TIM'S TOPS ON THE CHARTS

Tim McGraw is used to setting records. Now he's added one more to the list. Tim's numerous chart toppers recently claimed him the honor of having the most cumulative weeks at #1 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, with a total of 58 weeks at the top, since the implementation of the Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) era, which began in January 1990. Neilsen BDS data is the information Billboard magazine utilizes to compile its song charts for all formats. "I am truly humbled to have achieved this record," says Tim. "I don't go out trying to record songs I think will go to #1; I try to record songs I think people will respond to. But when a single does make it you feel that you've accomplished that goal - and then there is the pride you feel for everyone else who was a part of that single because it is honestly a team accomplishment."
