Just listen to him sing the hell outta this song. Excited to have @timothywaynemusic open up this last run of shows!”

Timothy Wayne responded excitedly in the comments, saying, “I can’t wait! I am Beyond blessed and honored to be doing this. I’m going to give it my all and then some!????????????????????????” Carly Pearce and Timothy Wayne will open for McGraw’s remaining June dates on his Standing Room Only tour. (People)
