Asked by The Boot
, how he would the describe the Damn Country Music
album, McGraw replied: "I think it's like a life in passing: It doesn't have a theme, the album itself. One song doesn't necessarily tie into the next song. It's not, like, thematic … Each song tells a story of its own. Each song is like its own little movie."
"I think what the title track, 'Damn Country Music,' does is, it sort of ties it all together," he added. "It sort of explains and talks about the passion you have for something and what it costs to have that passion, to fight for it and love it, like I do country music, and how I started out in country music, moving to town and all those things. So I think it lays out, 'This is what country music is to me,' and then the album explains it."
