Tim McGraw’s “Standing Room Only” Becomes 46th Chart-Topping Single Of His Career

Tim McGraw is no stranger to topping the charts.

“Don’t Take the Girl” became his first #1 song following its release in 1994. Since then, dozens of McGraw’s singles have reached #1, including “I Like It, I Love It,” “Just to See You Smile,” “The Cowboy In Me,” and “Humble and Kind.”

Now, McGraw is celebrating the 46th #1 song of his career…”Standing Room Only.”

“Standing Room Only” was released in March of this year as the lead single off of his album of the same name. The song was written by Craig Wiseman, Tommy Cecil, and Patrick Murphy.

Listeners instantly resonated with the song, and sent it to the 39th spot on the Hot Country Songs chart during its debut week. It debuted at the 20th spot on the Country Airplay chart that same week.
