Release date: March 2007
Let It Go is the eleventh album from Tim McGraw. The album, released on March 27, 2007, is his first studio album in two and a half years. Let It Go debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 with sales of 325,000. The album has produced seven Top 20 chart singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including one Number One; one of these seven songs was included only on later issues of the album. Of all his albums, this one has produced the most singles, seven singles.
The first single from the album, "Last Dollar (Fly Away)" (written by Big Kenny of Big & Rich), reached the top of the country charts in early 2007, giving McGraw his first Number One hit since "Back When" in late 2004. Following "Last Dollar" was a #7 country hit in "I Need You", a duet with wife Faith Hill. Shortly after the latter was released, McGraw charted with a live rendition of the song "If You're Reading This", which McGraw performed live at the Academy of Country Music awards in May 2007. A month after this song entered the charts, the album was re-issued with "If You're Reading This" appended to the track listing, and that song was officially issued as a single, reaching #3 on the country charts.
"If You're Reading This" was followed in late 2007 by "Suspicions", a cover of the Eddie Rabbitt Number One hit from 1979. This cover became the second Top 40 hit of McGraw's career to miss Top Ten, peaking at #12 on Hot Country Songs. Following it were "Kristofferson" (which also failed to make Top Ten, peaking at #16) and, in mid-2008, the title track, which peaked at #2 early December. A seventh single, "Nothin' to Die For," was released in January 2009. It debuted at #57 on the Hot Country Songs chart late December, before its official release.
