A Place in the Sun was McGraw’s final album before his first Greatest Hits collection was released and featured four tracks on that collection, each of which reached Number 1 on the US Country Charts, as well as a fifth single which charted in the Top 10.
The first single, the Rodney Crowell penned hit, “Please Remember Me” was one of McGraw’s most heartfelt ballads, a powerhouse vocal performance. The second single, the more up-tempo “Something Like That” was one of those great summer love songs that was released before songs started to be about nothing but that. Looking back on it now, it’s still one of the greatest songs of its ilk.
This album also won Album of the Year at the 1999 CMA Awards and McGraw also won Male Vocalist of the Year.
As I mentioned before, in addition to its great singles, it also featured spectacular album cuts including “Somebody Must Be Praying For Me,” “Senorita Margarita,” “Carry On,” “Eyes of a Woman,” and perhaps, the best one of them all, “You Don’t Love Me Anymore.”
This was an album that hit on all emotions; there was something for every type of fan of true country music.
