Tim & Faith Sing Song for New Shack Movie

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are teaming up to sing for the new big-screen drama The Shack.

We have a preview of the movie here…

“The Tim/Faith song ‘Keep Your Eyes on Me’ that anchors the movie is brilliant, resonating perfectly with one of the film’s deepest threads: an invitation to trust,” says William P. Young, author of the novel on which the film is based.

Starring Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer, the film tells the story of a father who finds himself questioning his beliefs after suffering a family tragedy. After receiving a mysterious letter in the mail urging him to visit an abandoned shack, he finds himself on a transformative and spiritual journey that’ll forever change his life.

McGraw also stars in the film.

Tim McGraw Stars in Big & Rich Video

McGraw has a crucial bartending role in the new Big & Rich video, ”Lovin’ Lately.” It’s part two of their four-part The Gravity Quadrilogy video.

McGraw co-wrote the song with Big Kenny and John Rich, and Trey Fanjoy directed the video, plus the other three videos (“Look at You,” “Brand New Buzz” and “Gravity”) that make up the 20-minute mini love story.

Fanjoy told CMT.com that this four-in-one undertaking required her to take the four songs, “and weave a narrative thread that would somehow connect them all together in a way that made sense.”

But each song/chapter also had to stand alone.

So in this one, Fanjoy said the Big & Rich live performance scenes were shot in Las Vegas, and the McGraw scenes were shot near Nashville in Dickson, Tennessee.

“He plays the owner of the bar and offers some wise words of advice to Carter, the young man who has recently experienced his first heartbreak,” Fanjoy told me. “I loved working with Tim. He’s a total pro and a natural. It’s understandable why he is a much-sought-after actor for features. He brings such authenticity and laid-back charisma to every role.”

While you can hear the Big & Rich song, what also comes through loud and clear is McGraw’s been-there-done-that talk with Carter.

“I’ve made so many mistakes in my past, I’ve spent most of my life wishing my knees bent the other way so I could kick my own ass,” McGraw says. “Mistakes, man, they’re just another word for experience. When you get the real thing, you’ll know it.”

Country Stars Make People’s “Sexiest” Issue

 

This year, People’s sexiest men issue includes two country stars who country fans have already determined to be very worthy of that honor: Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw.

 

McGraw credits swimming and eating oatmeal and chicken for his damn-near-perfect body, even at 48. “I feel like the best years are ahead of me,” he told the magazine.

 

Shelton won’t come right out and admit that he’s sexy, but does say that where he’s from is full of it.  “Oklahoma is sexy because it’s full of wide open spaces. There are areas where I live that there is no one around for miles and miles. That can make for some sexiness,” he said.

 

Garth Brooks also made the issue, in the Sexy at Every Age section, for being the hottest 53 year old.

Tim McGraw on the Holidays

Tim McGraw says the secret to a spectacular Thanksgiving is a great chef like his wife, Faith Hill.

McGraw says “turkey day” is a great one at their home in Tennessee, mostly because Hill is a master in the kitchen.

“For Thanksgiving, I don’t cook. Faith does all the cooking for Thanksgiving,” McGraw admits.  “We have to have turkey, we have to have our stuffing, and we have to have cornbread and peas, of course.”
