Tim McGraw Shares How Great It Is To Finally Find The Right One In His Song “My Best Friend”

My Best Friend - Tim McGraw
by

In 1999, Tim McGraw released “My Best Friend” as the third single from his album A Place in the Sun. The song reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and even made a decent cross-over to the pop chart, reaching No. 29 on Billboard Hot 100.

Written by Aimee Mayo and Bill Luther, “My Best Friend” tells the story of a man who’s been lonely most of his life until he finally meets someone who stays by his side and believes in him like nobody ever has. And by best friend, apparently, he means the woman he can love forever.

The Romantic Ballad Is A Special One For Tim McGraw

Although Tim McGraw didn’t have a hand in the songwriting process, it was as if the song was lifted from the pages of his diary. He even revealed that the very first time he heard the heartfelt ballad, he felt like he had sat down and actually written it.

The country crooner has previously shared that whenever he sings the song, he is dedicating every word to the most special person in his life – his wife, Faith Hill

“I don’t know where I’d be without you here with me. Life with you makes perfect sense. You’re my best friend,” McGraw sings.

Recording the song was not only an important moment for McGraw, but it was also an unforgettable experience for its songwriters. Aimee Mayo revealed that she has always been a big fan of McGraw, telling the country singer he had “made a major dream come true.” Meanwhile, “My Best Friend” was Bill Luther’s first No. 1 hit on the country chart after writing in Nashville for about twelve years.

The romantic tune was actually one of the three consecutive Tim McGraw songs released from A Place in the Sun to top the country charts. Tune in and listen to “My Best Friend” by playing the video below.
