When I saw this story about Cole Swindell this week, it brought back memories. Cole Swindell has crossed off another item on his bucket list. He sang I like it I love it with Mr. Tim McGraw himself last weekend. Love Cole, but I beat him to it! LOL Here’s my story about what happened at PNC a few years back.
I have followed Tim’s career since he began in Louisiana a long time ago. I drove from Cleveland, Ohio to Monroe, LA to take the night job on Kickin Country Y106, very close to where Tim went to college.
Tim always goes out of his way to make you feel welcome backstage. You never feel rushed, and he always takes some time to talk with everyone from radio and their guest. But at one of his shows a few years ago he surprised us all!
I was backstage with my daughter Emily and we were invited to watch the show from the side of the stage. Which is pretty cool on its own. Then when Tim goes into his huge hit “I Like It. I Love It,” he motioned for us to come on stage. I thought he can’t be pointing at us. But he was!
What a rush, singing with Tim on stage in front of twenty-thousand plus fans! I moment I’ll never forget.
He didn’t call me back up for the encore though?
