Riff: TIm McGraw – “Number 37405″

Feb 4, 2013

And the music from his radio is like freedom down a dirt toad/Makes that eight by ten a brighter hill

from Number 37405 lyrics by Tim McGraw

Reflecting on the 15-year jail term, where the Top 40 countdown provided the only solace, and the tragic incident which led to it, “Number 37405″ tells the cautionary tale of a one-time honky-tonk singer whose life turned upside down following a DUI. Take note Randy Travis.
