‘Nashville Without You’ hit way back in 2013, but Tim McGraw is now releasing his “never before seen” music video for the ‘Two Lanes of Freedom” hit.
Originally written by Kyle Jacobs, Joe Leathers, and Ruston Kelly, ‘Nashville Without You’ follows ‘Truck Yeah’ on Tim McGraw’s landmark album, “Two Lanes of Freedom.” While the song was nowhere near as big a hit as the latter for the country icon, it still holds a special place in his heart.
McGraw said to Billboard magazine of the song’s final cut, “It’s a country lyric, it’s about country music, but there’s a universalism to that melody.”
Moreover, McGraw clarified that he “wanted that record to have a shimmer to it. I guess the best way to describe it would be an evening looking out on a calm lake, how it shimmers. I love what it says, and I love that it follows ‘Truck Yeah’ on the record.”
Now, seven years after the album’s release, Tim McGraw is celebrating his hometown of Nashville with the “never before seen music video” for ‘Nashville Without You’. Announcing the video on Twitter today, McGraw posts that “#Nashville wouldn’t be Nashville without you. Watch the never before seen music video… out now on YouTube.”
McGraw follows his caption with a preview of the video. The full piece, however, is available on YouTube. We’ve embedded it so you can watch below.
Watch: Tim McGraw – Nashville Without You
Within the brand new music video, McGraw showcases Nashville landmarks. As a resident of Nashville, he’s very familiar with iconic locations such as the Broadway Strip, where all the honkey tonk action takes place. Much of downtown is seen throughout, as well. Other lyrics within the song reference the legendary Ryman Auditorium (the original Grand Ole Opry), and the current Grand Ole Opry stage.
