Critical reception[edit]

An uncredited Taste of Country review stated that "Tim McGraw keeps it mellow with the first single from an upcoming project. “Top of the World” is a gentle way for the singer to describe his love to someone. McGraw uses a familiar metaphor to make it clear this woman couldn’t make him feel any finer."[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by McGraw Music and premiered in November 2015.[2]

The song debuted on the Country Airplay chart at No. 30 and the Hot Country Songs chart at No. 35 upon its release. The following week it debuted on the Country Digital Songs chart at No. 18, selling 16,000 copies.[3]
