1. Tim McGraw- Angry All the Time
From his 2001 album Set This Circus Down, “Angry All the Time” by Tim McGraw is actually a cover of Bruce Robinson, who originally recorded the song on his 1998 album Wrapped. McGraw delivers an emotional ballad about a relationship that is falling apart- “You ain’t the only one / Who feels like this world left you far behind / I don’t know why you gotta be / angry all the time.”
