Tim McGraw is the first album by American country music artist Tim McGraw, released in 1993. It includes the singles "What Room Was the Holiday In",[1] "Welcome to the Club", "Two Steppin' Mind" and "Memory Lane", none of which reached the Top 40 on the country charts. This is the only studio album of McGraw's career not to achieve a music recording sales certification or to enter the Top Country Albums charts. The tracks "Memory Lane" and "Tears in the Rain" were co-written by Joe Diffie, and the former was previously recorded by Keith Palmer on his debut album.

Brian Mansfield and Thom Jurek of Allmusic rated the album two and a half stars out of five, saying that it was not memorable outside its three singles, but that it showed the "roots of [his] individuality".[2]
