Tim McGraw Is Ready to Get Intimate

Tim McGraw wrapped up his Brothers of the Sun Tour with Kenny Chesney this weekend but he doesn’t have much time for a break. He and wife Faith Hill’s new Soul2Soul show at The Venetian in Las Vegas starts Dec. 7. He’s ready for the change of venue, going from performing to 50,000-60,000 fans a night to about 1,800. “It makes me nervous to be that intimate,” Tim admitted.

Other than the early days of his career when he cut his teeth playing clubs or the Bread and Water club shows he’s played after some of his concerts, he has hasn’t done many smaller venues. He likes to joke about his club show days.

“We were all so drunk then that it didn’t matter when we played those,” he said. Tim stopped drinking four years ago, so that won’t be a problem in Vegas. “There’s still an energy there that you bring and there’s still the energy that you feed off of from the crowd and it changes a little bit but there’s still something that happens there and that’s what you look for. You look for those moments that happen and you sort of thrive on them.”

Tim’s current single, “Truck Yeah,” might not be on the set list for the Soul2Soul shows, though. He says most of the performances will be he and Faith together instead of individual performances. Tickets for Soul2Soul at The Venetian are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
