In the late ’90s few country artists were bigger than Tim McGraw.

How big was he? If you went to a Tim McGraw concert back then, Kenny Chesney was still his opening act.

On May 4, 1999, Tim released his fifth album, “A Place In The Sun.” Riding a wave reserved for only the biggest stars, that album would go on to become his fourth consecutive chart-topper, selling more than 4 million copies in the U.S. and Canada alone.

It’s hard to believe, but on an album where four of the five singles went to No. 1, one of the biggest songs was a cover!

“Please Remember Me” was the lead single, but it appeared just four years earlier on Rodney Crowell’s “Jewel Of The South” album. Tim’s version was so good, however, that not only did it go to the top of the charts, but it was also nominated for the Best Male Country Vocal Performance Grammy the following year, but lost out to George Jones’ “Choices.”
