Editors’ Notes Completing country-hunk Tim McGraw's Greatest Hits trilogy with a compilation that offers no new recordings was a bit risky and maybe even somewhat off-putting to his more ardent fans — that is until they realize Greatest Hits, Vol. 3 offers up a few bona fide gems. McGraw's cameo on the inspirational Tracy Lawrence song "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" is a welcome addition, as is the exceptional live version of "Real Good Man." The rest of Greatest Hits, Vol. 3 overflows with undeniably catchy hits that are all sequenced to play like the soundtrack to a biopic of McGraw's musical life (how 'bout it, Hollywood?). "Back When" sets the tone with a honky-tonking, new traditional song that rocks and rolls around a pedal steel as McGraw sings nostalgically about the innocence of bygone times in the 20th century. Conversely, "Angry All The Time" is a loving duet with his wife that offers some refreshing and realistic insight into McGraw's marriage with country star Faith Hill. If "Nine Lives" makes you want to don cheetah-print spandex and tease your hair, this could be because the song is a rare recorded moment in music history where McGraw briefly fronted Def Leppard.
