I'm guessing TIM MCGRAW was thinking today would be a two-fisted celebration of his pre-game performance at last night's college football championship game, coupled with the announcement of his summer tour dates.
Unfortunately, the pre-game is dominating the news, and NOT in a good way. Tim and SHY CARTER did their song of "Way Down" and the Internet torched it.
They made fun of his voice, the performance . . . and the billion times they sang "Way down."
(Here's a post from someone who nailed that call.)
Tim McGraw definitely put time and effort to write this song pic.twitter.com/E2iwMs0C0R— Ericstotle (@Eazy_EI) January 14, 2020
Other comments included, "the worst song I've ever heard" . . . "LSU deserved to lose because the song was so awful" . . . and one person said they like Tim, but it was a "terrible song choice and performance."

I don't know where I'd rank this Tim McGraw song playing on ESPN but it's "Way Down" on my list of good music.— Stephen Hicks (@StephenABC30) January 14, 2020
Tim McGraw man, you’re letting me way down with this song selection.— Mike Seiffert (@MikeSeiffert1) January 14, 2020
