Back in 2013, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, and Taylor Swift performed, “Highway Don’t Care” on the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards.
I didn’t have any recollection of anything unusual about it. Then I read this quote from Tim this morning:
“At the end, when we were all do these superhero poses at the end at the front of the stage, where all three of us together; and Keith does this big guitar thing, and he swings the neck of his guitar out and misses my face by millimeters. Comes right by my cheek with the guitar. I didn’t flinch, and we ended the song. I walked out and said, ‘Man, you almost killed me,’ and he didn’t even notice that he had done it. You can go back and look at it now. You can see where it just barely missed me. He could’ve killed me… Though that would have been pretty good to be knocked out by Keith Urban’s guitar. I would’ve taken that.”
What?! How did I miss this…so I checked it out. The incident he refers to occurs at about the 3:53 mark.
And IT’S NOT EVEN CLOSE! WTH is Tim McGraw talking about?! Keith must have thought he was out of his mind when he said this. His guitar wasn’t within a foot of his head.
