It is easy to understand the fan loyalty to Tim McGraw. He is a country music superstar, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He appeared on the GMA Summer Concert Series, in Central Park, on August 25, 2023, the release date of his new album, “Standing Room Only”. Undaunted by the pouring rain throughout the show, the fans cheered Tim while he treated them to newly minted songs, “Hold On To It” and “Standing Room Only”. He also performed his 1999 hit, “Something Like That”. The crowd went wild when he announced his “Standing Room Only”, 30 + city tour, scheduled to kick off in March, 2024. He is a veteran of some of the most financially successful tours (12 as a headliner); but, it is his “Soul2Soul” tours, co-headlining with his wife Faith Hill, that his fans crave.
Tim McGraw’s 21 albums, 8 of which are “Greatest Hits”, have spawned 65 charted singles (“It’s Your Love”, “Just to See You Smile”, “Live Like Your Dying”, “Just To Hear You Say That you Love Me”). He has accumulated 3 Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 11 CMA Awards, 10 American Music Awards, and 3 People’s Choice Awards.
Tim has written 2 New York Times best-seller books, “Songs of America: Patriotism and “Grit and Grace”.
