Better Than I Used To Be-Tim McGraw (Curb)

This is a great Country song. Eleven months ago, when I recommended adding the first version, the one by Sammy Kershaw, I said in this space that since Sammy wasn’t ‘hot’ anymore, it probably wouldn’t chart (didn’t), but that if a Big Name released it, it would be a quick add just about everywhere. Let’s now see if I was correct. The song is sung from the point of view of a man of growing maturity and wisdom, seeking to tame his demons; not quite fully there yet but he’s getting close.
