Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw has been at the forefront of Country Music for nearly three decades. Through performing, producing and high-profile acting roles, McGraw has weathered the changes of Country Music to remain one of its most recognizable superstars. The Louisiana native moved to Nashville in 1989, just as a wave of new artists began taking over the Country charts. McGraw kicked off his career success with mid-‘90s hits like, “Don’t Take the Girl,” “Not a Mom
ent Too Soo
n,” and “I Li
ke It, I Lo
ve It,” which all spent multiple weeks at No. 1.
McGraw collected his first of 21 ACM Award trophies in 1994 for Top New Male Vocalist and Album of the Year (Not a Moment Too Soon). The ACM then bestowed Single, Song, Vocal Event and Video of the Year awards to his 1997 smash duet with his wife Faith Hill, “It’s Your Lo
ve.” McGraw concluded the decade with back-to-back Male Vocalist trophies. However, his biggest radio hit lay ahead: 2004’s “Li
ve Li
ke You Were Dy
ing,” named ACM Sin
gle and S
ong of the Year. With “I Ca
lled M
ama” in 2020, he entered his fourth decade of radio success.
One of Country Music’s most collaborative artists, McGraw co-produced Jo Dee Messina’s breakout albums and recorded ACM Award-winning hits with Ken

sney & Tr
acy Law
rence (“Fi
nd Out Who Your Frie
nds Are”), Flo

gia Li
ne (“May We A

ban (“Hi
ghway Don’t C
are”). He joined the ACM Award-winning Yello
wstone franchise in the lead role of Jame

llard Du
tton on 1883. McGraw’s 17th studio album St
