"Some Things Never Change" is a song written by Walt Aldridge and Brad Crisler, and performed by American country music artist Tim McGraw. It was released in April 2000 as the fourth single from his album A Place in the Sun. While it went to number 1 in Canada, it peaked only at number 7 in the US, and was the only single from the album not to reach number 1 in the US. It also peaked at number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Deborah Evans Price, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, saying that the single "offers a pretty, lilting melody, understated acoustic instrumentation, and another nice performance from McGraw." She goes on to say that what McGraw lacks in vocal gymnastics he has always "more than made up for in personality, and the current single is no exception." However, she states that "while the melody tends to grow on you, there's not a whole lot going on otherwise that makes this track grab attention." Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song a C grade, saying that it "goes nowhere lyrically or melodically, and there isn’t a drum beat or steel guitar hook around to save it." He goes on to say that the song is such an "easy listening number that’s so easy to listen to, it might put you to sleep."
"Some Things Never Change" debuted at number 47 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of April 15, 2000.
