Tim McGraw will kick off his highly anticipated Standing Room Only Tour in just a few weeks, and now, the superstar is revealing more details about the upcoming trek, including the announcement of the opening acts. 

Standing Room Only Tour Opening Acts Revealed

The three-time GRAMMY winner announced early Monday the slew of rising stars set to join select dates of the Standing Room Only Tour as opening acts. Those artists include Abby Anderson, Heartwreckers, Randall King, Landon Parker, Peytan Porter, Restless Road, Track45, Timothy Wayne, and The Woods. As confirmed last summer, GRAMMY winner Carly Pearce will appear on all dates of the tour as direct support to McGraw. 

“I always want to deliver the best possible concert I can for the fans,” McGraw previously shared in a statement. “We’ve got some really special plans to make this the biggest and the best tour we’ve ever done.”

McGraw’s Standing Room Only Tour kicks off on March 14 and will hit arenas across the country through June 29. The tour is produced by Live Nation and presented by Sports Illustrated (a subsidiary of Authentic Brands Group). See below for a complete list of dates. 

“One Bad Habit” Arrives At Country Radio

Along with a new tour, 2024 will also bring a new radio single for McGraw, whose new single, “One Bad Habit,” is at country radio now. The track, which appears on his EP, dubbed Poet’s Resumé, officially impacted country radio last week and raked in over 100 reporting stations. This follows the success of the Louisiana native’s 47th No.1, “Standing Room Only,” which reached the top of the charts last fall. 

Written by Marc Beeson, Aaron Eshuis, and Tony Lane, “One Bad Habit” finds McGraw crooning over his flaws in a relationship and admiring his lover for putting up with him.

Tim McGraw – One Bad Habit

“She don’t drink whiskey much, but I do/ She don’t sit on old bar stools, but I do/ I don’t worry ’bout where she’s been/ I’m the only trouble she gets in/ She don’t have tattoos on her skin, but I do,” he sings on the first verse. 

The chorus goes, “’Cause I’m her wild side/ The one crazy thing she does/ I hope she never quits me/ I hope she never gives me up/ Well, I’m a mile away from perfect/ If there’s a curse word, man, I’ve cursed it/ I’m the only hell she’s еver gonna raise/ The onе bad habit I hope she never breaks.” 

McGraw co-produced the track alongside his longtime collaborator, Byron Gallimore.
