Tim McGraw Named to TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People 2015
Tim McGraw has been one of the biggest stars in Country Music for more than two decades now and the accolades continue to pour in. Tim's latest accomplishment is being named to TIME Magazine's list of the 100 Most Influential People 2015. He was selected as one of the top 100 in the category of "Artist." If you happen to be selected for this prestigious honor, someone writes a piece about you to be featured in the magazine and on the website. For Tim it was Jon Meacham. In his piece titled, "Country's leading light," Jon had nothing but wonderful things to say.
One of the most important things Meacham pointed out about McGraw is the transition from single party animal to loving husband and father. He opens his piece with,
“Art reflects life,” Tim McGraw says, alluding to an idea that goes back to Plato and Aristotle, “and life reflects art.” When he first went to Nashville more than two decades ago, he was, as he puts it, “young, single and tearing it up,” and his early songs reflected his life’s manic pace. Now married to the luminous Faith Hill, with whom he has three daughters, McGraw is making music that’s more about raising a family than raising hell—more about seeking lasting connection and celebrating continuity.
It's no secret that Tim has had his fair share of issues in the past, but with a supportive family and a flourishing career, things continue looking up for the country legend.
