Evidence of that growth has never been stronger with the release of his latest album, Southern Voice--his tenth studio album overall and very possibly his best.
McGraw's career achievements remain remarkable: Since releasing his debut album in 1993, the singer has scored 30 No. 1 singles, received 3 Grammys, 14 Academy Of Country Music Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards, and 10 American Music Awards--and also sold 40 million albums. For that matter, marrying Faith Hill is no small achievement, either!http://www.timmcgraw.com/.
And of course McGraw's career isn't confined only to music--he'll be co-starring in The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock due later his year, and there'll clearly be more to come.
Y! Music was thrilled to get the man and his illustrious band in our studios recently, where he performed several songs and gave a warm and revealing interview. Check out the first part of our encounter with McGraw here, then come back next month for even more surprises.
