Tim McGraw will kick off his Sundown Heaven Town Tour in May, but he’s been hard at work on the show for a while. During the planning process, he makes it a collaborative effort, bringing in professionals, family, friends and even friends of friends to get their thoughts and opinions on what makes a good show. He also looks for a set that will energize everyone in attendance, especially him and his band.

“You can have every technology that’s out there, you can have the biggest screens, and you can have the best lights and all that kinda stuff, but if you’re not having fun, then they’re not gonna have fun,” he said. “I like having all that stuff, and sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not. Even in the middle of having it, sometimes I feel like I wish I didn’t have it. But, it’s just about what makes us feel really excited about it.” Continue Reading

Keith Urban has no less than six nominations at Sunday’s ACM Awards. Three of those nods are for “Highway Don’t Care” with Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift. The song, which features Keith on guitar, is up for Vocal Event, Music Video and Single of the Year.

“When I got the call from Tim about playing a solo on ‘Highway Don’t Care,’ that’s just one of those magical little moments, you know?” Keith said. “When I heard the song I went, ‘God, this is a great song,’ and I heard it before Taylor was on it. The first time I heard the whole thing completed was on the radio, and it sounded amazing. I just thought, ‘Gosh, I think this song’s gonna do really well.’” Continue Reading

Tim McGraw is planning to release a new album in May, featuring his latest single, “Lookin’ for That Girl.” With the time he has spent in the studio over the years, Tim has learned a lot about how he approaches the recording process.

“It’s about making a great record, about making something you feel proud of,” he said. “If it doesn’t purge you emotionally, then you’re not gonna have the reaction you want from the fans who listen to it, because music has to be cathartic, and all art is about purging your emotions.” Continue Reading

“You know the older you get, the harder it is to stay in shape,” he said. “And I love doin’ what I do, I wanna do it for a lot longer. I don’t ever wanna go out onstage when I can’t enjoy it. Being fit is something that helps me enjoy it, and makes me add more to my show and more energy to the show.” Continue Reading

What Would It Take for Tim McGraw to Record with Wife Faith Hill?

What Would It Take for Tim McGraw to Record with Wife Faith Hill?

Tim McGraw plans to release a new album this spring. While it’s always a possibility that he and wife Faith Hill will record another duet, he won’t go into the studio with her just because he happens to be married to an incredible vocalist.

“We don’t wanna just go cut a song to be cuttin’ a song together,” he said. “I think it sort waters down what we do, not as a family or as a couple, but what we do as a singing couple. I don’t want to water that down or try to do something that’s just for fun or not necessarily for something that means something. I think it’s about finding the right song as much as anything. There’s other factors, but I think that’s the biggest factor.” Continue Reading
