Tim McGraw has appeared in movies, released his own cologne and is always on the lookout for different career opportunities. Ultimately though, music will always be the focal point in his life.
“Anything that’s happened in my life that has been really good – meeting my wife, the things I’ve been able to do in my career, being in movies – it all comes from music,” he said. “Music has been the gas peda. All those things are driven musically. That’s what’s gotten me to this point. When things weren’t very good in my life, I had music that I could count on.”
Tim knows that without his music, he likely wouldn’t have had the opportunities he’s had so far. “I don’t think that I could ever, ever consider doing a movie without knowing that music’s the reason I’m doing it,” he said. “They weren’t gonna come pick me off the street and say, ‘Hey, you wanna come be a movie star and be in my movie?’ That would never happened had I not had a hit record. That’s where my heart is. That’s the one thing I feel like I can do well.”
Tim just released his latest single, “Southern Girl,” to radio. He will debut the song’s video on July 23 on radio stations websites nationwide.
