Tim McGraw launched the #DeepCutChallenge on social media, getting his fellow country artists to perform their favorite cover songs.
Tim says…“How it started, I’m not a great guitar player. I used to play more, but one thing I have done is play a lot more during this time and really got my chops up a little better.”
He said… “I started sitting around playing all the songs that I was learning when I was in college,” including his first contribution to the challenge, John Schneider’s “Take the Long Way Home.So, I just sat down and started playing it. I said, ‘I think I’m going to record this and just see what happens,” Tim explains. “Then we recorded it and I said, ‘Why don’t we challenge people to do it, and we did and it worked out.”
