OFFSTAGE: Tim McGraw Hears a "Young Hank Jr."

Published on May 14, 2013 by CMT News

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

Tim McGraw is out on the road right now with Love
and Theft
and Brantley Gilbert. And in this QA
with Access Atlanta
, McGraw talks about how he ended up choosing both openers. Like how he’s a big fan of Love
and Theft’s music and has toured with them before. And how Gilbert brings to mind Hank
Williams Jr.

“Brantley, we’re on the same label, which I didn’t realize it until I was into it. I love his attitude
and he brings a big energy to the stage. He’s a good guy. He reminds me of a young Hank Jr.,” McGraw said. “I want people
to go out with me that I want out there.”

McGraw added that he hopes these younger artists don’t come to him for any
words of wisdom. “I don’t know that they want any advice from me! I’m always there, but I might not have the right answers,”
said McGraw.
