Musical Monday

I’m going country today!

It’s not my favorite kind of music, but Tim McGraw has a few songs I like. He can get pretty twangy, yes, but boy, this song, Live Like You Were Dying, really rocked my world. I’d heard the song before and even have put it up here once, I think. But, for some reason, while I was looking through songs for Musical Monday, this one clicked with me.


Live Like You Were Dying, by Tim McGraw



The following lyrics really stuck out:

Loved Deeper

Spoke Sweeter

Gave forgiveness I been denying

Someday I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying


Do you like Tim McGraw?

He seems to be a class act –hey wasn’t I just saying that about last week’s Musical Monday pick (Taylor Swift)?

What is it about those country stars?

  1. I’m not a big country music fan, but that is an awesome song. I think he is a class act, good family man, etc. Every time I hear that song I get chills. The lyrics are so powerful. Great song choice!

  2. If I’m not listening to Christian music, I love country! Tim McGraw has always been a favorite. “Don’t Take the Girl” still makes me cry.

  3. A great example of the power of collaboration. “Live Like You Were Dying” actually was co-written by Tim Nichols and Craig Wiseman. McGraw performed it and touched hearts around the world. Let’s hear it for the writers 😀

  4. I’m not really a country music lover, BUT a lot of people around me are. They live for it. I think if anything, it’s the words that seem so much more heart felt than the pop music plus you can understand them.
