Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw’s Sundown Heaven Town tour is coming to Sunfest on Sunday, Aug. 3, and he’ll be bringing his latest hit to a Cowichan crowd.

McGraw has notched his 54th career Top 10 song as his current single Meanwhile Back At Mama’s (featuring his wife and fellow country superstar, Faith Hill) continues to climb the charts this week.

In 1994, McGraw scored his first Top 10 with Indian Outlaw and since then he’s been making waves with country music fans every single year firing off 35 No. One songs in total.

Even before he headed home to Mama’s on this latest track, McGraw was riding high for months with his monster hit, Southern Girl.

The performer, the son of former baseball legend Tug McGraw, has sold more than 40 million albums and is always dominating the charts as new winners emerge from each of them.

McGraw has won Grammy awards, Academy of Country Music awards, Country Music Association awards and American Music awards by the score, besides racking up People’s Choice awards and numerous other gongs.

He’s also quite an actor, and has costarred with Gwyneth Paltrow, Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester in Screen Gems’ Country Strong.

Other films include The Blind Side, which was nominated for an Academy Award, Four Christmases, The Kingdom, Flicka and Friday Night Lights.

With a wife like the lovely Faith Hill, McGraw is often in the news and is obviously a favourite on red carpets everywhere. Unfortunately, she’s not coming with him on this tour but there will still be plenty of great music for his fans when he mounts the big stage at Sunfest to what is sure to be a tremendous cheer from the massive crowd.
