“I’m not very healthy when it comes to football game snacks,” McGraw said. “I like cheese dip and Doritos and tacos and chili, and all that sorta stuff. Some of our favorite things that we have during football season is Frito pies. Most people, I guess, especially if you’re a Southerner, are familiar with Frito pies where we just have Fritos, cheese and chili. We eat a lotta that on weekends.” Continue Reading

Tim McGraw's New Album - Sundown Heaven Town
Tim McGraw has revealed more details about his new album, Sundown Heaven Town, set for release on September 16. In addition to a collaboration with wife Faith Hill on his current single, “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s,” McGraw also worked with Catherine Dunn on “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools” and Kid Rock on “Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs,” which only appears on the album’s deluxe edition.

“This album is very encompassing of everything that I’ve done in my career,” McGraw said. “I think it’s a good microcosm of what my 20 or so years in music have been, in a lot of ways. You can certainly hear parts of my career throughout all of these songs, as well as the future and where my music is headed. To me, the title of the album is all about that time where you stop doing what you have to do, and start doing what you want to do. Continue Reading

10 Country Stars Who Totally Rock the Cowboy Look

Great American Country is saddling up for a new show. The Highway Cowboys are a new breed of American heroes who volunteer to heard loose cattle threatening the safety of drivers along busy Texas roads. The new series debuts next Tuesday, July 8 at 10/9c, so we’re celebrating country stars who rock the cowboy look.

George Strait, the King of Country Music, is the epitome of a cowboy. Known for his signature cowboy hat and Wranglers, he’s now retired from touring, giving him more time to spend at his Texas ranch, working cattle, riding his favorite roping horses and spending time with his family.

Kenny Chesney is more of an island cowboy than a Texas cowboy, but he’s rarely seen on stage without his cowboy hat.

“I’ve been fortunate in my career and I probably wouldn’t have been able to do the things that I’ve done, and had the success that I’ve had, and come from where I come from, in any other country than this country,” he said. “It’s a great country. You always wanna look at ways that you can give back.” Continue Reading

During a recent episode of Oprah’s Master Class, Tim McGraw sat down with Oprah to discuss his life and career. He opened up about his decision to quit drinking six years ago and how it has helped his relationships, his career and his health.

“It got to the point that I knew that I drank too much and I knew that it was affecting my personal relationships, it was affecting my professional relationships, it was affecting my family,” he said. “It was turning me into a person that I didn’t want to be. I knew that I was at a point that I could lose everything that I had in my life, first and foremost my family, and I stopped.” Continue Reading

Tim McGraw‘s star-studded concert, Superstar Summer Night, premieres on Great American Country this summer, June 21 at 8/7c. The two-hour concert event features McGraw performing songs from his latest album Two Lanes of Freedom, and some of today’s chart-topping artists.

This once in a lifetime television event is the perfect opportunity for fans to see McGraw on stage with some of today’s biggest music stars, including: Jason Aldean (“1994″), Dierks Bentley (“Summer on Fire”), Luke Bryan (“Crash My Party”), Brantley Gilbert (“Country Must Be Country Wide”), Faith Hill (“Piece of My Heart”), Keith Urban (“Long Hot Summer”), Florida Georgia Line with Nelly (“Cruise (Remix)”), Lady Antebellum (“Goodbye Town”) and The Band Perry (“DONE.”). The special will also feature can’t-miss duets and collaborations with John Fogerty, Taylor Swift, Ne-Yo and Pitbull.

“There’s no better time for live music than in the heat of the summer,” said McGraw in an interview with CBS. “Country music is hotter than it’s ever been, and with some help from a few friends in other formats, too, we’re going to get summer started off right. I’ve been lucky enough to have all these artists tour with me, and it’ll be fun to get everyone back together to help raise money and bring some attention to Lifting Lives. Not enough people know what good work the organization does, and when I was asked to help put this show together, it was a no-brainer.”

Father’s Day is this Sunday and some of country music’s biggest stars also happen to have a soft spot for the women in their life – namely, their daughters. Tim McGraw has three daughters with wife Faith Hill. In a household full of women, he has learned a thing or two.

“I think that probably the biggest thing that I’m still always working on is having a house full of women is learning patience,” he said. “I’ve never been a very patient person so I think either I’m getting mellower with age or they’re teaching me patience. It’s one or the other. I’m not sure which one it is. Probably a combination of both.” Continue Reading
