“If you had told me that I would sign a major record deal and that my second album would sell 5 million copies, I'd still be laughing,” a modest Tim said. “When I first moved to Nashville in 1989, I fully expected a long ride. I thought I’d try to learn as much as I could about the business and learn more about the music. I jumped in head over heels right at the beginning and just got lucky quicker than I thought.”
Luck certainly plays a part in his success, but so does incredible talent and a knack for picking the right songs.
Tim decided to share with Country Weekly readers his secret formula and how he chose the songs for his newest album, All I Want.
