OFFSTAGE: Tim McGraw’s Video Shoot Reveals His Love of ’80s Country

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

When a Tim McGraw video shoot starts with
him asking, “What else can we do by Keith Whitley?” you know it’s going
to be a good shoot. I mean, his two-hour live stream of the making of his “One of Those Nights” video wasn’t without technical
difficulties. But once it was done and McGraw had answered some fan questions, you could revel in the way he spent his downtime:
warming up his voice as he was walking around the set. He did songs like John
‘s “What’s a Memory Like You (Doing in a Love Like This)” and “If It Was Anyone but You,” then he did a nice
chunk of Dan Seals’ “Everything That Glitters (Is Not Gold)” and followed
it with Randy Travis’ “1982” and “On the Other Hand.” Then McGraw asked
longtime bandmate Bob Minner for a G chord and started in on his Keith Whitley medley, with 1985’s “That Stuff” (complete
with hand claps), 1986’s “Ten Feet Away” and 1987’s “I’m No Stranger to the Rain.” (But then somewhere in the process of making
a video for a new song, he let a little bit of another one of his tunes shine. Not sure of the title, but it’s about a man
who used to be Mr. Life of the Party and is now prisoner No. 37405.)

In answering fan questions between takes, McGraw
said “Where the Green Grass Grows” is his favorite song to perform, “It’s
Your Love”
is the favorite video he’s made, that he will be doing a solo tour to promote his new album and that his daughters
are listening to Mumford Sons, One Direction, Muse and Adele
these days.
