Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Tim McGraw lived a maudlin country music song, even before he rose to become arguably the genre's top star for a time, and one half of its most celebrated couple of the new millennium. The illegitimate son of an itinerant baseball player who went on to become a Major League star, McGraw grew up unaware of his pedigree, and when apprised of it, was initially denied by his notorious bad boy father, Tug McGraw. The latter later relented and helped his progeny receive his start in Nashville in the early 1990s, where fairly quickly he vaulted to stardom, catalyzed by the yahoo sing-along hit, "I Like It, I Love It." In 1996 he married one of his tour mates, the model-pretty country ingénue, Faith Hill, and the two - buoying each other's records via duets and tandem tours - became veritable Nashville royalty as their careers took off with a distinctive synergy. McGraw's career branched out in 2004, with an unlikely collaboration with hip-hop star Nelly on the single "Over and Over," as well as with his first feature film acting roles, laying the groundwork for leads in the 2006 family film "Flicka" and the 2009 football drama "The Blind Side."

From film appearances to his big-ticket shows to nearly every top accolade a country song-stylist could win - among them numerous Grammys and Country Music Association awards - McGraw established himself as Nashville's foremost crossover star.
