‘Songs of America:’ Tim McGraw’s New Book is Political

Tim McGraw has another project in the works. Entitled ‘Songs of America,’ it focuses on the songs that mapped the history of America. According to Rolling Stone, it is set to be released on the 11th of June in Amazon.

‘Songs of America: Patriotism, Protest, and the Music That Made a Nation’

McGraw teams up with presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer John Meacham. Together, they took a look at some of the country’s most iconic songs through the lens of both the political sphere that produced them and the musicality behind them.

‘Songs of America’ will take a look at songs that were relevant during pivotal points in history, including the American Revolution, the Great Depression, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Vietnam War.

An example is Bruce Springsteen’s classic “Born in the U.S.A.” and “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the country’s national anthem.

Both authors will offer their insights into each tune, with Meacham into the political and the historical side of things, and McGraw diving into the musicality of each song. More information about ‘Songs of America’ will be released in the coming days.

McGraw is definitely not new to the political scene. In 2018, McGraw was alongside his wife and fellow country superstar, Faith Hill in joining Michelle Obama’s ‘When We All Vote Campaign.’ The pair appeared alongside other celebrities in a short video that aimed to encourage viewers to register and vote and make their voice heard in every election.

‘Grit & Grace’

Earlier in March, McGraw shared another literary project that details his health journey. The book is called ‘Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life.’ It’s a health and lifestyle book that details McGraw’s own health journey too.

“I’ve gone through a physical transformation in the last ten years, but it’s not just my appearance that has changed. My mind is clearer, my sense of purpose is sharper, and my relationships are deeper. Consistent physical exercise helps me bring focus to my life and to the people who mean the most to me.”

Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life will release on Nov. 5, 2019. But, take note that it will only be released at select retailers online.
