Tim McGraw’s career began the day Keith Whitley died in 1989. It was then that McGraw quit college and moved to Nashville, quickly finding success singing in bars and clubs. He wouldn’t become famous for five more years, however, when ‘Indian Outlaw’ became a hit. Louisiana-born McGraw grew up believing his stepfather, Horace Smith, was his father, but at age 11 he found his birth certificate and discovered baseball’s Tug McGraw was actually his dad. The two wouldn’t grow close until years later, but the elder McGraw inspired perhaps his son’s most successful song, ‘Live Like You Were Dying.’ McGraw’s star grew even brighter when he married Faith Hill in 1996. Now, he’s among the most successful and best-selling country artists ever.
Birthday: May 1, 1967
Top Songs: 'Everywhere,' 'Red Rag Top,' 'Back When'
Tim McGraw isn't shy about his love of carbs, but the star watches his waistline, doing his best to avoid them. However, all bets are off on Thanksgiving, when he dips into delicious dishes prepared by his wife, Faith Hill.
Tim McGraw's daughter Gracie was hardly a stage newbie when she joined her father to sing "Here Tonight" in Nashville over the summer. The 18-year-old college freshman fronts her own band, an all-female alt-rock group called Tingo.
Tim McGraw’s new song, “Damn Country Music," is the title track to his forthcoming album. The song is about risking it all for a passion, and the artist says even though he didn’t write it, the track hits close to home for him and many others in the music industry.
Tim McGraw's new album, Damn Country Music, has just been released, and it has some big cuts. The overall classically country album has a collaboration with Big & Rich called "California," and another song called "Humble and Kind" that he thought the world needed.
