Here on Earth is the fifteenth solo studio album and sixteenth studio album overall by American country music singer Tim McGraw. It was released on August 21, 2020, by Big Machine Records. It is McGraw's first album since rejoining Big Machine. The album was produced by McGraw and Byron Gallimore. The release was preceded by the release of "I Called Mama".


Following the release of his 2015 album, Damn Country Music, McGraw's contract with Big Machine Records expired. McGraw and his wife Faith Hill signed a deal with Sony Music Nashville's parent company Sony Music Entertainment in February 2017. This deal saw the release of McGraw and Hill's first duet album, The Rest of Our Life, in November 2017, on Sony's Arista Nashville imprint. Two solo singles followed, 2018's "Neon Church" and 2019's "Thought About You", both released on Sony's Columbia Nashville imprint. McGraw returned to Big Machine Records in February 2020, following his departure from Sony earlier in the year.[2]

The album was described in a press release as "a collection of songs McGraw brought together to create vignettes of shared human emotions such as love, relationships, introspection and fun. The album as a whole provides a musical tapestry of life and a shared experience that we can use to connect all the different lives that we live, all the different parts of the world that we come from and use music as the universal language to bring people together."[3]

Release and promotion

The album title was announced in February 2020 along with the news that McGraw had returned to Big Machine Records.[2] The album was released on August 21, 2020.[4]


The album's first single, "I Called Mama", was released in May, 2020, and reached at number 8 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, number 2 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, the Top 30 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, and number 53 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Canada Country singles chart.

The music video premiered on May 27, 2020, and is "a tribute to mothers everywhere" with clips of McGraw's fans and their mothers, as well as appearances by his own mother, Betty Trimble, and wife, Faith Hill.[5]

The title track was released as a promotional single on July 10, 2020, along with the album's pre-order. The song's music video premiered the same day.[3]

The second single to radio, "Undivided" with Tyler Hubbard,[6] was released on January 13, 2021. It is part of the Ultimate Edition of the album released April 9, 2021. This marks McGraw's and Hubbard's second collaboration following "May We All" in 2016.

"7500 OBO", which was originally slated to be a single before the release of "Undivided", was released as the album's third single on August 2, 2021.[7]


The album was originally planned to be accompanied by the Here on Earth Tour, which was scheduled to begin on July 10, 2020, but it was cancelled due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.[4]
