10 Things You Didn’t Know About Tim McGraw
Tim McGraw is easily one of the biggest country music stars in the industry. He’s been topping the charts since the mid ’90s and shows no signs of slowing down! In addition to being unbelievably good looking, this country crooner is well known for his amazing voice, captivating stage presence, songwriting and even his acting. Lately, Tim has been branching outside his singing career with roles in big feature films like The Blind Side, Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom, Four Christmases, Flicka and Country Strong! Not only that, but he’s also married to mega-singer Faith Hill, making these two the hottest country couple. There’s so much to love about Tim McGraw which is probably why he has such a huge fan following. He’s been on the scene for quite some time, but here’s a few things even his most loyal fans might not know about him!
10. Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney Arrested
Best buddies, McGraw and Chesney were arrested after causing a bit of a ruckus while headlining a music festival near Buffalo. Back in the summer of 2000, the two friends wound up in jail and charged with assaulting a sheriff’s deputy. They spent four hours in jail before being released on bail. According to news reports at the time, Chesney asked the daughter of the sheriff’s deputy if he could ride his horse and then instead of waiting for an answer, grabbed the horse and rode off ignoring orders to stop. Apparently, two officers tried to demount Cheseny from the horse which is when McGraw and his manager got involved leading to a minor scuffle. The three of them were arrested, arraigned and released on bail. The three men had to wait an entire year before they got their day in court. But it was worth the wait because the charges were ultimately dropped and after the verdict was read, Chesney, Faith Hill and McGraw hung around to sign autographs for fans.
9. He Isn’t Tech Savvy
Tim has revealed that he has strict social media rules in his house, and although he hasn’t divulged the details of what these “rules” are, we do know that his daughters aren’t allowed to have Twitter accounts. Also, Tim himself doesn’t operate his Twitter account (aside from a few tweets here and there). He does have a page, but it’s fully run by his management team. His excuse for not operating his own social media isn’t to monitor usage and protection like it is for his daughters, his reasoning is most likely due to the fact that he isn’t very tech savvy! In an interview with Taste of Country he admitted he’s still in the learning stages when it comes to Twitter. He said, “I’m getting better. I mean I can email if I need to. I don’t like to, but if I need to.” Sounds like Tim is one hard man to get a hold of!
