I might be wrong, but it feels like there's been a ton of songs with that title or phrase "Live Like You Were Dying", so the phrase has lost a little bit of its impact for me and kind of turned into a "Hallmark sentiment". I'll just blame Bon Jovi - pretty sure they've used that phrase or a variation of it in at least a dozen songs ;-) I notice this stuff...the curse of being a "lyrics guy", I guess. That said, I do like the Tim McGraw song as I remember.

I do like a fair bit of country. My all time fave country group is probably Blackhawk, featuring Henry Paul (The Outlaws), Dave Robbins, and Van Stephenson (RIP). Henry's voice is just so distinct. Love their melodies, harmonies, lyrics...just great stuff.

I see Darius Rucker mentioned. I was a Hootie fan, so maybe its just me, but I haven't warmed to his solo stuff as much. Its nice and all...catchy...just seems a bit too "safe" to me now. Which is how my Dad used to feel about Hootie, so I guess I'm finally turned into him lol

Also a couple somewhat local country acts I've gotten into. Both duos with predominately female fronted vocals.

Caroline County:
Julia Sheer and Matthew McGinn. She's the main singer here (or was, appears they've broken up), but before I was a fan of their group, I really enjoyed his solo stuff, that's how I got into them.
"Heaven Knows" (great ballad)

Native Run:
Rachel Beauregard and Bryan Dawley. Got into them because I'm a fan of Luke Brindley, who used to be the 3rd member of the group. Gave this group a chance very recently and liked it, too.
"When I'm Taken" (upbeat and catchy)
