June 3, 2014
Nashville, TN- June 3, 2014- Country Music Icon Tim McGraw will be featured on “Oprah’s Master Class” this Sun., June 8 at 10pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The acclaimed, Emmy nominated series features an unprecedented first-person insight into the minds and lives of top entertainers. In the episode, McGraw talks candidly about his childhood growing up in small town Louisiana and shares personal stories about his path to the top of the charts and what he’s learned as a father of three daughters.
Also in the episode, McGraw recounts how he sold everything to make the move to Nashville 25 years ago, “I sold everything I had and I sold water skis and shotguns and just everything that I had. I got on a Greyhound bus and got to Nashville at four in the morning. Never looked back,” recalls McGraw. “I mean that’s what I wanted to do; I knew that I wanted to do this no matter what happened. If I was going to be playing in a club and barely making my rent or if I was going to be playing in front of 100,000 people, I didn’t care. I was going to be playing music.”
This season of Oprah’s Master Class also features Justin Timberlake, Barbara Walters, Sharon Stone and more.
McGraw’s newest album SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN is due out Sept. 16 on Big Machine Records while his current single “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s” (featuring Faith Hill) continues to heat up the charts and radio. He’ll pick up his SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN 2014 TOUR this weekend with stops in Pittsburgh, PA (6/6); Indianapolis, IN (6/7) and Cleveland, OH (6/8). The tour will hit over 30 cities this summer and features Kip Moore and Cassadee Pope.
