Tim McGraw’s ‘Truck Yeah’ Goes Gold
Tim McGraw is basking in the joy of scoring yet another gold-selling single with his latest hit, ‘Truck Yeah.’ The song has exceeded 500,000 digital downloads sold. The amped-up tune is the first release from McGraw’s highly-anticipated debut album on Big Machine Records, the one he has quietly been working on over the past several months.
‘Truck Yeah’ has been McGraw’s live show highlight since his summer Brothers of the Sun Tour trek with Kenny Chesney, and is even more of a hit now after it has blazed up the Country Singles Chart. This week, the hit currently sits in the No. 9 position.
McGraw’s ‘Truck Yeah’ is the first gold-selling single for the song’s four writers — Preston Brust and Chris Lucas of the LoCash Cowboys, Danny Myrick and Chris Janson. Brust recently had a once-in-a-lifetime experience when the legendary McGraw called him up onstage in Illinois to share the spotlight during an electrifying encore of the smash.
The ‘Truck Yeah’ video features McGraw’s ‘Country Strong’ co-star, Garrett Hedlund, and has quickly become a fan favorite on Top 20 country music video countdowns. Something tells us that somewhere, Tim is pumping his fist and saying, “Truck Yeah!”
