Tim McGraw has released an original song called “Gravity,” which he co-wrote with Lori McKenna (“Humble and Kind,” “Girl Crush”) and performed for National Geographic Documentary Films’ feature Free Solo. The song speaks to the intensely intimate, personal story of climber Alex Honnold in Free Solo, which opened in theaters last month.
When the film premiered, Tim said, “There are few people who pursue their passion with the fearlessness of Alex Honnold. It’s both terrifying and exhilarating to be on that journey with him when you watch ‘Free Solo.’ Lori McKenna and I wanted the lyric of ‘Gravity’ to be a reminder that fear is a battle fought on a variety of planes, from mental to spiritual to physical. We tend to think ‘fearlessness’ is synonymous with big bold gestures, but there’s also a fragility inherent in risk — and we wanted that to come through . . .”
“Gravity” is currently available to stream and download.
Free Solo is described as an intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream of climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock – the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park – without a rope.
“Gravity” follows on the heels of Tim’s current single, “Neon Church,” which was released to radio last month.
