Tim McGraw Releases “Gravity” From Documentary Film “Free Solo”

-

Tim McGraw teamed up with Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Lori McKenna (“Humble and Kind”, “Girl Crush”), to write and perform the song “Gravity” for the documentary “Free Solo.”

The documentary follows soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares climb the face of the the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without a rope.

“There are few people who pursue their passion with the fearlessness of Alex Honnold. It’s both terrifying and exhilarating to be on that journey with him when you watch “Free Solo.” Lori McKenna and I wanted the lyrics of ‘Gravity’ to be a reminder that fear is a battle fought on a variety of planes, from mental to spiritual to physical, Tim said in a statement. In the studio, Byron Gallimore and I wanted a track that sonically resonated with Marco Beltrami’s score and felt as big as El Capitan,” said McGraw.

Now, Tim is releasing the emotional song to radio. In the new tune, Tim sings of the fragility of gravity and overcoming adversity to reach your dreams.

“Look at what you’ve overcome to get here / Look at the distance you’ve run / the doubts that you’ve pushed down / fear that you drown out when they said that it couldn’t be done/ In your head / in your heart / in your hands / in your head / in your heart/ in your hands / in your head / in your heart / in your hands / Gravity’s a fragile thing,” Tim sings to kick off the song.
