Tim McGraw Recalls The Personal, Traumatic Roots Of “Live Like You Were Dying”

"That's got to be one of the most special memories I have of making any music anywhere," says the legendary artist

On a forthcoming Father’s Day appearance by Matthew McConaughey on Tim McGraw’s Beyond The Influence Radio show on Apple Music Country, the vocalist and host shares a story regarding how “Live Like You Were Dying” — his 2004-released classic — was developed. Written by Tim Nichols and Craig Wiseman, the song notes how realizing that a loved one has a terminal illness offers a new perspective on life. Moreover, the desire to experiencing life at its fullest while also becoming a better person is typically the result of this introspection.
