Top of the World

Album: Damn Country Music (2015)
Charted: 73
  • This feel-good, sentimental offering was written by Josh Osborne, Jimmy Robbins, and Jon Nite. The lyrics describe McGraw's love for his woman as he explains how with the right person by his side, the rest just doesn't matter:

    Don't know where we're gonna be
    But I know we're gonna be
    Sittin' on top of the world
    So keep hanging on to me

    McGraw introduced the song by beaming the tune to the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. They responded via Twitter, saying, "You're on #TopOfTheWorld... we orbit around it." It was released to radio on August 4, 2015.
