Samuel Timothy “Tim” McGraw (born May 1, 1967) is an American country singer and actor. Many of McGraw’s albums and singles have topped the country music charts, leading him to achieve total album sales in excess of 40 million units. He is married to country singer Faith Hill and is the son of former baseball player Tug McGraw. His trademark hit songs include “Indian Outlaw”, “Don’t Take the Girl”, “I Like It, I Love It”, “Something Like That”, “It’s Your Love” (featuring his wife, Faith Hill), and “Live Like You Were Dying”.
McGraw had eleven consecutive albums debut at Number One on the Billboard albums charts. Twenty-one singles hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country 100 chart. Three singles became the No. 1 country song of the year (“It’s Your Love”, “Just To See You Smile”, and “Live Like You Were Dying”). He has won 3 Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music awards, 11 Country Music Association (CMA) awards, 10 American Music Awards, and 3 People’s Choice Awards. His Soul2Soul II Tour with Faith Hill is the highest grossing tour in country music history, and one of the top five among all genres of music.
McGraw has ventured into acting, with supporting roles in The Blind Side (with Sandra Bullock), Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom, and Four Christmases (with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon), and a lead role in Flicka (2006). He was a minority owner of the Arena Football League’s Nashville Kats. Taylor Swift’s debut single, “Tim McGraw”, refers to him and his song, “Can’t Tell Me Nothin'”.
In honor of his Italian-American heritage, McGraw was honored by the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) in 2004, receiving the NIAF Special Achievement Award in Music during the Foundation’s 29th Anniversary Gala.
Live Like You Were Dying
2004’s Live Like You Were Dying continued McGraw’s record of commercial success. The title track, dedicated to his father Tug McGraw, who died of a brain tumor earlier in the year, was a soaring ode to living life fully and in the moment, while the second single “Back When” was a paean to an easy nostalgia. Live Like You Were Dying spent seven non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on Billboard (10 weeks on Radio & Records), and went on to become the biggest hit single of the year. It also became one the most awarded songs/records by winning ACM Single and Song of the Year, CMA Single and Song of the Year, and a Grammy.
In late 2004, his unlikely duet with hip-hop artist Nelly on “Over and Over”, a soft ballad of lost love, became a crossover hit, spending 10 weeks atop the Top 40 chart. “Over and Over” brought McGraw a success he had never previously experienced on contemporary hit radio or rap radio, and brought both artists success neither had previously experienced in the hot adult contemporary market. The song also spent a week at the top of the UK single charts, and was McGraw’s first visit to the UK hit countdown.
Throughout the 2005 NFL season, McGraw sang an alternate version of “I Like It, I Love It” every week during the season. The alternate lyrics, which changed each week, would make reference to plays during Sunday’s games, and the song would be played alongside video highlights during halftime on Monday Night Football. Later in the year, McGraw became a minority owner of the Arena Football League’s Nashville Kats when majority owner Bud Adams (owner of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans) was awarded the expansion franchise.
 Let It Go
In April 2006, McGraw and Hill began their 73-concert 55-city Soul2Soul II Tour, again to strong commercial acceptance. The tour grossed nearly $89 million and sold almost 1.1 million tickets, making it the top grossing tour in the history of country music. It was named “Major Tour of the Year” by the prestigious Pollstar Magazine, beating out such heavyweights as Madonna and the Rolling Stones. In a special gesture, the couple donated all of the profits from their performance in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina relief.
Tim, along with Kenny Chesney, contributed to a version of Tracy Lawrence’s song “Find Out Who Your Friends Are”, which can be found on Lawrence’s album For the Love. Although the official single version features only Lawrence’s vocals, many stations have opted to play the version with McGraw and Chesney instead.
McGraw released his eleventh album, Let It Go, on March 27, 2007. The album’s debut single, “Last Dollar (Fly Away)”, reached No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, marking Tim’s first No. 1 single since “Back When” in late 2004. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album chart, marking his fourth No. 1 top 200 album and ninth No. 1 country album. His daughters can be heard singing the chorus during the last few seconds of the song on the video.
During the Academy of Country Music awards show on May 21, 2007, McGraw performed a song titled “If You’re Reading This”, which he co-wrote with The Warren Brothers. Several radio stations began to play the live recording of the song; as a result, it entered the Hot Country Songs chart at No. 35.
McGraw also produced the debut album of country music duo Halfway to Hazard. The duo’s first single, “Daisy”, peaked at No. 39 on the country charts in the summer of 2007.
In the summer of 2007, McGraw and Hill toured together once again in the Soul2Soul 2007 tour.
In the January 18, 2008 edition of the USA Today newspaper, McGraw was stated to be featured on the Def Leppard album Songs from the Sparkle Lounge, having also co-written the first single, “Nine Lives”, with Def Leppard band members Joe Elliott, Phil Collen, and Rick Savage. The unusual pairing goes back to 2006 when McGraw joined Def Leppard onstage for the song “Pour Some Sugar On Me”, and then collaborated on the song “Nine Lives” afterward. The album was released on April 25, 2008.
In May 2008, he hit the road with the Live Your Voice tour. The mainly-outdoor arena concert tour was his first solo outing in nearly three years. Also in May 2008, he debuted a new song off of his follow-up to Let It Go at the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, California.
In July 2008, Tim McGraw’s sixth single, and the title track of his album, “Let It Go”, was released to country radio. Following that, a seventh single, “Nothin’ to Die For”, entered the Country charts at No. 57 in late December. Tim McGraw released his third greatest-hits package, Greatest Hits 3 on October 7, 2008. The album features 12 tracks. Tim was set to debut a new song on the 2009 ACM Awards, but then cancelled his performance; he was replaced by Blake Shelton, who sang “She Wouldn’t Be Gone”.
 Southern Voice
Tim’s twelfth studio album, Southern Voice, was released October 20, 2009, and lead by the single “It’s A Business Doing Pleasure With You”, which was shipped to radio outlets in late June 2009. Southern Voice was argued to be Tim’s last album for Curb Records, following the dispute over releasing his third Greatest Hits collection back in October 2008 without his permission. Tim did not approve of the release. On November 30, 2010, Curb Records released his fourth greatest hits compilation, Number One Hits.
