Tim McGraw Snags Track on R&B Singer Ne-Yo’s New Album
Tim McGraw is no one-trick pony. Sure, he’s a multi-award-winning country music legend, an actor, a father and a husband to mega-star Faith Hill. And now, McGraw can add guest on an R&B record to his list of accomplishments and accolades. The country star teamed up with Ne-Yo for a track on the R&B singer’s upcoming album.
Of course, McGraw is returning a favor. You might recall that Ne-Yo made an appearance in ‘Only Human’ on McGraw’s ‘Emotional Traffic’ album, which hit shelves in January of this year. The album rose to No. 1 on the country charts, although ‘Only Human’ did not chart individually.
To hold up his end of the bargain, the ‘Truck Yeah’ hitmaker lends his voice to a song called ‘She Is’ on Ne-Yo’s ‘R.E.D.’ album. And no, the R&B star isn’t encroaching on Taylor Swift‘s territory with his album title. His is actually an acronym that stands for “Realizing Every Dream,” and it is due out Nov. 6.
Despite being wrapped up in a lawsuit with his former label, Curb Records, for an alleged breach of contract, McGraw is moving forward with a new album release of his own. Powerhouse country label Big Machine Records is working with the star on the album, which is expected to be finished in early 2013.
In the meantime, it looks like McGraw is happy to lend his famous country vocals to stars in other genres, too.
