"Live Like You Were Dying" is proven not only a pretext for Tim McGraw. For him it's more than just wisdom words, instead it's his inspiration that could make him a better person in this life and gain a better achievement in his music career.
The hit single, which was penned by Tim Nichols, successfully won the Robert J. Burton Award as Most-Performed Song of the Year at BMI's annual Country Awards held Tuesday at the performing rights organization's Nashville office. In the meantime, Harley Allen, Big Kenny of the songwriting/producing team Big & Rich, and Richie McDonald of Lonestar shared Songwriter of the Year honors.
This isn't the only attainment that "Live Like You Were Dying" achieved. Previously the single already spent 10 weeks at No. 1 and has won multiple awards from the Recording Academy, the Country Music Assn. and the Academy of Country Music, among others.
