McGraw sees no conflict in his upcoming participation in a concert to benefit Sandy Hook Promise after critics call the show a gun-control fundraiser. He says he can both be a gun owner and support the concert. He is taking part in the concert because a band member is friends with a parent whose child was a victim of the shooting at the Newtown school.
Let me be clear regarding the concert for Sandy Hook given much of the erroneous reporting thus far. As a gun owner, I support gun ownership. I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety — most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children. I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that. The concert is meant to do something good for a community that is recovering.

She was attacked in the dark near the parking area, and there didn’t happen to be anyone around in that parking area. She was taken to Allegiance (Health) where they checked for injuries, and a rape kit was done and sent to the Michigan State Police lab to check for DNA.
The country artist stops his Truck Yeah song for a split second and swats an Atlanta fan away. A spokesperson tells Billboard:
Tim was singing out in the audience, and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd. He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeans … and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show. He didn’t know who had grabbed him and was trying to keep his pants from being torn.
McGraw speaks about his life as a singer, actor and family man.
You have to own it. Anything that you want to be good at and anything that you want to succeed at

I think that defines a lot of the people that have spent a lot of summers with us out there on the road. The first time I heard Feel Like a Rock Star, I knew I was gonna record it because it defined everything that we’re about out there on the road.
