed with the release of his album “Not a Moment Too Soon” in 1994. His single “Indian Outlaw” reached number three while “Don’t Take the Girl” became his first number one.

It was 23 years ago when “Don’t Take the Girl” peaked at number one. But 23 years later, the song remains a vital career single for Tim McGraw for it helped him and his career rise to prominence and abetted his other significant career singles.

Don’t Take the Girl

Craig Marton and Larry W. Johnson wrote the words and lyrics of “Don’t Take the Girl.” Tim McGraw recorded the song in 1993 and released it on March 28, 1994. It was part of his album of the same name.

On the other hand, the album itself became number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and Billboard 200 charts. Also, it became the best-selling country album of 1994, and it won “Album of the Year” at the ACM Awards.

“Don’t Take the Girl” has three different verses with different stories. The first verse discusses their childhood romance. It’s about a boy named Johnny and the girl who will become his wife. The second verse deals with the lovers as teenagers and the last verse portrays their lives as adults dealing with their married life and expecting a baby. Above all, the song chronicles their love and living together in a series of different stages of a relationship.
