Four of our favorite Tim McGraw songs
Samuel Timothy McGraw was born on May 1, 1967, in Start, Louisiana. In 1990, a demo of McGraw’s found its way into the ears of a music executive. From there, his career would take him to the top of the charts and even to the big screen. He also would go on to marry Faith Hill and become the modern-day power couple of country music.
Here are some of our favorite songs in celebration of his birthday!
