It’s not every day you hear a recording artist apologize for a piece of work they just put out. But that’s the case with Tim McGraw. He’s publicly apologized for the greatest hits album of his that just came out, but he’s not taking the blame for it.
Tim says that he’s disappointed with his label, Curb Records, who decided he should put a greatest hits album out instead of an album with new music on it.
He says, "I am saddened and disappointed that my label chose to put out another hits album instead of new music. I've only had one studio album since my last hits package. It has to be just as confusing to the fans as it is to me.”
Curb Records is denying they knew anything about McGraw’s discontent, saying they had had several conversations with him about all aspects of the greatest hits album. They also make the point that the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Chart
Tim went on to say, “I had no involvement in the creation or presentation of this record. Sure, I love the songs and I don't want to take anything away from all the creative people who were a part of making those records. But the whole concept is an embarrassment to me as an artist. In the spirit of an election year, I would simply say to my fans 'I'm Tim McGraw, and I don't approve their message.' "
Hey at least he has a sense of humor about it!
