Written by Jeffrey Steele, Al Anderson and Craig Wiseman, “The Cowboy In Me” was released in 2001 as the third single from McGraw’s Set This Circus Down album.
The song followed up “Grown Men Don’t Cry” and “Angel All The Time,” on what became a run of five straight #1 singles.
Stripping the song down to more traditional roots, the new version will be featured in the next episode of the show, set to premiere this Sunday.
