Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s three daughters seem to have their famous parents’ talent genes. While McGraw says all three girls are good singers, their youngest, Audrey, recently wowed him by asking to take the stage during a pre-show acoustic set in Rogers, Arkansas, to perform for the crowd.

“I was pretty awestruck that she decided to actually go through with it ‘cause she’s really never done anything like that before,” McGraw said. “And for her to follow through, I thought she’d back out at the last minute and not do it.” Continue Reading

Tim McGraw Releases Sundown Heaven Town

Tim McGraw Releases Sundown Heaven Town Album

Tim McGraw makes it no secret that he is influenced by a number of musical genres and even musical decades. The ’70s, in particular, have inspired him throughout his career. Fans may not hear those influences on his new album, Sundown Heaven Town, however, as McGraw says it’s the “most country” album he has recorded in a while.

“It’s a country album because I’m singing it, but if you want to say, ‘Is it a traditional country? …’ It’s not a traditional country album, but I think it’s very encompassing of everything that I’ve done in my career,” he said. “I think it’s a good microcosm of what my 20 years in music has been in a lot of ways, so I think that you can certainly hear parts of my career through all these songs.” Continue Reading

Tim McGraw Gives 100th Veteran a Mortgage-Free Home

Tim McGraw joined forces with Chase and Operation Homefront to give mortgage-free homes to service members who were wounded or needed assistance. Two years ago, McGraw’s goal was to give away 25 homes. However, he gifted his 100th home in mid-August during a show in Texas.

“It’s a night I’m proud to say, with Operation Homefront and Chase, we’ve given away our 100th home to a veteran,” McGraw said before calling recipients, BJ and Brooke Frachiseur, to the stage.

“This is one of those songs that really paints a picture and sets a mood,” McGraw told Rolling Stone Country. “You look over and see the person that you love next to you sitting in the front seat, and you think, ‘How good do I have it? Life is perfect.’ There is a certain warmth to this song and several others like it that really establish the tone for the whole album.”

McGraw has been performing “Shotgun Rider” along with a number of other new tunes during his live shows over the last few months. According to him, releasing a new album isn’t done the way it used to be, with songs and album details kept from the public until the physical album was on store shelves. Continue Reading

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
