“The thing I miss the most about playing live is the connection I feel to everyone,” McGraw says in the release. “Even if we can’t physically be together this summer, hopefully, this will give us a chance to share the new album and know how much we are still together seeing each other through.” Tim McGraw on announcing his virtual concert via live stream for his latest 2020 album ‘Here on Earth’.
Despite the social distancing guidelines implemented worldwide, our country artist Tim McGraw is basically unstoppable in terms of providing entertainment and celebrating the debut of his latest solo album in five years! No, he’s not violating the rules because it will be us who would let him stay in our homes. Tim McGraw will be having a one-night-only live stream event.
Here on Earth’s Prepping and Program
The ticket sales started on July 21 in Tim McGraw’s official website for $15. The virtual concert will be held in a month, August 21, 9PM ET, and live from Nashville. The planned program will include McGraw’s talk with his songwriters, the story behind his album, hangouts with his five-piece super-acoustic band, and of course, they’ll play a few songs from the album.
What made his album special, besides the fact that it’s his first singles album in five years, is that ‘Here on Earth’ marks his re-joining on the Big Machine Labels Group just this February. Remember when he left the group to release ‘Speak to a Girl?’ Nonetheless, it was an awesome duet which he performed with his wife as part of their ‘The Rest of our Lives’ album.
Original Plans for “Here on Earth“
Originally, Tim McGraw wanted his album ‘Here on Earth’ to have its release debut on the road, but due to protocols on social distancing and the Coronavirus pandemic, he had to scrap the idea. He said on the topic regarding his album’s release that one of the things he misses most playing in live concerts is his connection with the audience.
The lockdown may be hard to bear due to the cancellation of plans and the unavailability of physical activities. Our artists felt that struggle, too. Imagine when Tim McGraw got the news that he’s not going to have that road trip. But on the bright side, he still did his best to celebrate the success of his upcoming album’s release with all of us, but from the safety and comfort of our homes.
