Tim McGraw History
Born on May 1st, 1967 in Delhi, Louisiana, Tim’s father is the famed baseball pitcher Frank “Tug” McGraw for the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies. However, the truth of Tug being Tim’s father was not revealed to him until the age of 11 and it was not until Tim was 18 did Tug accept being his dad. Since then, Tug and Tim remained close until Tug’s passing in 2004.
Tim was a solid athlete in high school and enjoyed playing baseball among other sports. However, by the time he got into college his interests started turning towards music. He lasted one semester at Florida Community College in Jacksonville and when his hero Keith Whitley passed away in 1989, Tim left and went straight to Nashville to try out a career in country music.
Tim managed to get a recording contract fairly quickly thanks to his impressive vocals, but his first single “What Room Was the Holiday In” along with three follow-up songs didn’t make a dent in the country charts. However, Tim’s second album “Not a Moment Too Soon” released in 1994 proved to be a smash hit with several singles, including ‘Indian Outlaw” and “Don’t Take the Girl” propelling Tim to superstar status.
The following year, the album “All I Want” was released and made its debut at number one on the country charts. The album offered one of Tim’s most memorable hits, “I Like It, I Love It” along with “All I Want is a Life” and “Can’t Be Really Gone”. However, the most life-changing event for Tim occurred on the following tour when he fell for Faith Hill who was the supporting act on the tour. They were married within a few months and today Tim and Faith have three daughters.
