Tim McGraw: Emotional Traffic tour and New SiriusXM Channel

By  | 

This Friday Tim McGraw, one of the biggest stars in country music, goes on tour, an Emotional Traffic tour, starting in Tampa, Florida on April 29th, hitting San Diego’s Cricket Wireless Ampitheatre on June 5th and ending up in Hershey, Pennsylvania on August 14th. McGraw will open with The Band Perry and Luke Bryan and Outback Steakhouse is the tour sponsor and Live Nation is the promoter.

McGraw has enjoyed a 10-year-long stellar streak that boasts 33 million albums sold, 25 No. 1 singles and nine multi-platinum albums, all the while managing a family of three kids with his wife, Faith Hill.

In addition to kicking off his music tour, he also just recorded a new album and launched his own SiriusXM channel, “Tim McGraw Radio,” on Wednesday.  The McGraw SiriusXM channel is said to include all of his top hits all the way back to 1994 and McGraw fans will enjoy his wit and personal style as he shares his favorite artists’ songs in the mix and tells the stories behind his own.

McGraw is said to be ending his relationship with long-term label,  Curb Records, after the Emotional Traffic tour.  The album was finished in the fall but there is not set release date.

It’s been over a year since McGraw donned his black-hat music style as he had been busy promoting his recent movies, “The Blind Side” and “Country Strong.”

The actor McGraw pulled out of  “Safe House”, a Denzel Washington movie, due to his busy schedule but is said to be considering other offers, including a zombie film.

In addition to singing and acting, McGraw has found time to co-author a children’s book titled, “My Little Girl” as he and Hill are together raising their three girls.  The premise of the story is written in the forward by his wife: “I hope this story provides quality time for fathers and daughters to enjoy each other’s company and make memories reading together.”

McGraw sees quality time spent together, with a father and daughter, as meaningful and life shaping.  Even if it’s simply running errands together, McGraw encourages fathers to let their little girls just hang out with them.  The point is: together.
