Tim McGraw, like so many other country superstars, had to cancel his tour plans for 2020 and most of 2021 due to the pandemic, but he has been still doing a handful of concert dates this fall including an upcoming show Saturday (9/17) in Illinois.
Tim’s return to the stage has been an enjoyable one just the same, and he compares his live concert experience to that of a football game. He said, “I just look forward to the energy. I always compare it to being an athlete in high school, in the locker room before a football game or a basketball game or before a baseball game even, just the energy that you have and the anticipation.’
He adds, “I don’t get nervous when I’m doing live shows. I get really excited and just full of energy and adrenaline. To me it’s like game day. I get pretty jacked up for it.”
McGraw does admit his nerves get to him a bit when he performs on TV. He offered, “That makes you really nervous, and that’s when I really have to gather myself.”
Tim has been surfing fan videos online recently and shared himself listening to a young girl who covered his 1990’s hit “Don’t Take The Girl,” saying on Instagram, “Amazing Cover from @alexandrakaymusic.”
