Tim McGraw Gets Physical

Tim McGraw hasn’t been shy about sharing shirtless photos on Twitter recently. One of those photos showed off part of his exercise regime as he flipped a tractor tire across a parking lot. There is no denying he’s in the best shape of his life.

“I was an athlete growing up so I’ve always sort of been a gym rat a little bit,” Tim said.  But he also admitted that wasn’t always the case. “There’s been times in my life and in my career where I let it slide a little bit,” he added.

Being in shape helps him with his high energy performances night after night on the Brothers of the Sun Tour with Kenny Chesney. But he has a more important reason for staying active.

“I just like being healthy,” he said. “I quit drinking four years ago because I wanted to be healthy and because I wanted to be around for my grandkids. And I think more than anything I want to see my kids grow up and I want to meet my grandkids and hopefully my great grandkids.”

Tim’s latest single, “Truck Yeah,” is flying up the charts at country radio. The Brothers of the Sun Tour will hit New Orleans and Houston this weekend.
