Tim McGraw just released “Neon Church,” his first solo single in two years, and it’s already top 25 on the Country chart.
I need a neon church with a jukebox choir
Full of honky-tonk angels
With their wings on fire
In a neon church with the party crowd
Where the good times roll
And the music’s loud
Baptize me in that barroom smoke
Bartender, preach to me ’til my heart ain’t broke…
“Neon Church” combines powerful lyrics with McGraw’s trademark emotional vocals, a winning combo that’s earned him 25 number one singles!
There are acres of Country oldies about barrooms and broken hearts, but something about McGraw’s “Neon Church” reminds us of the late Gary Stewart, dubbed “King of the Honky-Tonk,” and his now classic “She’s Acting Single, I’m Drinking Doubles,” which hit #1 in 1975.
