More Tim McGraw Bios & Profiles
Biography #2 (for Flicka)Tim McGraw has earned a place in the front ranks of American entertainment, regardless of medium. In his musical journey he has sold over 33 million albums, 4 million singles and placed 26 singles at #1. His enduring status as one of country music's most popular and respected live performers has seen his concert tours consistently rank at #1 in country music and top-five in all genres.
He has established a noteworthy presence in movies, with his well-received debut in Friday Night Lights opposite Billy Bob Thornton; in television, where he has had three highly rated NBC specials; and in pop music, his duet with rapper Nelly stayed atop the charts for no fewer than thirteen weeks. It is an impressive body of work, one that has made him one of America's most important and popular performers across the board. His standing among the entertainment public as a whole is exemplified by his scores of awards and nominations including three Grammys, eleven Academy of Country Music Awards, nine Country Music Association Awards, eight American Music Awards, three People's Choice Awards, and much more.
He remains one of the music world's hottest draws, and this year's Soul 2 Soul II Tour 2006 found him reunited with wife Faith Hill for a repeat of the 2000 tour that drew critical accolades and broke box office records across America. Anticipation for a follow-up was widespread and upon conclusion, the 55 city tour is now history-making as the highest grossing tour in country music history surpassing Madonna as the top touring American artist this year.
Through all his success, McGraw's eyes have always been focused squarely on the music. He has taken full control of his most recent projects, recording with his touring band, putting his artistic stamp more solidly than ever on the material he chooses to record. The success of that approach is highly evident with his tenth project, Tim McGraw Reflected: Hits Vol 2, his second collection of greatest hits, which is currently certified platinum becoming McGraw's 9th album to consecutively debut at #1 on the albums chart.
For FLICKA, McGraw again forged new career firsts, releasing a song co-written specifically for the movie on his newly established record label, StyleSonic Records. "This is the first song I've ever written for a movie, McGraw explains, and the first song I've ever written that I've recorded for one of my records. Tom (Douglas) came to the set and we spent time talking about the father-daughter relationship in the movie." Executive Produced by McGraw, the Motion Picture Soundtrack for FLICKA includes 'My Little Girl co-written with Tom Douglas and performed by McGraw as the end title song to the movie.
