We gave it a B

America’s favorite suburban outlaw shucks his hillbilly pretense and corn-pone cartoonishness for a more temperate earnestness. It suits him; McGraw has always been an unconvincing honky-tonk hero. The smooth adult-contemporary flow of ”She’s My Kind of Rain” and ”That’s Why God Made Mexico” places him squarely in wife Faith Hill’s camp, and his remake of Elton John’s ”Tiny Dancer” is shameless pandering, but at least he’s got good taste.
